PLATTSBURGH - When TNA Wrestling came to town recently, the crowd went wild. And, when professional wrestler Robbie E. came to town, he had the chance to meet a group of ladies who he couldn't resist seeing again.
John LaHart, who promotes TNA Wrestling events locally with partner Gary Hathaway, said Robert "Robbie E." Strauss had the chance to meet with Aeropstale's Angels, one of several teams signed up to participate in the upcoming Relay for Life at the Clinton County Fairgrounds in Morrisonville.
"We talked at the event about Robbie coming back up to help the girls raise money for Relay for Life and he was all for it. He just wanted to confirm that he could come back and when he found out he could, he was more than happy to," said LaHart.
"It means a lot to me, bro," said Robbie E. "Helping out with something like this is one of the great things I get to do with my profession, man."
Though Robbie E. said he has never had anyone in his life directly affected by cancer, helping those who have is important to him.
"I do though feel for anyone that has to go through something like this and praise how strong and positive they are," he said, adding he's looking forward to his return to the area for the event that benefits the AmericanCancer Society. "This is part of why I love what I do ... Getting the chance to help out with things like this. It's an honor."
Robbie E. will return Friday, Sept. 17, to help man a Relay for Life booth for the Aeropostale Angels, a team consisting of employees of the Champlain Centre store and their friends.
Rachel Guyton, one of the team's members, was excited to learn Robbie E. was coming back.
