• Zach Gowen Reveals He Was An Alcoholic Till He Stopped Drinking In 2010

Former WWE Wrestler Zach Gowen took to Facebook and revealed that he’s sober for 11 years now.

Apparently he was once into alcohol and drugs but eventually stopped all of it and became a happy man with a fiancée and 3 kids.

Here’s what Zach posted:

“The worst part of not having a drink in over 11 years is not knowing what a Lime-A-Rita or a White Claw taste like. The best part is knowing that everything good in my life is a direct result of recovery. Fair trade ?? one day at a time ??


He also added some comments under his post:

“Just to clarify, today isn’t my sober birthday! Date of my last drink and drug is February 14, 2010. The length of my sobriety is incidental to what I’m doing TODAY (the most important day) to walk a path of recovery. We ARE celebrating National Sober Day!”

“No advice as there are many ways to stop drinking. I can only share what worked for me, which was a complete surrender to the fact I couldn’t win that battle on my own. Followed by in-patient treatment which introduced me to a program of recovery which led the path to the life I live now.”

Gowen was the only one-legged Superstar in WWE history.

• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Old School NWA/WWF/WCW Legend “The Enforcer” Arn Anderson (Real name: Marty Lunde) celebrates his 63rd birthday today.

Arn became a huge star in NWA Jim Crockett Promotions, where he was a founding member of one of the greatest factions in professional wrestling history, The Four Horsemen.

When Ted Turner bought the promotion, him and fellow Horseman Tully Blanchard left and joined the World Wrestling Federation, where they were known as The Brain Busters.

Arn returned to the NWA promotion, now renamed World Championship Wrestling, in December 1989 and it wasn’t long before he reformed The Four Horsemen again.

In 2012, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by former rival “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.
