Ex-wrestler seeks help after devastating Louisiana flood
The recent rainfall and flooding has affected thousands in and around Baton Rouge, La.
One of the folks who was hit was George Gray, formerly known as the One Man Gang and Akeem during his career in professional wrestling.
Gray posted photos on a gofundme account showing the toll the storm took on his house.
Hi, i’m The One Man Gang aka Akeem aka George Gray. Recently, as many of you know, The Great Flood of ’16 came and smashed into Southern Louisiana where our family home for 25 years in Central, LA received 4′ of water inside it. Unfortunately I wasn’t there to do a 747 Splash and send that water back up the street crying for its momma. Thankfully though our son was house sitting while I was in Georgia doing a meet n greet signing & was able to save all 8 cats, 2 dogs & a lizard. However almost everything my wife & I ever owned was ruined. All the beds, couches, appliances, electronics, clothes, basically everything in the entire house was destroyed while submerged for 3 days. A lifetime of wrestling memorabilia, wrestling videos & family albums were among the most irreplaceable. Like most in our area FEMA had declared our neighborhood a no flood zone and like most we didn’t have flood insurance. Our home insurance said they cover zero zip nada of the damages. Any help you can give to get us back on our feet & our home livable again would be most appreciated. Thanks for your support.
Here’s some of the memories Gray created while in the ring.
