Earlier today, we told you how former WWE superstar Sean "X-Pac" Waltman was reportedly arrested for trying to bring weed and meth through customs at LAX airport, which prevented him from making his flight to the UK to appear at an IPW wrestling event, which had resulted in him being reported "missing" over the weekend.
Waltman appeared on podcast The Tomorrow Show to talk about the incident, along with Lula, the abused dog he's been taking care of:
"I'm alive and well. I'm mentally strong and healthy as ever. It's a long story what happened, and I'm gonna tell it on my show on Monday," X-Pac said of why he was missing. "It's a long, long drawn out story."
"I'd rather talk about it on Wednesday," Waltman said when pressed for details. "I'm just fine though. I'm very sorry for everyone that was concerned. What a lot of people were thinking, thank god it's not the case. Well, part of it's not."
Waltman recounted the story of how he became acquainted with his new furry friend: "Last Thursday, we were coming back from Home Depot and poor little Lula wandered out into Balboa Avenue and almost got hit. She was just wandering around delirious – you know, her jaw's broken. She'll never be able to close her mouth again. He tongue was completely caked with stuff. You could tell she hadn't had any water in I don't know long. She was really scared. I haven't cried that hard in a long time. She's happy now, and that's all that counts." The dog was apparently kept in a backyard to pump out puppies for profit.
When the host mentioned that X-Pac's friends like Kevin Nash were reaching out to him, X-Pac responded: "I can't even respond to them all yet. Mainly, I have a ton of people that give a shit about me. It's amazing. But that doesn't mean you want to keep worrying them. My past, obviously, makes people go 'oh my god,' and they come to assumptions and I totally get it. Even once I tell my story, a lot of people aren't going to believe it. That's how it goes when you have a history."
"One of the guys that reached out big time was [SiriusXM Radio Host and Wrestling Podcaster] Sam Roberts," he elaborated. "And obviously my dearest friends. Everyone. A lot of people I haven't heard from for a long time, and they're all people I really have a lot of love for."
Asked if one of those people who reached out was WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, X-Pac replied, "No, Vince doesn't have time for that. That's not his deal. It's the basic Triple H, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Shawn Michaels. Actually, I think I haven't replied to Scott yet. I just started replying."
"I wandered around in the darkness for over a decade," X-Pac explained about why people were so concerned. "That means I was into heavy drug use. Heavy. Where do I even start? I'd go missing, people wouldn't know where I was. But in the past, I was just coked out, methed out, things like that. People were really, really concerned for me, and there was a point where in Mexico I hung myself. My ex saved me. I was actually dead. She brought me back to life. I was in a coma for three days."
"I've always been a really good guy. I'm doing great now, and I have been for a while," X-Pac continued. "Still, I would caution somebody about getting into a relationship with me. Actually, I keep myself out of that type of stuff right now. I have a lot going on and I have to focus, and that's a distraction for me."
"Somebody could fall off pretty quick," he did warn. "They just wouldn't pick themselves back up like this real quick.
"I wasn't using anything," X-Pac assured everyone. "Nothing. No relapse. Nothing. Well, besides [marijuana]. That's all I use."
"Even my closest friends, I understand if they doubt me, at least in the back of their minds."
X-Pac 1,2,360 will air on Wednesday, with Johnny Mundo, who wrestled in WWE as John Morrison, as a special guest. X-Pac will reveal his story then. We'll let you know what he says.
