What is the origin story of the mouthpiece that Kurt Angle started wearing during matches in WWE?
Allow the WWE and IMPACT Wrestling Hall Of Fame legend himself to explain.
Featured below is an excerpt from a recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show podcast where the Olympic gold medalist talks about the origins of wearing a mouthpiece during his matches in WWE and where he had them made.
“In 2004 or 2005, John Cena punched me in the mouth and knocked three of my teeth out, my three front teeth. I went to the dentist, and I had temporaries made, and I had to wear a mouthpiece. I wore the mouthpiece from there on. I had to go to my dentist to get a custom mouthpiece. My dentist would make them for me. He would take the molds of my mouth, make the mouthpiece, and make the color with the letters on it. They did everything, so I didn’t have to take it anywhere else. The dentist did it.”
