It’s no surprise James Harris, better known to fans as WWE legend Kamala has suffered some hard times following his exit from the world of professional wrestling.

James Harris inside home (Bleacher Report)

Unfortunately Harris is experiencing trying times as his house is at risk of being taken due to taxes owed. Former WWE star Brian Blair setup a GoFundMe to raise money to pay the $12,750 debt owed to the State Of Mississippi.

Dear Friends, Many of you were entertained in the world of professional wrestling by”Kamala” the Ugandan Giant, aka James Harris. James is in desperate need right now to spare his home. If his taxes are not paid in full by April 15th, the county will take his home, as verified by the State of MS Tax collector. James “Kamala” Harris is a double amputee and must go to dialyses 3 times per week, for his diabetes. Even though James made decent money in the wrestling industry, there is proof that he often did not receive the same payoffs as many of his opponents. Why? Was it because he was a “Yes” man to the promoters? Maybe his race in some instances? Could it be his unbelievable kindness to everyone? I don’t know the answers but I do know that James, his wife and family need us all right now! I humbly implore you to donate whatever moves your heart, to save the Harris residence…it’s basically all that they have, other than a Ford Excursion with almost 400,000 miles on it and a lot of love in their hearts. My deepest gratitude, the Harris family’s deepest gratitude and may you be blessed for your kindness! Sincerely, B Brian Blair

The deadline was set for 4/15, but the state extended it to the end of the month. Today, Chris Jericho made a gracious donation of $5000 to ensure the goal was reached and Harris could keep his home.

Jericho posted “God bless you James! Thx for the years of entertaining!” on the GoFundMe page following his donation.

In 2017, Harris underwent life-saving emergency surgery to clear fluid from around his heart and lungs. He was put on life support for several days due to complications with the procedure.

Harris is a double amputee, and received dialysis 3 times a week. He spent years working for various promotions including AWA, Mid-South, and WWE.
