It was an emotional October night for Shane Helms when fans, friends and colleagues joined forces to support a fundraising comedy show organized in his honor by wrestling legend Mick Foley.
More than $5,500 was generated at the event at the Comedy Zone in Charlotte.
Foley originally had the idea of proceeds from the show going toward Helms’ mounting medical costs, stemming from a severe motorcycle accident he and his girlfriend were involved in May.
“It’s hard for a guy like me or any pro wrestler to get medical,” Helms said. “All my attempts to get medical since I left WWE have been a dead end. I guess Mick knew I was going to have to front all these medical bills.
