Sean Waltman addressed the passing on the X-Pac 1,2,360 podcast and was not happy about Christopher being put in solitary confinement for as long as he was there.
“I’m really pissed about this, really pissed. Because I’ve been in that situation in more than one way. And you don’t take someone that’s not done something violent or isn’t a danger to others, even then you don’t put somebody in solitary confinement…You don’t put people in solitary confinement for that long that didn’t do shit and then go ‘Oh, it wasn’t solitary confinement,’ it’s f***ing solitary confinement!”
He also has first hand experience with solitary confinement and revealed he also tried to hang himself while in there.
“I’ve been in it, if you’ve never actually been in it I don’t want to hear it from you at all. It’s torture. It drives you crazy, you don’t have to be suicidal, you become suicidal; you stay in there with no one to talk too staring at the walls for that long. I’ve been there and I’ve hung myself and so I know. I have a pretty good idea of where he was and it’s just about the worst place you can ever imagine. Not only are you in the lowest possible place but you die that way. You never come up out of it…. I love that guy , I was tight with Brian in WWE… He was crazy as f*** no doubt, but if you knew him like I did you would know he’s a real wonderful guy.”
