In Video: Dawn Marie Issues Video Statement on Recent Wrestler’s Rescue Controversy

Former WWE and ECW star Dawn Marie has issued a video statement to discuss some of the recent controversies surrounding her charity, Wrestler’s Rescue.

The charity recently came under fire from former WWE star Kamala, who alleged that Wrestler’s Rescue had been collecting donations on his behalf but had not sent him any payments, a claim that Dawn and Wrestler’s Rescue deny.

Kamala had both of his legs amputated due to complicates with diabetes.

    Dawn Marie is the lowest form of scum that i ever saw.in this video,you could just see that she is just simply covering her ass on the way she stiffed late former wrestlers and former WWE employees.i was friends with one of the late people she stiffed whom she mentioned,a former WWE ring announcer and wrestling radio host from BlogTalkRadio Michael Porter.

      So why didn’t he send the paperwork to her?

  • Kessuki

    she doesnt come across with a high IQ but i believe that her intentions for helping these wrestlers is completely geniuine. more fool me you may think but there is no evidence to otherwise suggest any wrongdoing by her or wrestlers rescue. so kamala got the cheque a day or two late and now has a hump about it – any normal person would have been grateful irregardless of the slight delay. TeamDawn!

    i completely agree with her that she should help those with medical bills first and foremost as they are in a life-death situation. i personally would refuse to help the person with the rent problem unless they are a wrestler that puts his body on the line but she has taken a chance on helping him but if the guy cant send his documentation to the organisation then it cant move forward can it, oh and not to mention a smear campaign because she couldnt help him? how bitter!

    ppl seem to forget the wrestlers she has helped and will continue throwing accusations at her in the hope they stick, she needs to continue the good work, take legal action and let that do the talking.

      I agree with you. It seems Dawn has had a lot if stress since she started wrestler’s rescue and a lot of people would have walked away from rom it yet she sticks at it! Seems as if she really does wanna help these guys.

    Loved the Dawn Marie character but as a person …. this is a scam you would be a fool not to see it all signs points to scam and if its not then she has no idea what she is doing and is not fit to run this sort of organization. How many reports have we heard of this being a scam too many people saying the same thing is not a coincidence

  • PeriodPalace

    not trynna be douchy but im just gonna say it as everyone else is thinking it, she gained a lot of weight

    • javiousmckenzie

      SMH i mean child birth and being a stay at home mom willl do that to you

    • Kessuki

      she had a kid not too long ago.

      you definitely sounded douchy there, awesome for you

    • FilmJenkins

      well it looks sexy on her.

    I want to believe her, I REALLY do, but I can’t. There’s too many other people saying that this is a scam over the last two years and when even her friends are saying it’s a scam. I really hope this is resolved soon, even if the authorities need to get involved.

    • unscripted & flawless

      Pretty much the same thing I said when I saw this video. I want to believe her because I feel like she wants to prove that she’s not lying, but something says she’s just trying to keep her reputation solid so her program doesn’t go down the drains for whatever reason. I just don’t see why anyone else on Dawn’s side isn’t speaking out or more proof isn’t being presented. Right now it’s just boiling down to he said, she said.

      Wrestling itself is a shady business itself, so I don’t know why she would even start such a foundation – whether her intentions were for good or not, something like this was inevitable to happen because the wrestling world is full of dirty, shady, evil people.

  • YouCanLookButYouCan’tTouch

    I honestly thought she was about to cry.Poor thing : / For someone to ask for money,return it,and then say she never gave them money is a slap in the face.I hope that she doesn’t let Kamala’s comments about here get to her.Her running an organization that helps wrestlers with medical stuff shows how big of a heart she has.As long as she knows that she’s doing a good job and that what she’s doing is out of good faith,that’s all that matters.Keep up the good work Dawn : )

  • JJ

    I remember first hearing about how Dawn was setting out to help former wrestlers with medical problems, and thinking how generous that sounded and what a good person she seemed.

    Guess that never worked out.

    What a shame the Wrestlers Rescue has turned out to be one of the sleaziest organisations in the wrestling business (one of the sleaziest in the WRESTLING business!!). With all the stuff piling up about them, you’d be a fool to give them a penny. Such a shame.

    I don’t know what is going on with Dawn, whether the people around her are lying to her or influencing her, but I never thought she’d be involved in something as crooked as this. She’s ruining her reputation with fellow wrestlers she’s known for years, and now with fans.

    Sad that something so bad comes from such a nice idea.

  • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

    i don’t know what i believe and i guess it doesn’t really matter as none of it affects me.

    if what she says is true, then i hope it all gets cleared up for her asap.

