WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has discussed how he is starting to struggle with memory issues following a wrestling career that saw him suffer several concussions.
Kurt Angle has a long pro wrestling career that stretches back to his WWE debut in the late nineties. Prior to that Angle made his name on the amateur mats, achieving the holy grail of the sport in 1996 when he captured the Olympic gold medal in Atlanta, GA.
For almost twenty years, Kurt Angle tore it up with the great and the good of the pro wrestling world as he battled the likes of Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H, Sting, The Undertaker, and Samoa Joe between both WWE and TNA.
Now speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Angle has explained how a lifetime of bumps is now catching up with him in a worrying way:
“I would say I probably had four concussions that I know of. major. One was a slight concussion that wasn’t too bad. The other three were pretty bad. But, you know, even to this day, I’m starting to not remember things, you know, and I’m only in my early 50s.”
“But, I’ve gotten a little damage to my brain, there’s no doubt about it. You know, my memory is not that great anymore. I really have to think hard about remembering the past.”
A former WWE Superstar recently explained how memory issues stopped them from making their own return to the ring.
