That’s a serious one. There are all kinds of injuries in wrestling and absolutely no one is immune to them. Some of them are more serious than others, but at the same time they can all come from different places. An injury can happen all at once or be built up over time, either of which can cause all kinds of problems. The latter is the case with a certain legend and it isn’t going well.

During the most recent edition of the Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle revealed that he is having issues with his neck, which is causing him various health issues. Angle mentioned that he is having motor skill issues in his hands and numbness in his arms. While he has had various quick fix surgeries before, Angle said that he is going to need to have full neck fusion surgery to fix the issue for good. Angle has had neck issues for years and last had neck surgery in 2015.

Angle has been around the wrestling world with his bad neck. Check out what he can do either healthy or banged up:

FULL MATCH - Kurt Angle vs. Brock Lesnar - WWE Title Match: SummerSlam 2003

FULL MATCH - Kurt Angle vs. The Rock – WWE Title Match: WWE No Way Out 2001

Kurt Angle and Ric Flair Go Face-To-Face

Opinion: This is hardly the biggest surprise as Angle is the kind of wrestler who has done so many things over the years that he has broken down. You can only do so much for so long and that has caught up with him. Thankfully Angle is done in the ring (at least in theory) so he can have the surgery and be done with everything. I’m not sure if he will, but at least he can try.

What is your favorite Angle match? Was he better in WWE or Impact Wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
