Isaias Velazquez Injury Fund

On August 28th, 2017, during a match on a local wrestling event, Isaias Velazquez was injured on a freak accident, landing on his head and injuring his head and neck. He suffered a concussion, a seizure and stayed two days and one night at the ICU. The doctors told him that he's lucky he's in such great shape because if this happened to anyone else they would be paralyzed from the neck down. Luckily, he suffered no broken bones or herniated discs.

Isaias is not only a friend and mentor to me, but to many people in the Chicago wrestling scene. He's given so much and helped so many, it's only right the we do what we can to give back. He is one of the most genuine and kind hearted people I've ever met and is quite possibly one of the best unsigned professional wrestlers on this planet. Please, if you can, help one of the cornerstones of the Chicago wrestling scene get back on his feet and back in the ring.

Thank you.
