Kurt Angle and his Intriguing Life

Fans of the WWE are no stranger to Kurt. After all, the man is a legend, former champion, and Hall Of Fame inductee. John Cena, one of the biggest and most renowned stars in the world made his WWE debut against Angle.

In his time in the WWE, Kurt had a total of 13 honors over a period of 8 years. If that wasn’t enough, he also gathered 7 more honors during his brief stint in the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling ( TNA Impact). At one point, he was even approached by Dana White to fight in the UFC as well.

Whilst Kurt’s life was filled with accolades and achievements, he also had a history of injuries. Throughout his career, he was plagued with injuries to his neck and spine. As a result, he had to decline Dana White’s lucrative offers and instead signed on with TNA Impact for the sake of his health.

Kurt revealed later, however, that if he could, he would have signed for both the UFC and TNA Impact. Maybe had his career not been filled with repetitive injuries, we might have seen Kurt in the UFC. But how would he have fared in the Octagon? I guess we’ll never know.
