Headbanger Thrasher Says He’s Dealt With Depression Since WWE Release


Headbanger Thrasher was a recent guest on the “Stories With Brisco and Bradshaw” podcast to discuss a variety of topics, including a time where he was dealing with depression following his release from WWE back in 2000.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On struggling in the years since his WWE release: “It’s funny, our roles have reversed. I moved down to Florida about 10 years ago and I was really, really bad overweight. I’ve had fights with weight problems probably since I left WWF. I was as heavy as 315 at one time. I came down here and Chaz was like, ‘Just move down to Florida, we’ll start wrestling again and everything’ … I finally moved down here and everything else and I got as low as 215. It was bad.”

On dealing with depression at the time: “I’m gonna be honest, a lot of it was depression. When I left WWE at the time I didn’t know what to do. Chaz was down here still doing his own thing, I didn’t know what to do. So, I was just eating everything and anything.”
