Pro Wrestling Legend “One Man Gang” Lost Home to Flooding; Reaching Out for Help

George Gray, who wrestled under the names One Man Gang and Akeem, lives in Southern Louisiana where flooding currently ravaged the region.  His home was essentially destroyed as a result.  Because of his location, FEMA had declared it a no flood zone, so his homeowner’s insurance did not cover any of the damage.

Gray has launched a Go Fund Me page to help get back on his feet after the flood.  He writes:

“Thankfully though our son was house sitting while I was in Georgia doing a meet n greet signing & was able to save all 8 cats, 2 dogs & a lizard,” Gray writes. “However almost everything my wife & I ever owned was ruined. All the beds, couches, appliances, electronics, clothes, basically everything in the entire house was destroyed while submerged for 3 days.

A lifetime of wrestling memorabilia, wrestling videos & family albums were among the most irreplaceable. Like most in our area FEMA had declared our neighborhood a no flood zone and like most we didn’t have flood insurance. Our home insurance said they cover zero zip nada of the damages. Any help you can give to get us back on our feet & our home livable again would be most appreciated. Thanks for your support.”

It’s not often that we share things like this on our site, but it would be great if wrestling fans could come together to help support Gray in this trying time.  You can contribute to Gray’s fund by visiting his Go Fund Me page at this link.  Thank you to ProWrestling.net for bringing this to my attention.
