Kurt Angle Recalls How Brock Lesnar Broke His Neck



On a recent episode of his Kurt Angle Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle spoke about his third broken neck. It happened in late 2003 when Brock Lesnar hit Angle with a steel chair.

This injury caused Angle to miss about six weeks before returning to in-ring action at the Royal Rumble. He said,

“Well, what happened was Brock Lesnar hit me over the head with a chair, and he brought it. I mean, when I tell you he brought it, he really brought it. The thing is, me and Chris Benoit both got hit with a chair by Brock that night. Chris, before the match started, he told Brock, ‘Hey, swing sideways on my head because I had surgery on my neck, and I don’t want you to come over straight over the top.’”

“I didn’t tell Brock. So he hits Benoit sideways, and Benoit’s neck is okay. He goes over the top and hits me right on top of my head as hard as he could, and I broke — three broken vertebrae. I had bone chips in my neck, and I had two discs that slid into my spinal cord. So I kind of messed myself up again. This is the third time I broke my neck.”
