Anthony Mitrano, otherwise known to the local fans as “Italy’s Greatest Athlete" AJ Mitrano was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in September 2013. He's been struggling through aggressive chemotherapy, surgeries, and all those things entail for the past nine months. Anthony has been in and out of Tufts Medical Center in Boston while dealing with sudden infections, fever, pneumonia, and all the physical and emotional issues that go along with leukemia.


Anthony's sister has reached out to the wrestling fandom as a whole to help her brother financially as he goes through dealing with everything his health is handing him. We've seen other wrestlers step up and ask for help, and while they might have more famous names, if it wasn't for the indie wrestlers, we wouldn't have the WWE and all the wrestling we love watching each week. It's not easy to ask for help, but sometimes we all need to, so if you can help in any way, please do.
