Kurt Angle put his body through a lot of abuse during his pro wrestling career. Over half of it took place away from WWE. That is one of the reasons why his career was limited and he retired from in-ring competition last year.
While speaking to TKO, Angle revealed that since he got clean his body is breaking down. He doesn’t have painkiller assistance and he said it is a real struggle right now as his quality of life sucks.
“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. I had a painkiller addiction that I overcame about 6 years ago. You know, staying clean and struggling the way I have been, it’s very difficult.”
We hope that Kurt Angle is able to find something to help him. There are a ton of things that he has tried including stem cell therapy. At least he’s staying clean so he can focus on this portion of his life with a clear mind.
