The pro wrestling world sees GoFundMe crowdfunding pages start all the time. Those pages are created by people who are going through a difficult time and they must rely on fans for help. Apparently, WWE isn’t a fan of that idea.

Baron Corbin is out of luck on SmackDown and he just started his own GoFundMe page. Of course, Corbin’s page isn’t accepting actual money from fans. It was a bit on SmackDown that caused a lot of fans to wonder what Baron Corbin’s net worth really is. Click here for that net worth info.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer brought up Corbin’s new angle and how it might stem from a real feeling that is kept backstage in WWE.

“I don’t think they like the idea of wrestlers doing GoFundMe accounts with the idea that he cheapens wrestling, and of course, if they took better care of their wrestlers, at least the ones who wrestle for them, wouldn’t have to have that issue.”

It seems that Baron Corbin’s little CorbinFundMe bit was a possible knock on pro wrestlers starting GoFundMe pages in the first place. The excellent point was also made that former WWE Superstars should really have to go the GoFundMe way, because WWE could help them out.
