Tommy Dreamer has a new column posted on TheWhig.com looking at the work WWE does with sending former stars to rehab if they are in need.
“Drugs are a personal choice and there are only two ways out: death or total sobriety. I have put several of my friends in WWE-sponsored rehab. The business of professional wrestling doesn’t make someone do drugs; the disease of substance abuse makes you do drugs. Personally, I have broken my neck and back. Some mornings, I am in so much pain that I can barely walk, but I choose not to take pain medication. My own mother has never had a wrestling match and has similar pains, where she can’t walk. It is called old age. Please don’t misunderstand me, I am no better than anyone else. Nor am I trying to preach. Rather I am simply stating that I am happy that WWE does that to help people get sober.”
