During a recent appearance on the “Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle commented on his decision to undergo double knee replacement surgery and why he’ll never be able to wrestle again because of it.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On his decision to have the surgery: “Well, you know, usually you have one at a time because it’s — you’re gonna be destabilized. So with me, the thing is, I wanted to get them out of the way. I just wanted to get them done and move forward with my life and not have to worry about the other down the road. I can walk around. I’m still in a lot of pain, though.”
On never wrestling again: “My knees were shot. I had to have them done. I didn’t have a choice. Now with the knee replacements, no. I’m not going to mess these knees up. I have no idea, I don’t. I’m not going to try. No.”
