X-Pac suspected of dealing meth, says he did not have relapse
X-Pac took to Twitter on Monday to assure his fans that he has not suffered a drug relapse, but that may not help keep the WWE legend out of jail.
X-Pac, whose real name is Sean Waltman, was arrested over the weekend for trying to bring methamphetamine and marijuana through customs at Los Angeles International Airport before his flight to the United Kingdom. The 44-year-old has been open about his struggles with drug addiction in the past, so naturally people have begun wondering if he is still using. Waltman says he is not.
I've had a crazy weekend. I'll get into it on the show Wednesday. Way too much to tweet about. Still mentally strong & healthy. No relapse.

According to a police report obtained by TMZ Sports, police found three cannibis chocolate bars, two THC liquid cigarettes, 38 methamphetamine capsules and $736.10 cash in Waltman’s luggage. Authorities say the “large quantity of pills plus the large quantity of U.S. currency are associated with narcotics sales,” and Waltman was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell — a felony that carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison.
While it won’t help him in court, that could mean Waltman is dealing drugs rather than using them. That’s notable for someone who admitted a while back that he “got real bad” with a crystal meth addiction when he first moved to Los Angeles.
Life outside the ring has obviously not been easy for Waltman. If you remember the horrific injury he suffered a few years back, you know life inside of it wasn’t always pleasant for him, either. Even if he does have an explanation for the drug bust, it’s hard to imagine him avoiding serious legal trouble.
