In an interview with ESPN held during the TNA UK tour last month but published yesterday, Kurt Angle revealed that he had a concussion on the first night of TNA’s Maximum Impact tour in Manchester.
Doctors however cleared the former champion to compete over the next two nights and perform his final two matches with the company on a tour that was billed as the Kurt Angle farewell tour.
“I’m healthy, I don’t have any problems. You have injuries, you’re gonna have injuries in wrestling. Everybody does,” Angle told ESPN.
He said that wrestling treated him very well and had a great time in WWE and in TNA however at this point in his life, family is more important to him and that’s why he’s taking a break from professional wrestling at least for a year.
“I’m not gonna say I’m gonna retire. I am pretty much done with TNA. Not sure, maybe down the road, maybe I might come back, but most likely I probably won’t, because there’s a chance that I might not wrestle again. I just wanna get a feeler this year and see what I wanna do and see where I wanna go,” Angle concluded.
