A WWE Hall of Famer gets unparalleled popularity but on the cost of fatal injuries and damages they sustain during their wrestling career. One similar instance is recently reported by the former professional wrestler, Kurt Angle, who is suffering from memory loss.
Watch the video from WWE Summerslam 2000, where Kurt Angle suffered concussion in the early stages of the triple threat match against Triple H and The Rock. Angle sustained an injury when Triple H attempted his signature move, Pedigree on the table. However, the table broke mid-move and caused a brain injury to Kurt Angle.
14-time professional wrestling world champion Kurt Angle has revealed on his podcast The Kurt Angle Show that he suffered four major concussions during his wrestling tenure that damaged his brain severely.
Angle said, "I would say I probably had four concussions that I know of. Major. One was a slight concussion that wasn't too bad. The other three were pretty bad. But, you know, even to this day, I'm starting to not remember things, you know, and I'm only in my early 50s.
"But, I've gotten a little damage to my brain, there's no doubt about it. You know, my memory is not that great anymore. I really have to think hard about remembering the past."
