Wrestling fans hate David Arquette for what they cosinder devaluing and destroying the reputation of the WCW championship.... But what some Fans dont know is David Arquette is a huge fan of wrestling and he hated the idea of becoming WCW World champion as much as all of us. He thought it was Disrespectful to all the wrestler that work hard Day in and Day out and put their bodies on the line to win that World title and all the Greats that Held it before him and held the title with such pride..... So feeling guilty about it, David Arquette donated all his money he made durring his time in WCW to the Brian Pillman fund to help out Pillmans family after his death... Very Classy move by MR Arquette.

Shawn Hearing that went straight to the woman and wrote her a check for the mortage and paid it off in full... I forget the ammount, wheter it was 20k or 50k but it was a large ammount.

Wade Boggs and Henning were Hunting, Boggs got his leg caught in a barbed wire fence behind a tree and there was no one around, So he told Henning to go get help he was bleeding to bad... in the Words of Boggs, Henning ripped the barbed wire with his bare hands, Then Boggs told him he cant walk to the truck that was almost a mile away, so he told henning to come back for him.

The doctor told Boggs if Henning didnt rip the barbed wire and carry him to the truck Boggs would of bleed to death..... Boggs calls Henning his guardian Angel.

I know its his family, and we all like to think if we were faced with the situation we do the same thing, God forbid we ever be in his shoes but he did a bold move by ending his Wrestling career to Donate hid Kidney to His Big Brother...... Its a moving act of kindness that has alot of self sacrfice in it..... alot of people compared Sonny siaki to the Rock, and said he would become a Star in Wrestling, he didnt make it that big as he thought but he was on his way, he was in WWE devolpment but really couldnt put all in cause of his family problems.... I dont know much about Siakis career but this was a selfless Great act by a Seemingly Great guy.
