• WWE Hall Of Famer Is In Extreme Pain, But Won’t Take Painkillers
During a recent Q&A episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, our Olympic Gold Medalist was asked about his current health status, where he revealed that he’s in extreme pain all day long but refuses to take any painkillers.
Here’s what Kurt Angle said:
“I’m in extreme pain all day long. I do maintenance on my body all day. I do my neck traction. I have a thing called the Iron Neck, where it trains your neck. I have anti-gravity machine rollers. I stretch. I do a lot of weight training. I work on my body a good 2-3 hours a day. I have to.
I’m so banged up now. I sacrificed a lot of my body in professional wrestling, and amateur wrestling. I have to blame both sports, not just one. I’m paying for it now, but I’m managing it.
I had a painkiller problem, and I kicked that 8 years ago. Not having painkillers anymore is really difficult, but I’m never going back to those, nor do I want to. I’m going to keep doing my body maintenance training, and doing what I’m doing right now.”
Angle suffered from a severe pain killer addiction in the past, which eventually led to his release from WWE in 2006, that resulted in him joining TNA.
Kurt retired in 2019 after losing his final match to Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35.
