Everyone knows Kurt Angle won a gold medal — with a broken freakin’ neck!
The WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke about his famous broken neck and how he dealt with the issues throughout his WWE career during a recent interview with Fightful.
Featured below is an excerpt where he touches on this topic.
“Well, you know, I damaged my neck in the Olympics—right before the Olympics. But, when I went to the WWE, my neck was still damaged. Once you break your neck, it’s not gonna be 100% forever. It’s just the way it is and I kept getting injured over and over again in WWE. I broke my neck four more times between 2003 and 2006. That had a lot to do with the injury that I started off with. So, it just kept happening over and over again.”
