This organization was created by former ECW/WWE wrestler Dawn Marie in an effort to help create awareness and money to support the health care needs of retired Professional Wrestlers.
What most people don’t know about the wrestlers who entertain us week after week is that health insurance is hard to come by.
Most end their career with none at all, what most people don't know is that wrestlers are independent contractors who don’t have or receive the benefits of other professional entertainers and athletes.
Wrestlers Rescue is looking not only to create awareness of this need and to raise funds but they’re also hoping to put in place a financial advisory for the active wrestling community to call on for advice on how to plan for their future which includes retirement, pension, college funds, family needs etc. They’re also trying to set in place a Health care program that can be bought into at a group rate so that the community can afford care for themselves and their families.
Wrestlers Rescue is also planning a cruise called “Slam on the High Seas” on Carnival Cruise Lines this coming July 26 – 31, 2009 where you can interact with over 20 stars from the world of professional wrestling for five whole days!!! Activities include convention style meet and greet, Q & A session, mini dojo, dinner with the stars, and much more. The deadline to book your trip has been extended to January 10, 2010. To read more about the cruise you can see the press release here, or visit wrestlersrescue.org.
