Kassius Ohno Launches GoFundMe For Tracy Smothers

Kassius Ohno Launches GoFundMe For Tracy Smothers

Pro wrestling veteran Tracy Smothers who competed in WCW, WWE, ECW, and Smokey Mountain, was sadly diagnosed with stage III lymphoma last November. In addition, Tracy has also lost 45% of his heart’s function following a suspected heart attack.

Now his close friend and fellow wrestler Kassius Ohno of NXT has started a GoFundMe to help him, writing:

I met Tracy Smothers on a spot show in Wisconsin when I was 19 years old. I thought to myself, “there’s no way this guy can be THIS friendly.” Well, here we are over 20 years later & I’m sure hundreds of you have had similar stories throughout your lives of Tracy going above & beyond to be welcoming, helpful & kind. Our relationship may have started with Tracy showing me the ropes, so to speak, but to this day, Tracy has always looked out for me as a person & as a friend. He just… cares. I spoke with him on the phone tonight and asked if he would mind if I started this page for him. I told him that he’s spent most of his life & his career helping others. It’s time for some of us to give him a little help back.Kassius Ohno
