• Kurt Angle On Jeff Hardy Using Drugs & Alcohol To Cope With Pain

During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle talked about Jeff Hardy’s battle with alcohol being similar to his own.

Below is what Angle said:

“It’s not easy, I mean going through these problems especially with alcohol and drugs, you know. I don’t know what the issue is with Jeff. You know, if could be he’s in so much pain which I completely agree.

I think that Jeff out of anybody his daredevil stunt work that he does night in and night out his body has to be shot. There’s a way to cope with pain, but drugs and alcohol is not the way. It does help temporarily, but it’s not the way.

I’m always praying for Jeff. I love the kid. I know he can pull through this.”
