This week on MLW’s Konnan Show presented by Masked Republic’s LuchaShop.com, Konnan had a lot to say about the erratic nature of many of wrestling’s top stars over the years. He even revealed for the first time that he himself suffers from Manic Depressive Disorder.

“When I was 16 years old, I had gotten arrested and they sent me to a psychologist to see what my problem was. They said that I was a manic depressive and I got scared because I heard the word ‘manic.’ What am I, a maniac or something? But that would happen to me. Sometimes I would go into these deep funks of depression where I just didn’t want to talk to anybody or do anything. I didn’t want to be around anybody, but then I would have these super euphoric highs where I just wanted to talk to everybody and I was in a really crazy mode.”

“I would go between these two things and I remember talking to Raven, who is another very creative guy and he used to tell me to take Zoloft. He said it was an antidepressant. So I would take it, but I think I wouldn’t take enough or I wouldn’t take it long enough.”

MLW’s Konnan Show is available on MLW.com, iTunes and syndicated by Stitcher.com.

    @theMark

    HAHA check it out you think you can spell

  • WrestlingTrunks

    TheMark, grow up.

    I think a lot of superstars are suffering from some sort of depression or disorder, it’s a shame that we only really learn about it when it’s too late. We don’t know that any of the current WWE roster are suffering but afraid to tell anyone in case it effects their spot on the roster? It’s a harsh reality that I think needs to be addressed. I hope that the talent gets the help it needs as it happens, not when it’s too late (e.g rehab).
