Michigan Child Battling Cancer Gets Love From All Elite Wrestling
Since moving to Kalamazoo in 2017, one of the coolest things I've gotten to take part in is Independence Pro Wrestling, a local federation based out of Kalamazoo. One of the top athletes in the company and in Michigan is Michiana Champion Aaron Orion, leader of the Death Threat Army. Orion, a U.S. Army vet himself, has taken a step back from wrestling as of late however. It was revealed recently through his Facebook that his 9 year old son Wyatt was battling a brain tumor. Wyatt has supposedly been dealing with these issues since he was 3.
Recently someone got in touch with Mike Rukus, an employee of All Elite Wrestling, a newer brand of professional wrestling which aires on TNT, and asked if he could get a few wrestlers to send well wishes. What followed was unpredictably amazing. Almost the entire front and back roster reached out to send Wyatt their best wishes and support in a video compilation that was posted by Mike Rukus on his Facebook
Many different wrestlers from Chris Jericho, Cody Rhodes, Nila Rose, Matt Hardy, Young Bucks, Hall of Fame Famers Jim Ross & Billy Gunn, Brody Lee, Darby Allen, Private Party, Ring Announcer Justin Roberts and many more. They all came together to send positivity and strength to this little warrior. This has been an incredibly difficult time to the Orion family. The community has already come together so much for this family, this just shows how much heart there still is in professional wrestling. Stay #WyattStrong.
There is also a fundraiser to help Wyatt out you can donate to here.
