Former TNA and Ring of Honor star Jimmy Rave was forced to retire after undergoing a surgery that required amputation of his left arm above the elbow. A 21-year veteran, Rave has had lots of impact and influence on several independent wrestlers, and the indy wrestling community has started to give back to him.
Drew Gulak took to Twitter earlier today to share a GoFundMe that has been set up for Rave, hoping to help him with his medical expenses along with helping him get a prosthetic arm that would allow as normal of a life as he can get.
For 20 years, Jimmy Rave has given his blood, sweat, and tears to the Professional Wrestling Business. With lucrative stints in TNA Wrestling, Ring of Honor, Dragongate, and CZW, Jimmy Rave is someone who’s name is synonymous with the sport we all love!
Jimmy has given so much of himself to this business and now, it is our turn to help him!
Due to an unfortunate health issue, Jimmy had to undergo an amputation of his arm to save his life! With mounting medical expenses and also having to face the reality of never wrestling again, our friend needs our help!
This fundraiser is to assist Jimmy with his medical expenses and most importantly to help him acquire a prosthetic arm that will help him lead as normal a life as possible. This chain of events has been heartbreaking but as his support system, we can come together and give any amount that we can to help Jimmy overcome this hurdle!
Any amount you can give would so greatly appreciated. Jimmy needs all the love and support he can get at this time and we thank you SO much for helping to alleviate this burden.
Rave has left a huge mark on wrestling even if fans aren’t aware. We at Bodyslam hope for the best for one of independent wrestling’s most unsung talents.
