Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, best known for his work in the WWE and WCW, revealed on Twitter earlier today that his wife Terry has passed away. Terry, who was also the mother of his two children, had two other children as well. According the wrestler, his wife of many years had an addiction problem and undisclosed mental illness.
“I'm numb right now over the death of Terry, my wife of many years & the mother of my children. She lost her battle with Mental Illness & Addiction. She had 2 other children(7 &12)that my kids had to break the news to a short time ago. My heart hurts for them so bad right now,” read his tweet.
Many have been quick to express their condolences for his loss, especially fellow wrestlers. Retired professional wrestler Matt Hardy wrote, "My heart goes out to you because of this terrible sad scenario that’s occurred, Sean. Thinking about you & the kids"
Charles Ashenoff, better known by his ring name, Konnan offered his support with the tweet, “Stay strong for your kids they are gonna need it..Wish I could take away your pain my bro...If you feel like talking, please don't hesitate to call me...”

The Blue Meanie and Zelina Vega said that they were sorry to hear about Sean’s loss, while Nita Strauss said, “Sending lots of love and strength to you and yours. So incredibly sorry for your loss.”
A few years ago, Sean had to deal with the loss of his close friend and ex-girlfriend Joanie “Chyna” Laurer and more recently that of Brian Christopher, who had committed suicide while he was in solitary confinement during his incarceration that followed a DUI arrest.
Sean, who was furious about the confinement had said at the time, "I've been there and I've hung myself and so I know. I have a pretty good idea of where [Christopher] was and it's just about the worst place you can ever imagine. Not only are you in the lowest possible place but you die that way. You never come up out of it... I love [Christopher], I was tight with Brian in WWE. He was crazy as f--k no doubt, but if you knew him like I did you would know he's a real wonderful guy."
