Law enforcement sources tell us … 44-year-old Sean Waltman was flying out to a wrestling event in the United Kingdom when he was stopped at Customs and officials discovered the drugs. We’re told airport police were called to the scene and Waltman was arrested on the spot. He was transported to a nearby jail where he was booked for possession of a controlled substance. To make things worse … during the process, officials noticed an outstanding warrant for Waltman stemming from a prior DUI arrest. Bail was set at $35k. He’s since been released. Waltman has struggled with substance abuse in the past — he’s been arrested for drug possession on multiple occasions. He also told Steve Austin he “got real bad” on crystal meth when he first moved out to L.A. Waltman was also in a prior relationship with Chyna — who died from drugs and alcohol after a battle with substance abuse. We reached out to X-Pac’s rep who told us the wrestling superstar is “fine” — but didn’t have any other details.
Wrestling legend Sean Waltman, who is better known by his ring names X-Pac or The 1-2-3 Kid, was reported missing this weekend after he no showed a booking and nobody could contact him. It turns out, he was not missing, he was detained at LAX and was arrested after attempting to sneak weed and meth onto a flight to the United Kingdom. Waltman makes no secret about his frequent use of medicinal marijuana, so it’s not a huge surprise he was in possession of a little weed, but the fact that he once again relapsed on methamphetamine is troubling. Waltman is one of the most underrated wrestlers in the history of the business, he is a great worker and an interesting guy who is very well spoken on his successful podcast called XPac12360, we here at SportSmasher.com hope that he gets his life together and beats the addictions that he has struggled with for a long time.
