Bobby Eaton sadly passed away and the pro wrestling world was in mourning. The 62-year-old legend meant a lot to so many people around the planet. A GoFundMe was opened up and it smashed its goal in no time.

As of this writing, the GoFundMe for Eaton was opened three hours ago. They have already smashed their $10,000 goal by raising $12,553 toward that goal. You can find the summary description below:

Hi everyone my name is Rodney Freeman. Matt Sigmon, Kerry Morton and myself have set this up to raise money for Bobby Eatons funeral costs. Bobby like most former pro wrestlers passed away with little to nothing. He had no insurance and no money to help with anything like this. His death was completely unexpected. Bobby Eaton was one half of the Midnight Express and performed all over the world during the 80’s and 90’s. All the money raised will go directly to his daughter Taryn Priscilla Eaton. We will update this page accordingly over the next couple days. Thank you. 

Chris Jericho donated $5,000, but he was not alone Chris Gillman, Chase Owens, and Cody Rhodes all chipped in $500 each. Tons of fans are still donating whatever they can. Obviously, the Eaton Family is going through a very tough time right now, and this GoFundMe is likely to held tremendously.
