WWE Hall of Famer and former WWE Champion Kurt Angle took part in a Q&A session on his Facebook page and during it, he talked about a wide range of topics.
During the Q&A, Angle was asked about when he realized it was time to retire from in-ring competition under the WWE banner.
“I knew I was ready to retire because I felt my body moving slower and I had a lot of joint pain. I was ok until I turned 48. Because I was GM of Raw, I was less active in the past 2 years. That inactivity caught up with me. I started getting arthritis throughout my body. It was quite sad. I was invincible for so many years. It was tough to deal with. But I’m ok with it now.”
Angle lost to Baron Corbin in his farewell match at the WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium on the WWE Network.
