There was a worry in early April that Kamala, a veteran of WWE and the wrestling industry, was at risk of losing his home to the Government after owing the state of Mississippi over $12,000 in property tax. Kamala, of course, has gone through a tremendous amount of personal strife in recent years and even lost both of his legs to diabetes.
According to an update from B Brian Blair, the president and CEO of the Cauliflower Alley Club, the house has been saved after he and Mark Henry set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money. Thanks to a generous last-second donation from Chris Jericho and the help from many fans, everything worked out in the end,
You all have been “God Sent,” your support for James “Kamala” Harris will never be forgotten and we will thank every one of you personally, as time allows. As you can see, because of your generosity, we have exceeded the Harris family’s eminent needs…this is amazing!
We want to officially end this campaign as of now (Midnight April 21st), and once again cannot thank you all enough! Both the MS State and County tax assessors will be paid in full, and the remainder will stay with the James “Kamala” Harris family to fix their Ford Excursion with almost 400,000 miles on it. FYI, since the Harris family will have paid their state taxes, they will now be able to file an exemption and never have property taxes again (age 65, per MS law, however, this cannot be done if you owe the state $)…this is a great law and you may want to remind your state representatives to follow the lead of the MS Congress, if your state does not allow this!
On behalf of James “Kamala” Harris, Mark Henry and me, may you be blessed for your kindness,”
“B Brian Blair”
Jericho would donate a very generous $5,000 to the cause when he heard about it which was incredibly helpful as the April 15th deadline has arrived without enough money raised.
Jericho has done a lot of good work throughout his career in the community and out of his own pocket. It isn’t surprising to see that he once again gave to a cause that he deemed worthwhile.
