Buff Bagwell: Former Wrestler Now A Gigolo
Ellisha Rader Mannering
If you were a wrestling fan in the 90’s you probably remember Buff Bagwell. Bagwell was known for his high energy and good looks and even though he wrestled on smaller wrestling circuits after leaving WCW, he has finally found another job that pays well and allows him to utilize his energy and good looks.
Buff Bagwell is now a gigolo, and an expensive one at that. Bagwell is now employed by Cowboys4Angels, a premium gigolo service designed for lonely women.
What does Bagwell charge for his gigolo services? More than you might think. His rates are $800 for 2 hours, $1550 for 4 hours and $3000 for an overnight stay and $25,000 for an entire weekend with the ripped and rowdy former wrestler.
According to the company Bagwell is the second most requested gigolo that they have. He also has a wife but claims that he is in an open marriage and that his wife not only knows about his job, but is okay with it.
Bagwell surprised fans when he appeared on the television show Gigolos back in February. Well many people assumed his appearance was just a publicity stunt, the former NWO member confirmed that he was indeed a real gigolo.
Bagwell’s decision to become a gigolo may be hard to understand, but it could be part of an attempt to live his life to the fullest. In April 2012, Bagwell was involved in a serious car accident that left him hooked up to breathing machines and feeding tubes for several days. Even after he was taken off the machines, it was not clear if he would walk again.
Luckily, Bagwell recovered but realized it was time to leave wrestling behind. After having four plates surgically inserted in his face due to the accident, it was not likely that Bagwell’s body would be able to holdout very long in the ring. Bagwell decided it was time for a career change and apparently chose to become a gigolo.
