There’s been a lot of concern for former WWE/ECW star Justin Credible after recent videos posted on his YouTube account. In the first video (see below), he said that he was arrested for threatening someone and he faces jail time. He said that he doesn’t have a public defender on his side and “my life is on the line here and it’s very scary.”
He also said that he’s had over 20 concussions during his career. Watch the first video below and scroll down for the second one where he talks about his issues with alcohol.
In the second clip, he says that he is going to get help in Tampa, Florida. Credible claims that he is a recovering addict and he does not do drugs and his issues are only related to alcohol abuse. So it looks like he will be avoiding jail time by going to rehab. Presumably, this is WWE-sponsored rehab since it would cost him a fortune if he paid out of pocket and WWE offers to pay for rehab for anyone that has ever been under contract with them. He thanked Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, Scott Hall, Diamond Dallas Page and Jake Roberts for helping him.
This is not the first time he’s entered WWE-sponsored rehab. He completed the program a few years ago and seemed to be doing well for a while. He retired from wrestling in 2005 but returned to the independent scene a few months ago. There’s a video floating around online of him teaming up with The Sandman and New Jack and it’s sad to watch.
