If he was an "escaped mental patient", what would prevent anyone from capturing and thus committing him again? Instead of escaping why not just say he spent time at a psychiatric facility and was deemed sane enough to be released? Of course, over time everyone would find out that isn't the case at all.
Then again R-Truth still has an imaginary friend so logic really has no place in a WWE storyline.
My impatience is peaking. Please, Dean, make it all better.
