A great read and for me after reading it I want Angle to quit. He has had a great run but in his current condition I am worried about him. The guy just has an amazing desire to be the best in the world and the best of all time, I just hope it doesnt cost him his well being.

Wow, I had no idea Angle couldn't hear in his left ear. The article really puts in perspective why he is such a natural at the sport. Kurt debuted during in 99-00, a time that no one thought a "real wrestler" like him would get over so fast. Slapped with an "American Hero" gimmick and he was one of the most over people in the WWF within a matter of months. He's a natural.

"I'm sorry, but put Triple H in the ring with me for two minutes and he'll get eaten alive."

So very true.

Angle's deafness, nerve damage, and a few of those other injuries he got before he ever stepped into a pro ring, so he wasn't exactly in top shape to begin with.

Remember, he won the gold medal with a broken freakin' neck.

You think WWE now is bad? Some of us had to live through 1993-1996!

I think Edge told that story about Kurt injuring himself in the Nashville hotel room in one of his columns. He found Kurt naked and bleeding in the hallway, wondering what the hell happened to him.

Man... Sounds like the "sickness" Roddy Piper talked about, only without the drug addiction. I always knew the guy was a machine, but damn! Hopefully (for his own sake and his family's) he'll decide enough is enough.

Two hours later they decided to stop at a diner
Because they loved the smell of eggs and coffee
I just had to smoke a cigarette and wear a hat
By the time that they set off again, the sun was starting to set
It made the sky look red like a nuclear ray
One of them said "what do you want more than anything
in this whole wide world
Do you want money, do you want sex, or do you want all that success?"
I thought about that one myself
(Then they came upon the thing)

Angle mentions this in his book. His ear fills with fluid to the point where he can't hear beacuse of his amateur wrestling days, he said he had many surguries to drain the fluid, close to 100 I believe, and eventually he got sick of having the surguries and let the fluid harden and he is now completely deaf in his left ear.

He actually told a very funny story about this problem while during the Armageddon Hell in a Cell match, he and Rock were on the outside of the ring and Rock told Angle to throw him into the ring. Angle at the time had his deaf ear turned to the Rock and kept saying ''What?'', they exhanged this afew times until eventually Rock grabbed Angles head and screaded at him ''Throw me in the damn ring!!''.

I rememebr telling my friend this story and popping the tape in and watching the match and it was fricken hilarious! We mimed what they were saying to each other so if you have the tape watch it again and wait till Angle and Rock are tangling with each other on the outside of the ring on the far side.

Kurt, I love watching you in the ring. And I admire your committment to perfecting your craft.

But retire. Please. You don't owe the wrestling fans anything anymore-- you've already given us so much.

The next time we see him in a wheelchair, it might be for real-- and I don't think anyone wants to see that.

I think Angle can still be useful to WWE as a manager or personality-- maybe even as an announcer. But he is going to hurt himself-- badly-- if he continues wrestling.
