Who is Wrestlethon...

We are a group of good friends who use our love of wrestling and video games to give back! Learn more about us on the right side of the page. 

 

Wrestlethon occurs every year, and 2019 will mark our sixth year to host this fundraising event. We have raised over $14,000 for charities, including Child's Play Charity and we are proud and honored to be able to do so.

 

Ultimately, we are here to raise money for charity. Without our awesome Twitch community and their support, Wrestlethon would not be nearly as successful as it is today.

Wrestlethon FAQs 

I can't donate, is there anything I can do to help?

Of course! We always need help getting the word out about this event.  Please help us by spreading the word out on Twitter, Facebook, other social media sites and to everyone you see.  During the event, you can use the SHARE feature on the Twitch page and help spread the word!
Also let us know how we are doing. We know this event is not perfect and we would love to hear what we can do to make it better. If you have any ideas, please let us know.

Are you affiliated with WWE or any other wrestling promotion?

Wrestlethon is a fundraising event run by fans who love video games and wrestling. We are not affiliated with WWE or any other wrestling promotion.

 

Are you affiliated with Child's Play Charity?

We are not affiliated With Child's Play Charity but the donations do go directly to them.

 

Do you have a press release for this event I can use?

Please email us at admin@wrestlethon.com and we will be happy to provide information.

 

Where do the donations go?

As you will probably hear us say many times during the  stream, we do this 'For the kids' so 100% of all money that is raised during this event will go directly to the charity. We do not handle any part of your donation as a special link set up will accept your donation and tie it back to our event. That will help us track how much we have raised throughout the weekend. Thank you so much for your support. CLICK HERE to visit our fundraiser page.

 

Where are you guys located?

We are in Texas, USA.

 

How did this idea start?

Wrestlethon is the vision of Jake Whitco. He wanted to combine two of his favorite things: wrestling and video games, into something that could make a difference. With everyone’s help, Wrestlethon has turned into a live stream fundraising event on Twitch.tv supporting gamer-backed causes, like Child's Play and Extra Life.

 

Does Sheamus Ruin Everything?

Yes, Yes he does.
