UPDATE x 2: Jesse Sorensen has revealed on Twitter that he did not write a post in which he said that TNA President Dixie Carter broke promises she made to him. He claims his GoFundMe donation site put the post up on Tuesday.
He wrote: “Just to be clear it was not me that posted the donation site or set it up. I’m thankful for my time at TNA & for the opportunities given. This whole donation page thing has gotten way out of hand the page was made my a concerned friend of mine because I had planned on dropping out of my competition. I personally never asked for anything from anyone but do appreciate the help of a friend & the fans who donated to it.”
UPDATE: Jesse Sorensen surpassed the $600 he was hoping to raise for help with a bodybuilding contest. Speaking of Sorensen, he posted the following to his Facebook page…
“Although I am very appreciative of the time of small fame I was given. I have realized that what’s important in life isn’t being a “superstar” or being famous. It’s about having Real friends & family that support you no matter what you’ve been thru & care about you no matter what you do in life. Thank you to every one of y’all that support me. I’m always going to be that small town kid that was raised right & still believe that someone’s word is their bond. I look very forward to moving on with positivity & look forward to seeing what life brings my way.”
ORIGINAL: Jesse (Jessy) Sorenson has accused TNA of breaking promises to him following his release today. Sorenson posted a fundraising campaign to GoFundMe.com trying to raise $600 for the Hurricane Bay bodybuilding show in Tampa, Florida on October 5th, stating that he is unable to pay for the show due to his release. Sorenson posted the following in the campaign:
My name is Jessy Sorensen(Jesse Sorensen) I am a former professional wrestler for TNA Impact Wrestling seen every thursday night on SpikeTV. On Feb.12th 2012 during a live match on pay per view vs Zema Ion I suffered a sever neck injury sustaining a broke C-1 vertebrae & herniated C-5 & C-6. After a long recovery process & being promised by the President of TNA Impact Wrestling TNA Dixie Carter I would always have a job with her company, I recently was released from my current contract & shown that those promises were false. During my time away from the ring I decided to pursue bodybuilding & have been prepping for the Hurricane Bay bodybuilding show in Tampa, FL on Oct.5th,2013 but now due to my recent released I will have to drop out of my show. A friend of mine told me about this site and if anyone would like to help and contribute I would be so grateful and appreciate any donations. Thanks and hopefully I can find something I love just as much as I did Wrestling.
Thus far he has raised $260.
