After Arrest for Rx Drugs

Former WWE superstar Maven Huffman
He hasn't wrestled for the WWE in 7 years ... but former superstar Maven Huffman is getting a helping hand from Vince McMahon ... after he learned the wrestler was arrested for an alleged prescription pill scam.

The WWE tells us ... the organization has already reached out to Maven to offer "rehab assistance" as part of the WWE’s Former Talent Rehab program.

TMZ broke the story ... Maven -- who won a WWE contract on the "Tough Enough" reality show back in 2001 -- was arrested in Florida this week for allegedly doctor shopping in an effort to get his fix of powerful pain pills.

As part of the WWE's policy, the organization will pay for 100% of any rehab or treatment program for former WWE wrestlers ... as long as the wrestler wants the help.

The rep notes, "WWE is the only entertainment or sports organization that offers its former performers assistance with substance abuse issues."
