The tweets sent by the former Intercontinental Champion - if true, will make a lot of people question their opinions of him as he aims to dispel the rumours that he was carrying illegal drugs.

Waltman posted a picture of the yeast-cleanse capsules and included some interesting captions.

Claiming that he understands people's reasons to doubt him, he showed an obvious awareness for his reputation.

Waltman was charged with a felony for possession of a controlled substance when he was detained by Los Angeles airport police.

During the process however, police discovered that he still had an outstanding warrant for a previous DUI arrest.

He was released on a $35,000 bond and now has a court date set for the 25th of May.

In the meantime, as he put in his tweets, they are still awaiting the results of several different tests surrounding this weekend.

A TROUBLED PATH

Waltman has certainly struggled since his in- ring career came to an end, but he is not the only former WWE superstar to fall into disarray in his years following their career.

The most notable example is that of Scott Hall who himself has had many issues with narcotics over the years.

Hall has famously overcome his issues thanks to help from his fellow former superstars and has largely remained out of the headlines in recent months.
