• Kurt Angle Explains Why Back Injuries Are Worse Than Neck Injuries
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’, our Olympic Gold Medalist spoke about the WWE Survivor Series 2002 PPV and confirmed that he was working a lighter schedule around that time, because of his back issues.
Here’s what Kurt Angle said:
“Ever since high school. I had some back problems in high school. But I didn’t have any as serious as up until this moment. The thing is, with my back, it was really painful.
What I want to tell you is this. Breaking my neck 5 times, it debilitates you, where you can’t do certain things, especially in your arms. Your arms go numb and sometimes you lose strength in your arms. Your back controls everything. You can’t do anything when your back is hurting.
But your back controls everything. You can’t do anything when your back is hurting.
I’ll give you an example. Randy Orton just had surgery on his back. He literally couldn’t do anything. This surgery is actually, hopefully, saving his career. But that’s how much back problems can affect you as a pro wrestler.”
Kurt Angle wrestled his final professional wrestling match at the WWE WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view on April 7th 2019, which he lost to Baron Corbin.
The former 13-time World Heavyweight Champion (2x WWF Champion, 2x WWE Champion, 1x WCW World Heavyweight Champion in the WWF, 1x World Heavyweight Champion in WWE, 6x TNA World Champion, 1x IWGP Heavyweight Champion) has been officially retired ever since.
