Kurt Angle ‘took 65 Vicodin a day’ at height of addiction issues

Sep 25, 2016 - by Steve Gerweck

Kurt Angle has revealed in a candid interview on the Dan Le Batard show that he was taking 65 extra-strength Vicodin a day at the height of his addiction problems.

“I was on a lot — there was no way I couldn’t get out of it,” the 47 year-old-said via phone call on Friday morning’s show. “The only thing I could do was eventually go to rehab and try to fix my life again. But I actually beat it on my own. I stayed in my house for about 10 days and didn’t leave, and I was able to get through the withdrawal.”

An Olympic gold medallist in freestyle wrestling in 1996, Angle joined the then-WWF in 1998 but suffered several health setbacks during his time at the company, where he became a six-time world champion.
