But with all his achivements, Verdi had his demons, with multiple arrests for drug possession, including heroin and pills, and did jail time and rehab in 2010, including doing time after a 2008 incident with friend Billy Reil, which resulted in seven months in jail. During Verdi’s periods of being clean and sober, he talked about not wanting to walk down the path of family members with similar problems, and to get back fulltime into the wrestling business. Verdi was awaiting trial for a charge of possessing five Xanax pills without a prescription dating from a October 2009 arrest. His most recent arrest was the result of a probation violation for attempting to take dates with Big Japan Wrestling (out of the United States).
Realizing it’ll soon be 2 years ago that this happened still makes me feel older and sadder. But his sending a shout out on that day will always make me link him and TOD, even though he never worked the hardcore matches in those shows.
Until next time…
