• Kurt Angle Reveals The Number Of Times He Broke His Neck In WWE
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle revealed the number of times he broke his neck in WWE.
Below is what Angle recalled:
“Let’s see, I got hit over the head by Brock [Lesnar] once and broke my neck with a chair.
Brock also ran across the ring once and I was on his back and he turned sideways and whiplash and my two vertebrae broke there. So, two with Brock.
One with Eddie Guerrero at WrestleMania. I did an Angle Slam off the top rope and landed on my head and that broke.
Then 2006 in January, I broke it right before I wrestled Undertaker before No Way Out.
So, that was four times.”
