Wrestling for Charity

Smackdown publisher THQ auctions special WWF merch to help the Make-A-Wish foundation

Charity in the name of the WWF? You could be forgiven for thinking "World Wildlife Fund" at this point, but as you will have guessed, it's actually those wily sports entertainers at the World Wrestling Federation to whom I am referring. THQ, publisher of the ever-popular WWF Smackdown: Just Bring It!, plans to auction off a bundle of goodies tonight through online auctioneer eBay, with proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish foundation, a charity that aims to help needy children fulfil their dreams. Apart from a PlayStation 2, signed by WWF wrestler Rikishi, and a copy of the game, the winner will also receive a limited edition figurine of The Rock and a T-shirt of the game. The pièce de resistance, though, is a pair of tickets for the upcoming "Insurrextion" event taking place next Saturday, 4th May at Wembley Arena. Anybody interested in helping the Make-A-Wish foundation and getting to the sold-out Insurrextion event, featuring wrestlers like The Undertaker, Trish Stratus and Stone Cold Steve Austin, should head over to eBay, where the auction has just gone live.
