WWE news: Ricochet appeals for help from wrestling fans after his mother's house burned down

WRESTLING star Ricochet is appealing for help after his mother's house recently burned down.

The high-flying superstar, who was this week officially confirmed as part of Monday Night Raw’s roster, has set-up a GoFundMe page after the fire devastated his family.

And the 30-year-old, real name Trevor Mann, is hoping the WWE Universe can help support his mom, her boyfriend and his two children as they attempt to get back on their feet after losing their home.


Ricochet, writing on the GoFundMe page, said: “Monday afternoon I found out that my mom came home from the theatre to find her house engulfed in flames.

“Luckily my mom, her boyfriend and his two boys are all okay, but devastated from losing all of the memories that were in this house. Not only memories that they have made together, but from me and my brothers childhood, my son growing up and everything in between.”

The former NXT North American Champion continued: “I’ve never done a Gofundme before and wouldn’t be doing this one right now if I didn’t feel it necessary in this crucial situation, but I knew I wanted to do something that could take this horrible negative and possibly turn it into something positive for them.

“If you are able to donate anything at all it will be greatly appreciated. If you are not able to donate, your love and support will be just as appreciated.

“This is something I want to do to show my mom that she is not alone in this and that we are all here for them in their time of need. Thank you all so very much.”


The goal was set at just a dollar to start with, with the total now up to £7,353 at the time of publication.

Ricochet has donated over £1,500 himself.

The devastating personal blow comes at an exciting time for the superstar inside the squared-circle.

After joining NXT last year, he captured gold by defeating Adam Cole before he and Aleister Black made their main roster debuts in February.

He followed that up with appearances at both NXT Takeover: Brooklyn and WrestleMania before he was officially announced as a member of the Raw team.
