• Kurt Angle Says His Quality Of Life Sucks
During a recent interview on TKO podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle talked about his physical pain and was asked if he would do it all over again if given the opportunity.
Below is what Angle said:
“I don’t know. I mean, I’m hurting pretty badly. My knees, my back, my neck. Sometimes I think about, would I go back? My quality of life right now sucks. So I do have a lot of suffering.”
Angle said the following about dealing with physical pain ahead of his win in the Olympics:
“I couldn’t get passed by any doctor…so I eventually found a doctor and he said, the only thing you can do, well you can’t train. We’ll just stick you in the neck with novocain…Every match I had at trials and the Olympics I got 12 shots of Novocain in the back of my neck.”