  • redsandman99

    I really don’t know what to believe. Wrestling is indeed the shadiest of buisinesses ever so either side could be lying, though I’ve heard a lot more coming out against her as opposed to defending her….so I don’t know.

  • MickieJamesFan07

    I’ve never had a problem with Dawn Marie until now. That woman is a lying piece of shit. She should be ashamed of herself.

  • DJsol

    Missy Hyatt is the secretary…………………..

    • http://missyhyatt.net DJ

      Missy helped Dawn file the papers for the non-profit, and that’s it. She doesn’t have anything to do with Wrestler’s Rescue & hasn’t for quite a while.

  • Mikas

    If the accusations came from the ‘dirtsheets’ it would it be easy to believe Dawn. But the accusations come from her own collegues, people she worked with in the past. So something must be wrong here. There have been several incidents already where Wrestler’s Rescue was involved.

    A big problem is that there is no transparency on how much money comes in, and where that money goes to. Let’s assume she DID send Kamala a check. How do we know that wasnt just 10% of the money she recieved in total?

  • xX-Zoey-Sky-Xx

    Ok so here’s what I’m thinking… Is their any proof of her scamming them? What’s to say that Dawn sent them the money, they got it and decide to say she never sent it? But at the same time what ‘s to say she never sent it in the first place? I’m staying neutral in all of this. Until proof is shown that Dawn has actually scammed people, I’ll say nothing ill against her. There is a saying guys “Innocent Until Proven Guilty”

    • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

      i agree with you. in this case it is a lot easier to claim somebody is not doing something than it is to prove somebody did. and of course people jump on the ‘dawn marie is a scam artist’ stuff as it makes for better gossip than if she wasn’t.. and which wrestling fan doesn’t love their gossip? lol. it’s just a load of ‘he said, she said’ at this point. =/

      • xX-Zoey-Sky-Xx

        Exactly, cos thats all their is at this moment. Like I said, until there is proof of her scamming, we should leave her well enough alone, but that said, Dawn isnt the only person to run the charity, what if someone working for her is doing it and she’s none the wiser.

  • bikini kill

    I’m surprised it doesn’t shock me at how gullible people are.
    Its kamala and the blue meanie…

    And if you do your homework one of the guys badmouthing her wanted rent assistance. Initially she said no bc her company is about healthcare but she decided to try and help. She told him shed help him out if he sent her a landlord verification form and he never did.

    She isn’t an atm machine or anothet type of ssi for retired wrestlers. She puts all her time and efort into auctioning off these donated items from wrestlers.

    She should be able to give herself a salary and help people. She has to make a living. Leave dawn alone. She’s NO tammy or missy hyatt.

    • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

      “She puts all her time and efort into auctioning off these donated items from wrestlers.”

      if it was a con, she sure puts a lot of effort into it, especially when after having to split the money with her cohorts there probably isn’t that much earned =/ so if it was an elaborate scam ran by her, the gain just doesn’t seem worth it to me.. which makes me believe these rumours aren’t true.

      ps. kathleen hanna <3 =)

      • bikini kill

        I’m shocked to find another kh fan on here! So excited she brought julie ruin back

  • http://cmpunkscrazychick.tumblr.com xoxoRKOxoxo

    I acctually believe her call me crazy but I think she’s doing good on helping former wrestlers I hope she keeps it up!!

  • Melissa K Killer 2010

    I support Dawn in this time because she is doing something good for the wrestlers just because she can’t help everyone out then you bash her that not right she giving you facts and showed you signed check so back off her. and who care if Missy Hyatt is the secretary it a great program for retired wrestlers!!

    Keep up the Great Work Dawn!!!

  • Mariah Dynamite

    Wrestling is a con game. Always has been and always will be. Are people REALLY surprised by this? I am not surprised someone didn’t think of this soon actually as its a great con/scheme by Dawn Marie. Raise money, then cite overhead charges, and walk away with the loot. Anyone who thinks this isn’t anything more then a con…well…I got a bridge to sell you.

    • Melissa K Killer 2010

      I can’t force anyone to read it but the facts are here.

      http://www.wrestlersrescue.org/

      it up to you to read it.

      at least someone cares about retired wrestlers!

      Thank You
      Dawn!!!

  • AfroJack

    Dawn is telling the truth, and to those calling her disgusting names, how about you fuckin prove otherwise?? oh so because Kamala said so then it must be true? Yeah of course many of you sad losers believe anything you read online because you lack the ability to think for yourselves.

  • Truth Seeker

    Looks like there no more wrestlersrescue.org now. So did Dawn “the thief” Marie shut it down now?
