Promotional poster for the Willie Mack benefit event on October 7th, in So Cal. Willie’s father “Foots” passed away recently, and 100% of this event’s profits will go to Foots’ funeral costs.
This isn’t something that’s really widely known, but Willie Mack is really the epitome of a hard working guy who is trying his damnedest to make his way up in pro wrestling, despite the fact that paying the bills while doing so is not easy. A few friends of mine who are big supporters of the SoCal wrestling scene have mentioned that Willie doesn’t live a flashy lifestyle, to say the least. Coming from nothing, and on an indie wrestler’s pay, covering something like a funeral is not easy. A huge collection of SoCal promotions are coming together to promote this event to help support one of the region’s brightest young stars in his time of need, including PWG, Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (formerly NWA Hollywood), SoCal Pro Wrestling and more.
If you are in the area and love great wrestling, please help out. It’s always great to see people in wrestling coming together for a great cause.
Details: Tickets are just $10 for all ages, you can call (310)-644-7448 for more information. The show is at 5pm, October 7th, at the 'Pappy Pineda Dome', 7962 Salt Lake Avenue, Huntington Park, CA 90255.
