Some have accused Vinaldi of having ties to organized crime, and using them to get ahead in the wrestling industry. These claims have been proved completely false through investigations by law enforcement organizations. Vinaldi commented "I never got a thing in this industry I didn't earn, and if anyone says otherwise they'll be counting the teeth they drop in the toilet after I kick them down their throats"

In 2004, Vinaldi was arrested and released on assault and domestic abuse charges after knocking a girlfriend unconscious when he walked in on her performing oral sex on another man and kicked her in the head mid-coitus.
