Sean Waltman (aka X-Pac) announced Sunday night that his “wife of many years” has passed away.
The former WWE Superstar is referring to a woman by the name of Terry Renee Paulson, who he was married to from 1994 to 2002. They had two children together, a son named Jesse and a daughter named Kaitlyn.
Waltman revealed on Twitter that Terry “lost her battle with mental illness and addiction.”
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.
