This so sad. He's admired by so many youngsters who love the WWE. I hope he can set the example of getting the help he needs so people who are suffering from addictions can follow Jeff's lead and see the light at the end of the tunnel. God be with you Jeff!!!!

It's funny how so called stars always get the best deals, if it was a normal every day guy they would have put him under the jail for a few years & years ago.

How about a rehab instead of jail, i thought prison was for people that are threats to society i dont believe he is a threat. How is the wrestling community helping these men who fall to drugs, seems like a common problem. Get well and good luck Jeff
