Kurt Angle is back to being a regular fixture on WWE programming as the General Manager of Monday Night Raw, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be back in the ring.
Kurt Angle revealed during a Talk is Jericho that he is suffering from some lasting nerve damage due to his lingering injuries and that he doesn’t have nearly the upper body strength he used to.
Angle shared with Chris Jericho that he can now only bench press 185 pounds which is a fraction of what he could normally lift. It is also a minimal amount of weight for someone his size.
Kurt Angle also explained that he actually considered an MMA run, but at this point in his career he decided against it.
Angle said he wouldn’t have been able to adequately defend himself given his current health situation.
