Make Freight Train's dream come true! Documentary on $5 Wrestling's Freight Train and his dream trip to England!

About this project

Freight Train has been part of the Highspots family since the beginning of $5 Wrestling. He's the most charismatic and loveable characters in $5 Wrestling history. 
He works as a dishwasher making minimum wage in Charlotte, NC and has NEVER left the United States. We would like to make his dream of seeing England a reality and are helping him, through group funding. 
100% of all money collected will go towards Freight Train and Jake Manning's plane tickets and hotel and travel fees to England. We will film everything and create a documentary on this special individual, Charles Stevenson. We'll interview his family and friends and learn why he's just a little more special than the rest of us. 
Any money that exceeds the cost of traveling to England will be given directly to Freight Train as a gift.

Risks and challenges

The risks involved in this project is Freight Train scheduling and work involved in the details of the trip itself. We have already started the process of obtaining a passport for Freight Train and he should receive that in about a month. Then we will need to plan the actual days for the trip and schedule his vacation from his day job.

We already have all the necessary equipment to film, edit, and produce the content and rewards for this project.
