Former WWE superstar Kaitlyn is opening up about her battle with drug and alcohol addiction ... saying she's turned her life around after "wanting to die" at her lowest point.

Kaitlyn -- real name Celeste Bonin -- shared her story on the 1-year anniversary of checking herself in for a drug detox. 

"I remember getting out of the hospital feeling like death, with a medical taper plan of meds and thinking, 'What have I done to myself?'"

"I celebrated my 30th birthday 5 days later and I remember wanting to die."

Kaitlyn says a lot of people get hooked on those detox meds ... but she instead turned to alcohol to deal with her depression and anxiety.

The former Divas champ didn't detail exactly how she overcame her addictions -- or the drug(s) she was hooked on -- but says she's been able to rebuild her life in the time since.

Kaitlyn left off with a message for anyone in her shoes -- "Never be too proud to ask for help. Be able to wake up and look at yourself in the mirror."

At first, Nick told TMZ Sports he woulda picked the exact same superstars ... but after thinking about it, he couldn't 100% commit to the People's Champ.

Sounded pretty crazy at first ... until you hear his other 2 picks (they were really good). 

Do ya smelllllllllllll ... what Nick Hogan is cookin'??

EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey still won't officially say she's headed to WWE ... but she sure made it seem like something's cookin' when we got her and hubby Travis Browne leaving LAX.

When our guy tried to get it outta her, Ronda came back with -- "If you were a real fan, would you really wanna know?"

Before adding that, "I enjoy it more that way, and I don't wanna ruin anything."  

Interesting ... especially 'cause WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon recently confirmed Rousey's offer is still on the table ... and the UFC mega-star was in a promo with Ric Flair's daughter, Charlotte, just last month.

And now ... we got Travis telling TMZ Sports he might consider a move to the pro wrestling biz too -- "We're still making decisions on my part ... I'm not gonna say no!"

EXCLUSIVE

Hey, WWE -- want a bigger, scarier version of Ronda Rousey?

Look no further ... 'cause women's MMA giant Gabi Garcia says she's down to step inside the squared circle!

"I love the show, I love watching WWE, so why not?" Gabi told us at LAX.

Don't get it twisted -- the Brazilian says she's not even close to being done fighting ... but tells TMZ Sports pro wrestling is a definite possibility if Vince McMahon's interested.

He should be. Garcia's got the skill -- she's a 10-time jiu-jitsu world champ -- and she's FOR SURE got the size at 6' 2'', 200-plus pounds.

But for now, she's focused on finding her next opponent. 

Girl, guy ... doesn't matter to Gabi.

Cena and his fiancee Nikki Bella were leaving Craig's in L.A. after Nikki performed on "Dancing with the Stars" ... when we asked about John's future.

John Cena Bradley Cooper Would Make a 'Cute' Vince McMahon

10/3/2017 7:32 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

With reports that Bradley Cooper has been offered to play the role of Vince McMahon in an upcoming biopic, we asked John Cena the most important question about the movie ... 

Is Bradley too cute to play Vince? 

Some background ... there are a ton of unconfirmed reports that WWE Studios is moving forward with what's essentially being described as an origin movie about Vince. It's reportedly called "Pandemonium."

Some of the early criticism of the flick is that it's a SUPER sensationalized version of the real story of McMahon -- and with Cooper's name floating around, seems like the rumors could be true. 

But Cena doesn't think so -- telling TMZ Sports the former Sexiest Man Alive has the right amount of cuteness to play the most powerful man in pro wrestling. 

Can't argue with those dimples.

EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey hasn't officially signed with WWE, but the offer to come into the ring “absolutely still stands” -- so says Stephanie McMahon.

“We'd love to have you in WWE,” Steph added on her way outta LAX.

Vince’s daughter is super high up in the family biz ... so she would know.

Fans thought it was a gimme that Rousey was coming over after she cut a promo with Ric Flair’s daughter, Charlotte ... but that was almost a month ago, and still nothing.

But Steph says not to lose hope ... even teasing a WrestleMania rematch! Remember -- Ronda woman-handled her and hubby Triple H at The Showcase of the Immortals a couple years back. 

McMahon didn't wanna call out Rousey, though ... so our money's on Charlotte.
