Help Anthony Idol Recover!

Created September 5, 2017

My name is Angel Castillo, and I'm a ring announcer for Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. I am raising funds for Ryan Colberg, aka Anthony Idol, to recover from pectoral reattachment surgery.

Anthony Idol has been a mainstay on the SoCal professional wrestling scene since 2014, headlining cards and winning titles in promotions like Empire Wrestling Federation, SoCal pro, and my promotion, Championship Wrestling from Hollywood.

Late last month, Anthony  unfortunately tore both of his pectoral muscles. He has already had surgery and doctors estimate he will take 6 to 12 months to recover. 

This injury interferes both with his work as a wrestler and as a personal trainer. He is now deprived of his livelihood for possibly the next year, and because of the freelance nature of both his jobs, he doesn't have the luxury of health benefits.

The professional wrestling industry is very punishing and unforgiving. Many have their careers tragically cut short by injuries, punished for the crime of not yet having "made it big." Let's rally around Anthony and show him gratitude for all the effort he's put in night in and night out and the risks he's taken out of passion for his craft!

Anthony shared this on Facebook today:

"I have never been this excited for a doctors appointment before. Today I believe is a 'pre-op' appointment before my second surgery which will repair my right pec.

The waiting has been the hardest part, just like Tom Petty said. I am so anxious to get physical therapy/ rehabilitation going. Thank you all who have donated and shared as I still have a long road ahead."
