• “I was in a very dark place after WrestleMania match with Eddie Guerrero” – WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle

In an Instagram post, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle opened up about being in a very dark place after his match with then WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero at WrestleMania 20 back in 2004.

Below is what Angle wrote:

“I remember this specific spot in my match with Eddie Guerrero at WrestleMania 20. This move (a belly to belly suplex off the top rope contributed to me breaking my neck for the 4th time – 1 before the Olympics and 3 in WWE).

After this match, I was forced to be sidelined for about 6 months, but I continued to work as GM of SmackDown.

At this point in my career, I started to unravel out of control with everything. I was in a very dark place. I made bad decisions that I regret. But I’m stronger now than I ever was.

Always remember that you have choices to make in your life. Be smart… choose the things that will benefit you, and not the things that will hurt you. #itstrue #addictionrecovery”
