WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle is certainly one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever graced the squared circle. He has accomplished a lot in WWE as he won so many World Titles. Angle also provided an update on his condition after his surgery.

Kurt Angle’s body still suffered a lot due to his in-ring career and even now, he feels the effects. Kurt Angle would then undergo double knee replacement surgery.

While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show podcast (via AdFreeShows), Kurt Angle provided an update on his condition after knee surgery. Angle revealed he’s not doing much better.

“A week later, I’m not doing much better. It’s pretty brutal. Especially when you have both knees done at the same time. I never went through anything this difficult. I also have a little bit of a back problem so I can’t use my legs but I can’t use my back. So I’m pretty much useless. It’s pretty crazy. When I did the surgery, they found a screw in my left knee. Just hanging out in my knee socket. It’s pretty incredible. It must have been from my surgery 10 years ago, the ACL surgery I had on my left knee and the screw popped loose and was just hanging out in my knee socket. It was crazy.

Yeah, I started rehab the next day. They’re on you. They stay on you and want you to work through it. The more you do without injuring yourself the quicker you will heal. They’ve had me do a lot of rehab ever since I got out of the hospital. I go to a rehab facility three days a week over near my house and then the other four days I do five different sessions of rehab on my own. It’s a long process but hopefully, it will work out. It should and I’m very positive about this.

They’re trying to straighten my legs. That was a lot of the problem with my last knees. My knees, from all the injuries and everything, they stayed bent. It was wearing on my knees and that’s how I got arthritis in my knees because I couldn’t flex my quad anymore. So my quad was always on fire when I was walking. That put a lot of pressure on my knees, so that’s the reason why I had to have knee surgery because my legs won’t straighten out entirely and that’s what they’re trying to do now is straighten them out,

Angle was released from his role as WWE producer back in 2020 as part of the COVID-19 budget cuts. He also wants WWE to push Chad Gable more. We certainly hope Angle will feel better eventually.
