Buff Bagwell made a name for himself in WCW before venturing off to WWE, where he didn’t really get to do much at all. Unfortunately, he is more well-known for his personal demons, especially concerning substance abuse and more. Now it appears Bagwell has been doing pretty well while he remains sober.

WWE also has a policy of helping former talent go through rehab, if they ever require it. Buff Bagwell had substance abuse issues as well. However, Bagwell previously said that WWE rejected his request for rehab.

Buff Bagwell got fans worried after he was arrested for speeding and driving under the influence of drugs. Bagwell clarified that the arrest was from an offence committed years ago.

While speaking on The Snake Pit podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jake Roberts talked about Buff Bagwell’s condition as of late. Roberts revealed that he is doing pretty well and is maintaining his sobriety.


“He’s doing pretty well, man. He’s hanging and banging, and he’s staying clean, staying sober. And he’s taking care of some court stuff, some of the stuff that helped get you there. When you’re a bad boy, you gotta suffer the consequences, and he’s taking care of those consequences now. He’s not b****ing about it, he’s just doing it.”

Buff Bagwell is also almost a year into his sobriety and continues to keep walking on the right path no matter what, as he is certainly a source of inspiration for those who were in similar situations.
