Professional wrestlers are athletes, entertainers, role models and so much more, and at the end of the day it’s important to recognize that even though they seem larger than life, we’re all human. Everybody goes through tough times in life, and sometimes challenging situations can lead to addiction.

Former ECW and WWE Superstar Justin Credible has had his issues with addiction, but he recently took to Twitter to note that he’s clean and sober now. The former ECW World Heavyweight Champion praised WWE’s wellness program for helping him on the road to recovery, and he also noted that he plans to redeem himself in 2018.

Justin Credible posted the following:

“When I retired from pro wrestling I honestly didn’t think I would miss it all that much. The last year of my life has been full of ups and downs. Most of them public. My struggles with addiction have been well documented. I’m pleased to say that TODAY i’m clean and sober. Through the amazing help of the @WWE wellness program I am able to live a life I never thought possible with gratitude love and compassion. I also want to say that when I retired October 16 2015 I was not the person that you remember as Justin Credible.”

“What I’m basically trying to say is 2018 is going to be the year that I redeem myself. Not only in the eyes of the fans but of my peers. I gave this business everything and in return I got lost along the way as so many do. This is in some gimmick to try to get bookings. If for no other reason I just want to show everyone that with the love and support from the fans & @wwe Wellness program anyone can battle their demons and come back better than ever. Stay tuned……”

It seems that Credible could be teasing another match as well, because he retweeted the following message:
