GoFundMe Set Up For Jimmy Rave Memorial

GoFundMe Set Up For Jimmy Rave Memorial

Earlier this week, the wrestling world lost Jimmy Rave, who was best known to fans for his work in TNA and ROH. His life had been challenging in recent years, as after years of battling drug addiction, he lost three limbs due to an MRSA injection. He would leave behind an ex-wife and two children, and one of them, Kailah, has launched a GoFundMe to pay for a memorial and help with expenses. As of writing, $5,375 has been raised out of a $20,000 goal from a total of 125 generous donors.

Rave started out in the wrestling business in 1999, and over his career, shared a ring with the likes of Bryan Danielson, Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, and CM Punk. He was also part of The Rock ‘n Rave Infection in TNA along with Lance Archer and Christy Hemme. Unfortunately, his career was derailed by substance abuse issues, and he had to attend rehab. However, he would attempt to rebuild his life and took a job at the Bartow County Peer Support, Wellness, and Respite Center in Georgia before sadly dealing with the amputations.
