Default Angle's Neck In Bad Shape

Many in the WWE are questioning if Kurt Angle will ever be able to meet the demands of a full time schedule again.

Unfortunately, Angle's neck continues to deteriorate and it is expected that further surgery will be performed sometime after WrestleMania XX.

Angle has been told that he will have to remove some of the harsher moves he uses when he returns in January. Angle's renowned suplexes are definitely one of his moves that will be using less often.

At this point, even after the surgery and one-year recovery period, he will probably not be able to handle a full time working schedule.

entirely bad news......Angle had the opportunity to be one of the greatest of all time.....now it appears as though he will have a severely shortened career, or at least he won't be able to put on the same show.....that bums me out.....

Angle looks to be going in the same direction like Austin, if these neck promblems continue Angle will probably have to retire

Truly bad news, if he has to retire at least he had more of an oppertunity then Magnum. He can say he was a world champion, and that has to make him feel good. Most likly he will do the same that Magnum did and be included in storylines and commmentate some. I really like Angle, and always wanted to see him wrestle outside of the WWE, i guess that will never happen, at this point.

The following is from WWE.com:

Recent reports suggesting that Kurt Angle will never again be able to compete full time in WWE are false, the Olympic gold medalist told WWE.com on Monday.

“That’s not even close,” Angle said in a phone interview. “I don’t know where they came up with that. I’m hoping to be back on a full schedule in mid-January. I don’t know where that came from, but that’s not in the plans. I’m coming back full-schedule. I already talked to J.R. (Jim Ross) and Johnny (Laurinaitis, of WWE’s Talent Relations Department). So that’s all rumors.”

Angle said he’s much improved since having surgery on Nov. 18 to remove bone spurs in his spine, although he said it took him much longer to recover compared to his first surgical procedure, just after WrestleMania XIX in March, with his Pittsburgh-based surgeon, Dr. Hae-Dong Jho. Angle said he regained full strength just four days after the first surgery, whereas it has taken his body about six weeks this time. “But it wasn’t even that bad,” Angle said. “It was 95 percent strength. I just wanted to be 100 percent.”

The 1996 freestyle wrestling gold medalist added, “I’m feeling really good. Dr. Jho doesn’t want to release me for a couple more weeks. He wants to be more safe than sorry, so he’s going to let my neck heal a couple of more weeks.”

The infuriating blood clot on Angle’s neck that swelled to the size of a large orange has finally gone away. It got so bad that it started affecting Angle’s breathing, and he was taken to an emergency room by his wife, Karen. Physicians at the E.R. didn’t want to drain the clot for fear it would become infected; essentially, they just told him to be patient and it would go away, and they sent him home. About four days later, it started to subside, and now, it’s finally disappeared. Angle said the clot probably developed because he was overly active in the days following his surgery – playing with his daughter, he joked.

Although Angle was not able to be a part of Thursday’s SmackDown! special from Baghdad, he did recently tour the Middle East on a USO (United Service Organization) trip with actor/comedian Robin Williams, NASCAR driver Mike Wallace and Gen. Richard B. Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Angle spent a week there – visiting Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan and other places – hanging out with troops on 19 bases, often traveling five hours to get to them. He would start at 7:30 in the morning and continue each night until 11.

“But it was well worth it,” Angle said. “I’m very privileged to be able to do it. I probably would have done it even if I was still wrestling. I probably would have just done the (SmackDown!) show right after it. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Angle said that at one point he was literally 100 feet from prison where forces were keeping Saddam Hussein; Angle was actually in the area when Saddam was captured, so he got to see the troops’ morale improve first-hand. It no doubt helped that Williams was on the tour. Angle called Williams “definitely the funniest guy I’ve ever met.”

He said of the “Patch Adams” and “Mrs. Doubtfire” star, “He’s just a really giving, caring person. He went over there not to promote anything, but just to be there for the soldiers. … He was over there to show his appreciation for the soldiers, nothing more, nothing less.”

The former WWE Champion did get home in time to celebrate Christmas with his wife and 1-year-old daughter, Kyra. Angle said his wife must be a mind-reader because she got her husband exactly what he needed – including a neck massager. Meanwhile, the Angle family bought baby Kyra with everything she would ever need or want.

“My daughter got a lot of things,” Angle said with a chuckle. “I was even surprised because Christmas morning we must’ve opened her presents for two hours.”

maybe its not so bad after all.....
