Viva Van, an emerging young talent in the West Coast indies, has started a GoFundMe to assist a burgeoning wrestling school in Vietnam, in an effort to jumpstart a pro wrestling scene shared by other Asian neighbors like Japan and China. Los Angeles’ Viva Van, a student of the Santino Brothers School, has a deep connection to this project. Viva Van is Vietnamese-American and is hoping to help her culture get into the game.
Hey Wrestling World! ProWrestling is still very new in Vietnam. I want to start this new year by helping the very first ProWrestling school there get a ring. This is an important goal of mine to help my country. Help me by retweeting and donating. 🙏🏻 ❤️https://t.co/pjzQdYAauk

Viva Van’s GoFundMe is only for $2200 US, and is to help the Saigon Pro-Wrestling Club, a new school looking to launch the Vietnamese indie scene, purchase an actual wrestling ring. The school currently trains on flat mats.
Viva Van began her pro wrestling career in 2018 and has since gone on to work for West Coast promotions such as All Pro Wrestling (APW), PCW ULTRA, Hoodslam, Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, and more. She’s even wrestled for IMPACT Wrestling in 2019 on the CWFH/IMPACT special event Star Struck, facing Jessicka Havok.
Several Asian stars have already begun lending their support, such as Ring of Honor star Sumie Sakai and Hong Kong wrestler/promoter and former WWE Superstar Ho Ho Hun.
