It has become known that an-ex WWE superstar is hoping to raise funds for major surgery he requires following some 25 years in the business.

As What Culture has reported, Jerry Lynn, who is probably best known for a number of memorable ECW matches against wrestlers such as Rob Van Dam and Lance Storm, needs to undergo surgery on both his neck and his back.

Impressive career

In March 2013 Lynn called time on his career, putting an end to the impressive 25 year span he had as a professional wrestler.

During his tenure, the 52-year-old worked for several professional wrestling promotions such as WCW, Ring of Honor, TNA and WWE.

Unfortunately now however, it appears this long spell of having an occupation which takes such a toll on him physically, means he must undergo having three discs in his neck replace in addition to having his vertebrae fused and bone spurs removed.

Understandably, Lynn requires this surgery urgently and is in need of help in order to cover the some $5,000 cost as well as the three months off work he will need to have in order to recover properly.

For someone who had so much success as a professional wrestler during his time under a number of branches, it is sad to be made aware of not only his need for help but the damage it has done to Lynn's body.

Brutal reality

This entirely proves the fact both the WWE Universe as well as those who work under the company should not forget about the brutal reality of working as a professional wrestler.

With such a hectic work schedule consisting of so few days off, it is clear to see what effect having such a physical job will have not only in the short term but in the long term, too.

Despite looking somewhat invincible physically, as well as their in-ring ability appearing to prove something similar too, professional wrestlers are only human, which unfortunately means surgery such as that which Lynn needs is all too common in this business. 

The gofundme.com project which has been set up for Lynn is hoping to raise $15,000 with any leftover donations going to the charitable organisation Nashville Rescue Mission, which offers food, clothing and shelter to those who need it. 

An unfortunate victim of a number of injuries throughout his career, Lynn is no stranger to needing medical treatment, but this time he will be hoping wrestling fans of any kind will be willing to give something back in order to help him.
