Dutch Mantel talks about returning as Zeb Colter & Impaired Driving awareness

After resurfacing in WWE last month as the vocal Zeb Colter following years of dormancy from mainstream wrestling television, Dutch Mantel has broken his silence on his affiliation with Vince McMahon’s organization.

“Hey guys…sorry I haven’t been around much but since I’ve gotten a ‘new job’ I’ve been running like crazy,”wrote Mantell on Facebook. “There’s not enough time in the week to handle all the things now. I’m not leaving, I’m just having to back out for a while. I’m the same guy…just with a different perspective now.”

Mantell then asked his Facebook friends to continue supporting this online campaign raising impaired driving awareness in support of his late granddaughter, Amanda, who instantly died last summer due to a head-on collision with an impaired driver. Her automobile collided with a car driven by a man named John Perkins, “who had decided to get high on a mix of Oxycontin, Xanax, and Meth and then drive.” Mantell however, does not acknowledge associate Jack Swagger’s arrest last month on charges of driving under the influence, marijuana possession, and speeding.

“Keep supporting Amanda and the cause and I promise, I’ll be back soon with the Dutchism’s and the BS,” Mantell wrote. “I have a lot of great stories to tell…funny how life changes. What a story. I’ll keep it until the next book. You won’t believe it. Take care…keep watching. This could get very interesting.”
