Diamond Dallas Page has shared an update on the progress of Buff Bagwell after the former WCW star reached out for help.
In early March, Buff Bagwell announced that he was cancelling his upcoming appearances in order to “get himself together.” In the post on social media, Bagwell explained that he would be moving in with Diamond Dallas Page and taking part in the WWE Hall of Famer’s new “Change or Die” docuseries.
In recent years, Bagwell’s battle with addiction and numerous legal issues have been well documented.
Page famously helped and mentored Jake “The Snake” Roberts as he battled alcoholism in 2012. Over the next two years, DDP led Roberts through a rehabilitation program at his ‘Accountability Crib.’ This journey was documented in the award-winning film, The Resurrection of Jake The Snake.
Moving back to 2022, Page is hoping to help his former WCW colleague in a similar way.
Posting on social media, Page has shared a positive update, writing that Bagwell is progressing well.

Buff Bagwell began his wrestling career back in 1990, before moving to WCW a year later. During his early years in the company, Bagwell squared off against the likes of a young Steve Austin, before teaming with 2 Cold Scorpio, and winning the World Tag Team Titles.
Bagwell joined the nWo in 1996 and remained with WCW until the company collapsed in 2001. The former tag champion then made the switch to WWE, but his time with the company is mostly remembered for his match with Booker T on the July 2nd episode of Monday Night Raw.
The bout was supposed to represent a new WCW presentation and was poorly received by fans. Bagwell left the company just weeks later. He went on to have multiple stints in TNA while also appearing on the independent scene.
