Jack Zaler Tribute Wrestling Event
The Watering Bowl - 5411 Leetsdale Dr, Denver, CO
Jack Zaler was one of the most popular pro-wrestlers in Colorado. He traveled the country, and was seen on WWE at one point in his career. His death in January of 2014 was a shock to his friends and fans, and left a hole that could never be filled by anyone else. It's a story I'm sure you've heard many times: that he was always smiling and doing everything he could to make everyone laugh, so very few people knew about his battle with depression.
The purpose of the event is to celebrate the life of a man who was loved by many, including former WWE star Matt Sydal (who is working pro-bono in memory of his friend). It is equally important for this event to raise awareness of depression in the wrestling world, hopefully leading both performers and fans to recognize the signs of depression, and to know it's okay to seek treatment.
