Two former WWE wrestlers announced on Tuesday they will donate all proceeds from a meet-and-greet this weekend to the victims of the deadly Waukesha, Wisconsin, parade massacre that killed six people and injured dozens more.

Wrestlers Adam Scherr, who said he and his Blizzard Brawl tag team partner ECIII will give the funds from their Blizzard Brawl appearance to the United for Waukesha Community Fund, described Wisconsin as "near and dear to my heart" and hopes "to raise a minimum" of $10,000, according to CBS 58.

"Just built a house in Neosho, Waukesha is my backyard," Scherr said. "I think this is an awesome opportunity to do some good in the community."


ECIII shared similar enthusiasm for Great Lakes Championship Wrestling's Blizzard Brawl, which will take place at the Waukesha County Expo Center, writing on social media the donations made will be for "a just cause."

Tickets to attend the Blizzard Brawl event sold out shortly after Scherr's announcement, with standing room-only tickets still available. Those unable to attend can purchase merchandise relating to the event, with all money going to the Waukesha victims.

Scherr and ECIII are not the only sports figures to offer their support to the Waukesha victims. J.J. Watt, defensive end for the NFL's Arizona Cardinals, reportedly offered on Nov. 23 to cover the funeral costs for those who died in the parade attack.

Darrell Brooks, the suspected driver of the SUV that plowed into a crowd of people at a Christmas parade in Waukesha earlier this month, faces six counts of intentional homicide in connection to the deaths of Jane Kulich, 52, Tamara Durand, 52, Wilhelm Hospel, 81, LeAnna Owen, 71, Virginia Sorenson, 79 and Jackson Sparks, 8. He is now being held on $5 million cash bail. Brooks is slated to appear back in court on Jan. 14, and if convicted of all charges, he faces up to life in prison.
