WWE Hall of Famer and current RAW General Manager Kurt Angle held a Facebook Q&A session with the wrestling fans, where he answered questions from WWE fans.
“Q: David Samuel- Do you have any regrets at all in leaving WWE for TNA earlier in your career??
A: Kurt Angle I can’t. I had a great career in TNA, maybe better than my WWE career. I had a reduced schedule there. And I wrestled so many greats AJ, Joe, Sting, Roode…To name a few. My body couldn’t hold up to the rigorous schedule in WWE at the time. I always imagine the career I could have had if I stayed in WWE. It would have been incredible. BUT I couldn’t stay so I can’t keep asking myself “what if”?”
Kurt Angle addicted to the painkillers, and he was suffering a lot mentally throughout his career in the WWE. The wrestlers had to travel 200 days a year leaving their family behind, and they have bruises and body pains for months.
