• Edge Reveals How Tracy Smothers Helped Him

As we noted earlier, former WWF/ WCW/ ECW wrestler Tracy Smothers passed away at the age of 58 after battling cancer for a long time. He had announced in November 2019 that he was battling Lymphoma.

WWE Hall of Famer Edge took to Twitter to reveal how Smothers helped him early on in his career.

Here’s what Edge wrote:

“Tracy Smothers took two young kids from Canada trying to “tour” the southern United States, with $1.50 a day to spend on food, saw a dilemma we put ourselves in to try and get experience, and took us under his wing. He knew we wanted it. Because of that, and his huge heart he drove us to make the next town so we could eat our next meal.

He found floors, couches or other talent who had spare space in their hotel rooms for us to sleep. On those drives he dispensed his knowledge. Always with a laugh and a twinkle in his eye. And we soaked it up.

He was a great man. He truly knew what paying it forward meant. I will miss him.”
