Former TNA star Jesse Sorensen has started a new online fundraiser on Gofundme.com where he criticizes TNA President Dixie Carter for promising him he would always have a job with the company after suffering serious neck injury in 2012 at a PPV event.
Sorensen was officially released by TNA on Tuesday. His statement reads as follows.
“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.”
Sorensen is looking to raise $600 to help fund a bodybuilding competition in Tampa this October that he is hoping to be part of.
