You can see them in good and bad moments, but at the end of the day, the stories are made up. Unfortunately there are real life problems that they have to face as well, and now we are going to get to hear a story about one wrestler who had to deal with something very serious.

Last few months I've been filming my #AddictionRecovery process. From getting out of rehab to living in a recovery home, dealing with homelessness to building @3Legacies and getting life back together. @BobbacondaPro will be releasing this documentary later this year. pic.twitter.com/gA1ScTfsJv

Rodriguez was quite the star in WWE. Check out some of his time there:
Opinion: This is one of those stories that can be very hard to hear about but it does seem like Rodriguez has come a very long way. He appears to have overcome a lot already and made quite a bit of progress. Maybe hearing the story will be able to encourage or help someone, while also showing wrestling fans another side of someone that they saw on television for a long time.
