The good ol’ shoot interview. In wrestling terms, it’s an interview or promo that is “legit.” In other words, it goes off script or contains personal feelings and behind the scenes secrets. While they rarely happen on television anymore (other than the occasional “worked shoot”), many former wrestlers are quick to jump onto YouTube after their contracts expire and start dishing out dirt on their former bosses and co-workers.
The internet was quick to cast blame when it was reported in early May that Sean Waltman (aka X-Pac, aka Syxx, aka The 1-2-3- Kid) had been arrested at LAX airport for possession of meth and marijuana. Having a long and public history of drug addiction, many wrestling fans feared the worst for Waltman. However, in the days after the arrest, the former NWO member insisted that it was all a misunderstanding.
It was reported earlier this week that former WWE superstar X-Pac (aka Sean Waltman, aka The 1-2-3 Kid, aka Syxx) was arrested at LAX airport for have meth on him. It caused him to miss a scheduled booking in the U.K., and for about 24 hours the internet wrestling community feared he might actually be dead.
It’s likely the whole world knows who Brendan Dassey is at this point, after he was one of the subjects of the critically acclaimed Netflix series Making A Murderer. During the show, Dassey, who is intellectually challenged (a fact which played into how he was convicted as an accomplice), talked about how he was upset that he was going to be in jail and unable to watch WrestleMania 22. This caught the attention of wrestling fans and several wrestlers, most notably former WWE Superstar X-Pac, who expressed a desire to visit Dassey in prison.
