Buff Bagwell made name for himself in WCW, where he found moderate success as part of the mid-card scene. Bagwell eventually debuted in WWE, where he really did not get to do much at all. Bagwell also has a history of substance abuse problems, among other things. This has made fans concerned for his well-being, for a good reason. While things were going well for him, it appears Bagwell was recently arrested for speeding and DUI.

WWE also has a policy of helping former talent go through rehab, should they need it. Buff Bagwell had substance abuse issues as well. In fact, Bagwell previously said that WWE rejected his request for rehab.

In fact, last year, Buff Bagwell revealed that he had crossed over 100 days of sobriety. Naturally, fans were elated at this positive level of development for the pro wrestling veteran.

Unfortunately, things have not been going well for Buff Bagwell as he was arrested earlier this month. The former WCW and WWE star was charged with speeding and driving under the influence of drugs.


In 2021, Buff Bagwell started a podcast called “Rebuilding Buff.” The podcast ran into some controversy after the former star mentioned that WWE had turned him down for rehab. It is certainly sad to see Bagwell relapsing like this and we hope he gets the necessary help.
