Former WWF and WCW wrestler Virgil is asking fans to help him become the $1000000 Man.
The 53-year-old, born Michael “Mike” Jones, has set up a Go Fund Me page and has raised $30 in 17 days.
“Remember me? I am Mike Jones AKA Wrestling Superstar Virgil. I am the real deal. I have been around the world 30 times and my life has always been about the hustle,” he says.
“I started out in the old WWF as the bodyguard of the Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase and said to myself now it is now MY TIME to be the Millionaire. If you have watched wrestling than you know who I am. I will inspire you that million dollar dreams can come true.
“Show your love for your favorite wrestler ever by giving me $1, $10, $100, shit $1000 and make me a MILLIONAIRE. You could make this happen and I will forever be grateful. Everyday I hustle and now I am trying to show the world that this dog can be taught new tricks!”
Jones joined the WWF in 1987 before moving to WCW in 1996 until 2000. He was last seen on WWE TV in 2010, where he teamed with Ted DiBiase, Jr. to take on the team of the Big Show and Raw guest host Mark Feuerstein.
After Virgil got pinned and lost the match, DiBiase stuffed a $100 bill in Virgil’s mouth and walked out on him.
