Kurt Angle appeared this morning on Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA
this morning discussing a number of different topics to help promote tomorrow’s
house show in Indiana, PA.
Angle noted that TNA is doing very well. He said he came to TNA
when he decided to “walk away for a little while” from the WWE’s strenuous
schedule. He said the wrestlers in TNA go hard and get really physical in the
Angle said that professional wrestling is really hard and
difficult. Angle noted that he broke his neck five times – four times while
competing as an amateur wrestler and four times as a professional wrestler,
which he called “bad luck.” He said he hasn’t had neck issues for years
Angle noted he just booked a film with Marisa Tomei and
Christopher Walken that he will be shooting next month. He described it as
something of a sequel to the 1970s film “Every Which Way But Loose.”
Angle said that his Olympic gold medal was the highlight of his
career. This led to a discussion of the death of his former coach David Shultz
at the hands of John du Pont, which will be the subject of the feature film
“Foxcatcher” later this year. There was also discussion of saving wrestling as
an Olympic sport, which he said he only had a small bit to do with.
