Angle Says His Quality of Life “Sucks” After Wrestling

Feb 15, 2020 - by James Walsh

In an interview with Carl Frampton and Chris Lloyd, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle was asked if he would do everything again if he had the chance: 

“I don’t know. I mean, I’m hurting pretty badly. My knees, my back, my neck. Sometimes I think about, would I go back? My quality of life right now sucks. So I do have a lot of suffering.” 

Angle also talked about competing in the Olympics after breaking his neck: 

“I couldn’t get passed by any doctor… so I eventually found a doctor and he said, the only thing you can do, well you can’t train. We’ll just stick you in the neck with novocain… Every match I had at trials and the Olympics I got 12 shots of Novocain in the back of my neck.” 

Thanks to for the quotes.
