During his appearance on the latest episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle opened up about his painkiller addiction.

Below is what the Olympic Gold Medalist said:

“You know what I would do, I literally… I had 12 doctors. And I had 12 different pharmacies, because you can’t go to the same pharmacy twice in a month. Then I had a Mexican contact where I got them illegally.

So, I was getting about 2,700 pills a month. And you know what? That’s all you think about. It’s all you think about, how you’re gonna get your drugs next time.”

Angle has also noted in the past that he was taking 65 extra-strength Vicodin in a single day, and that he’s lucky to be alive.

Back in 2017, Angle noted that WWE didn’t want to bring him in because of his drug issues:

“They didn’t want me. And I understood why. You know, when you screw up so many times, your reputation is destroyed. It doesn’t matter how good you are or how much the fans want you back.

If you’re a publicly traded company, you’re looking at Kurt Angle and saying, ‘Okay, he’s been in a lot of trouble with drugs. He’s had 4 DUIs. He’s out of control. We haven’t had him in for 11 years. Is he really worth it? Will it have a negative effect on the business? Will he be a liability?’ So I understood.”
