Lince Dorado Speaks About His Grandfather and the GoFundMe Campaign
Lince then started a GoFundMe campaign for his grandmother and the funeral costs. His grandmother will have nobody to help her now that her husband is no longer there.
In the campaign, it is stated that Barbot lost his insurance policy in 2020 after keeping it for around 20 years. The goal of the campaign is to raise $25,000. Lince wrote on the GoFundMe page, “Hi guys. You all know me as Lince Dorado from WWE, but to this man, I was Tuto.
I loved this man with all my heart as if he was my own father. He helped raise me, show me discipline, loved me, and showed me my passion today, wrestling/lucha libre. Without him and my grandmother, I would not have been where I am at.
Those of you who really truly know me, know I am usually a fun guy to be around, but I am heartbroken and devastated by this news. It even hurts me more to know I feel helpless not being able to help out the way I want to!
But, I promised one thing to him many years ago, my grandmother will be ok and I will take care of her in and every way I can. Here’s my message and promise to you, for anyone that donates any amount, I will personally set up a ZOOM meeting thank you personally from my family to you.
Our family is setting this GOFUNDME up to pay for all his funeral cost and to set my grandmother up until I can catch up here with her everyday expenses that are left behind with my grandfathers passing. If there was more I can give you, I would. I thank you and love you all! I love you, grandpa”.
