Former WWE/TNA Star Sean Waltman Talks Suicide Attempt

From an interview with the Miami Herald about how he almost killed himself in Mexico while dating Alicia “Ryan Shamrock” Webb:

“I got in a heated argument that turned into physicality with my girlfriend [Alicia Webb]. I ended up striking her back. I always told myself that I would die before I would hit a woman. So when I did that, I was overcome with guilt and shame. I had no tools to handle it. The only thing I could think of was take a whole bottle of Valium or what was left of the bottle. It was probably around 400 milligrams of Valium.

“I hung myself from the roof of my apartment. It was the darkest moment of my life, or one of them, to get me to do that. It was a lot of build up that I didn’t know how to deal with.”

“She got me down, which I don’t know how she did it. She is like superwoman. I swear. She did CPR and all that. She kept me alive for 45 minutes until the ambulance arrived. Then I was really on life support for three days.

“Kevin Nash was there the next day. As soon as I got out of the hospital, he was there. I went to a place to the Menninger Clinic in Houston, Texas. I stayed four months.”
