Kurt Angle Says He’s Not Retiring, Talks Suffering a Concussion In WWE, His Health, More (Video)

– As seen below, Kurt Angle recently spoke with ESPN in the UK. Below are highlights:

His status:

“Wrestling has treated me very well. I had a great time in WWE, I had a great time in TNA. I’m very proud of my accomplishments, but I’m at a point in my life where, right now, family is more important, and it’s time for me to spend more time with them.”

“I’m gonna take a break from [professional] wrestling, I know that for sure, at least a year. So we’ll see how it goes and I’ll go from there. 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.”

His health:

“I feel it now [the injuries] … and I don’t regret anything I’ve done, in amateur wrestling or pro wrestling. I’m 47 years old and I have my pains and aches just like anybody else but the thing is, I can still go in that ring. I’m as good as anybody if not better. Even at 47, I’m at the top of my game, so the only thing I need is a little bit more time to recuperate, but other than that I can put on the five-star matches. So I’m not really concerned about my performance, I’m more concerned about how I’m gonna feel for the next 30, 40 years.”

Suffering a concussion at SummerSlam 2000 against Triple H:

“There was a spot where Triple H was going to hit me with his sledgehammer, but I had the concussion and didn’t even know I was out there. My mind was blank. I came to two hours after the pay-per-view. When Triple H was going to hit me, but he actually put his hand on my head and made sure I ducked. If you watch it over, you’ll see that I was clueless, but he was looking out for me the whole match. They literally had to walk me through every step of the match to make sure I was safe. I don’t remember any of it.”
