Help Bring Tommy Rogers Home….

FANTASTICS

Ladies and gentlemen, as many of you know, the pro wrestling world lost one of the true legends in tag team wrestling earlier this week with the untimely death of Tommy Rogers. Tommy and partner Bobby Fulton formed the duo, The Fantastics, and were quite simply one of the best tag teams in pro wrestling history. Tommy passed away in Hawaii where he had lived the past few years and his family has started a Go Fund Me campaign to help with the expense of returning his body to his native Florida to lay him to rest. Tommy gave everything he had to entertain the fans over the years. The least we can do is band together and help bring tommy home. Costly joint replacement surgeries these past few years had eaten away at his savings. As fans we often take for granted the incredible expense professional wrestlers incur not having traditional health insurance through their employers. The pro wrestling fraternity is a tight brotherhood. Let’s all come together and help support a man that gave so much for our entertainment over the years!
