WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle spoke with Addiction Professional on his struggle, his addiction and his road to getting clean.
The Olympic Hero's thoughts on the Wellness Policy in WWE:
“WWE has a great wellness policy now. You have to pass physicals through WWE doctors, not your own. But back then, I was convincing my doctor to get me back as soon as possible. As long as you were cleared by a doctor in 2003, WWE was OK with it. Now, they have their own doctors you have to go through. I rushed back in there long before I should have. That was my own fault, talking my doctor into clearing me.”
On Vince McMahon offering help in '05
“I thought I was a liability to that company, and I think he felt that way. He was trying to help me, and I didn’t want his help.”
