Former WWE Superstar Kurt Angle recently spoke with The News-Democrat. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On what he considers to be the biggest accomplishment of his career:
“I get asked that question quite often. What was the single greatest achievement of my career? Was it winning the WWE title? Was it winning the TNA heavyweight championship? No, it was winning the Olympic Gold medal. It defined my career. It defined my life,” Angle said. “Aside from being a dad four times with a fifth one on the way, it’s the highlight.”
On why he is taking time off from wrestling this year:
“Wrestling professionally is a great life, but it’s also a very grueling and demanding lifestyle we as wrestlers go through. I mean we’re on the road constantly, doing between 250 to 300 shows each year. Hitting the mat as much as we do, it takes its toll on us physically.
“That’s why I said, I’m taking this year off to let my body rest and heal.”
