Injured Wrestler Wants People To Buy Him A PS4 To Help Recovery

Injured Wrestler Wants People to Buy Him a PS4 to Help Recovery

This is probably a joke. Or maybe a sad reality. But it would make a great wrestling storyline.

The man known in Scottish wrestling circles as Red Lightning is not in prime shape anymore. What Andrew Wason needs to get back to peak form, so he says, is a PS4. So he started up a crowdfunding campaign asking people to help buy him one:

Before I got fat I was one of the most sought after performers on the Scottish Wrestling circuit. People love to hate me. Although I am currently trying to get fit again I feel that my hand eye co-ordination is lacking due to the out-of-date gaming hardware I have.

Being injured and slightly chubby means I get dregs of work in Wrestling now and can't fund my gaming habits because the money I do make gets spent on drugs of all kind

What makes Red Lightning's campaign so bizarre and fascinating to me is that it's somewhere between a depressing real-life cry for attention and a goofy storyline for his bad-guy wrestling character.

Red Lightning isn't a household name like Hulk Hogan John Cena or CM Punk, though. If Daniel Bryan sent out a plea to fans to get him a PS4, it'd probably happen in no time flat. This guy? Who knows?

    Daniel Bryan's recovery can be fixed with a PS4 ? where do I donate ? tell me ?

      I doubt he'd need one. If I was married to Brie Bella I wouldn't need a gaming system ever again.

    Ah, he will only sell it to buy more drugs.

      Fuck him buy me one!

      I thought that was hilarious "because the money I do make gets spent on drugs of all kind" I mean at least he's honest but not really giving me the urge to support him.

    I stubbed my toe the other day.........I think I might need someone to give me a high end PC to aid my recovery.....

      You need to become a wrestler first though! And promise to answer 5 questions!

    As a freestyle wrestler - albeit it an amateur one - I really wish exhibition wrestling would drop the wrestling tag. It resembles wrestling as much as The Only Way is Essex resembles reality.

    On the other hand, I've lost my mouthguard, so perhaps we can have a whiparound to pre-order Smash Bros for me?

    I'm a former Australian Wrestler with back and knee problems... Can I have a 3DS? :P The street passes will get me to walk more so i can overcome my knee problems.

    I am stuck at home with a cold, a mere PS3 and flat screen TV. I need a,PS4 to recover from the cold.

    I'm contemplating becoming a wrestler one day and am overweight. What I need people to do is give me money for a PS4 so I can sit around gaming all day to get ready for my wrestling debut.

    I have been to a Nickelback concert, buy me a PS4 to aid my recovery
