Kurt Angle Says He Can’t Feel His Pinky Fingers Due To Nerve Damage



WWE/Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is struggling after a lengthy career in the ring and has claimed to have lost feeling in his pinky fingers.

While appearing on a recent episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Angle spoke at length about the health issues caused by his years in the ring. He said,

I always had problems with my motor skills in my hands. I broke my neck four more times in the WWE and it got worse and worse. I mean, I have nerve damage in my neck. I lost three inches in both arms and they atrophied because my neck was just so messed up. I’ve had five surgeries and none of them have really worked. I’m going to end up having to have fusion which will be down the line.”

“I can’t feel my pinky fingers. I have a lot of atrophy in my arms. I don’t have a lot of strength. I can curl for like 20-pound dumbbells. When I do triceps, I can only push the weights about 60 pounds forward. I don’t have a lot of strength in my upper body. If you look at my chest right here, you’ll see there’s a dip here. That’s from my neck.

“That’s a nerve that died and no longer have this muscle on my chest. I have a complete ripple through my chest. It will never come back and I’m afraid it’s gonna happen again, so I’m going to have to have a fusion sooner than later because if I don’t, the damage is gonna get worse and worse and then my arms are gonna end up shrinking to nothing.”

“I have nerves that are being pinched and they’re not being able to flow down my arms so my fingers are freezing cold. They’re always cold. I don’t have any circulation. This is all extra skin because of what the size my arms used to be. I’m barely making it right now. My arms are 15 inches now. They used to be 18 or 19 inches. I’m struggling right now.”

Earlier this month, Angle disclosed that he requires shoulder surgery and has previously spoken about his quality of life suffering due to his career.
