Buff Bagwell enters rehab
Bagwell has been dealing with numerous substance abuse and legal issues over the years as well. The former WCW Tag Team Champion recently relapsed and entered into rehab, as revealed by WWE legend Diamon Dallas Page (DDP) in his new video on YouTube.
DDP revealed how he has been working with Marcus Bagwell over the last eight or nine months on a project that they have started. It’s a docu-series called “Change or Die.”
“Marcus didn’t have a weight loss problem. He was heavy at the time, but he didn’t have a weight loss problem. He didn’t have borderline diabetes. What he had was an addiction. An addiction that he could mask really well. And most people who have addictions can do that.
“Over this period, had some ups and downs. And for the most part, he was doing really well. But a lot of times, with addiction, it has everything to do with the people you hang out most with. And when he’s with us, like our whole force is about positive reinforcement, you know, a place you can be safe.
DDP revealed that Bagwell had a relapse recently and he has now entered a rehab facility:
The former WCW star had previously mentioned that WWE had turned him down for rehab. Buff Bagwell had previously spoken with the Who The Fook Are These Guys?! podcast about how he was turned down when he tried to enter WWE’s rehab program. It was something that Bagwell had wanted to do voluntarily, but he was not able to do so.
