Buff Bagwell has a laundry list of charges that he racked up in recent memory. A jury trial date has been set for him to see his day in court. The former WCW star had his share of personal demons throughout the years, and he claims WWE denied his request to get help.
During his Rebuilding Buff podcast, he explained that WWE turned down his request to go to rehab. He then railed on the company for a bit as other were given multiple stints in rehab, but he was denied his first request.
“You ready for this one? The WWF turned me down on going to rehab. I want to put that in your head and let you run with that and just think about Scott Hall going 4 and 5 times, that crazy, crazy, crazy ass girl, that Dustin Rhodes was married to, that went 5 and 6 times. Not to mention Road Dogg… you kidding me? You think he went once? They went every time they could, I ask once and they deny me. They deny me, bro. Here I am trying to get better, I’ve come to them, on what they want me to do, which is get better, and it’s not like I’m off the chain.”
In case you’re wondering, Bagwell was not intoxicated at the time of this podcast. The Rebuilding Buff Twitter account sent out a blast to let fans know that he was sober, “I want to clear up some rumors that are going around based off the video that has been used by new sites, Buff was 100% not intoxicated during the podcast, I would never let Buff record or release anything if he was.”
WWE has paid for rehab to get a lot of Superstars on the right track. We’re not sure why they allegedly denied Bagwell’s request, but it is obviously still a sticking point.
Bagwell made headlines with his recent arrest, but then he spoke openly to TMZ as he explained it was all a misunderstanding. We’re hoping for the best as Bagwell continues on even though WWE allegedly denied his request to get professional help.
