Buff Bagwell

Ex-WCW and WWE star Buff Bagwell suffered a setback in his recent attempts to get his life back on track when he was placed under arrest earlier this month.

Cobb County records in Marietta, Georgia show Marcus Bagwell was arrested on July 13th on misdemeanour charges for speeding and driving under the influence of drugs at 1.30 pm. He was released from custody 48 hours later on Saturday, 15th of July.

Buff Bagwell has been arrested for similar offenses in the past with a 2021 arrest leading to charges related to a 2020 crash which also included driving under the influence of drugs.

This seems to be a setback for Buff Bagwell as back in January 2023 he spoke to Eric Bischoff on his 83 Weeks podcast to explain how he was sober at the time:

“When you take on the Aftercare part, and continue your sobriety with numerous days, with the 90 meetings in 90 days, all the stuff that people hear, but stuff that people don’t do, and I actually did it. I did the 90 in 90. I’m not a day counter. My sobriety date is August 27. That’s actually 148 days today. They got a new app now that you can check out. It’s 148 days today sober, and I’ve never been 148 days sober in my life. I mean, I really don’t think so. When you talk about complete sobriety, 148 days is huge.”

Did Buff Bagwell Wrestle In WWE?

After a stellar career in WCW which saw him hold the WCW World Tag Team Championship on five different occasions as well as join the nWo, Buff Bagwell made the jump to WWE when WCW was acquired by Vince McMahon in 2001.

Bagwell only competed once on WWE television however, losing to WCW World Champion Booker T in an infamous bout on Raw that many believe led Vince McMahon to pull the plug on continuing to run the WCW brand.
