Recently, WWE legend Kurt Angle revealed that he has already participated in his last ever professional wrestling match. In a recent podcast interview, Kurt Angle explained why he decided to have both of his knee replacement surgeries done at once instead of getting it done one at a time. Angle continued by dispelling rumors that he would enter the ring again and announcing that he had competed in his final match.
Kurt Angle stated that his decision is meant to improve his quality of life. As a result, he would not try to take the chance of risking his knees by returning to the ring.
Kurt said, “Well, you know, usually you have one at a time because it’s — you’re gonna be destabilized. So with me, the thing is, I wanted to get them out of the way. I just wanted to get them done and move forward with my life and not have to worry about the other down the road. I can walk around. I’m still in a lot of pain, though. My knees were shot. I had to have them done. I didn’t have a choice. Now with the knee replacements, no. I’m not going to mess these knees up. I’m not going to try. No.”
