Kurt Angle To Undergo Neck Surgery In 2024 To Help Failing Motor Skills

Kurt Angle is set to go under the knife next year which he hopes will help with his failing motor skills, the WWE Hall of Famer has revealed.

On a recent edition of his “The Kurt Angle Show” podcast, the Olympian was asked if he plans to play drums again and revealed the details of his upcoming surgery. He said,

“Yes, I am. I’m not gonna lie to you, I’m gonna really suck at the beginning because my fingers, I have a lot of motor skill problems. But just so you know, I’m having neck surgery. The beginning of next year, they’re gonna put in artificial disc replacements. It’s gonna help [my hands] because I can’t really grab things. Things always slip out of my hands and fall. I have horrible motor skills.

“They said my arms, because they atrophied three inches each. I don’t have any muscle here [between my thumb and my fingers]. There’s supposed to be muscle there, but it deteriorated, it atrophied. When I get these rubber discs, they’re gonna open up my nerves so they can go down my arms, so I’ll have better circulation.”

The former WWE & Impact Wrestling World Champion competed for the last time in a losing effort to Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 in April 2019.
