Kamala is not doing well

Very interesting and touching article, although I have to agree with the note of skepticism that Hogan wouldn't take care of one of his biggest opponents.  Those Kamala matches drew like gangbusters because everyone instantly bought him as a threat and they could milk it for months around the horn.  You can say a lot of things about Vince and Hogan at that time, but they always did honest business with guys who were making them box office.  

Kamala

I still find it mind-boggling that someone from WWE hasn't just stepped up and paid the 10,000 or whatever it would cost to get the second leg removed.  They shell out ridiculous amounts of money for their drug-addicted ex-employees and millions for Linda's campaign, the least they could for the poor guy is pay for his surgery. That would be a much better PR move than their endless Twitter and self-congratulatory bullying campaigns would be.  

Kamala fundraiser

RD and Scott,
Can you post this to WrestleCrap and your blog, respectively? It's a post on CRZ's The W message board about a Kamala shoot DVD where the proceeds are going to help him out with medical bills and cost of living. He's going through a tough time. I'm not associated with it in any way, I just wanted to see the guy get some money because it seems like he needs it. Thanks.

Surprised that someone in WWE hasn't picked up the bill, actually.
