It’s been a rough weekend for WWE legend X-Pac as he was arrested at Los Angeles Airport PD. The former superstar was not present for his IPW show in the United Kingdom and his absence was noticed by some other people working the event.
Waltman was announced missing a few days ago and that sparked a tweet from wrestling personality Wade Keller which explained that he had a source that knew where the former superstar was.
Keller would later explain that X-Pac was just dealing with a few issues. Wrestlingnews.co later revealed that Waltman was arrested on Saturday April 29 at 12:45 AM. His bail has been set at $35,000 and that sum will probably stand firm until paid.

He was attempting to make the show despite being behind schedule and got stopped by the police and searched. Following the search, the police decided to take him into custody and things still don’t look great for the former WWE talent.
According to the L.A. Sherrif’s Department, X-Pac got released on Sunday evening and is out now while fans are still trying to piece together exactly what happened this weekend. Waltman said that he will explain everything in detail on his radio show.

TMZ scooped him and are reporting that X-Pac tried to carry crystal meth and marijuana through customs over the weekend. To make matters worse, they also say that he was transported to a nearby jail where they discovered an outstanding warrant for Waltman from a prior incident.
The former member of DX has struggled with substances in the past and has been arrested for drug possession multiple times. He told Steve Austin on his show that he had a real problem with crystal meth when he originally moved to Los Angeles.
His relationship with Chyna was highly reported and she passed away after a long battle with substance abuse late last year. At her funeral, the superstar was deeply troubled and expressed real regret that he couldn’t have helped her in some way.
Fans should expect a statement on what happened exactly pretty soon. He’s been pretty open about everything that went on during his in-ring career with his show and fans will expect that same level of transparency when it comes to this situation.
Hopefully, he can get the help he needs as well in overcoming whatever personal demons he is dealing with.
