Former WWE Superstar and Tough Enough champion Maven has credited WWE for saving his life as they picked up the tab for his 50 day rehab program.

Maven was arrested in Florida in April of this year after he was caught using different doctors to get several painkillers, including Oxycodone and Hydrocodone. He did manage to get almost 1,000 pills from different pharmacies before law enforcement officers busted him.

“I owe the WWE my life for helping me through this situation,” Maven told TMZ.COM, adding that he’d be dead if WWE didn’t reach out to help him sort out his addiction problem.

TMZ says that the former WWE Hardcore champion has now moved into a sober living facility and “has never felt better.”

WWE reached out to Maven just days after his arrest and release from jail following a $2,000 bond. “Chapter 2 of my life begins now. I have the clarity and focus that comes with sobriety and will never let my family, friends and fans down again.”
