Prowrestling.net has snippets of an interview from Philly.com with Kurt Angle, where Angle admits to using steroids during his time in WWE. I know, consider me as shocked as you.
“Have I used steroids before?” Angle rhetorically asked. “Yes, I have, after I broke my neck and lost three inches in this arm and 21/2 in the other from loss of circulation.
“But I paid the price, both financially – I got fined $125,000 – and reputation-wise,” he says. “I was a pure athlete, an Olympic champion. And all of a sudden, I’m like Kurt Angle the cheater? It really sucked. You can test me right now. I’ll come up clean.”
Says the guy who was found gargling with prescription pills while driving barely more than a year ago. Clean of steroids? Probably. Clear of various scripts and whatever whore diseases he’s picked up along the way from his wife’s indiscretions and his own booty calls? Highly unlikely. This guy’s hospital chart could be an American Medical Supply book on its own. This is all speculation, by the way, but whatever. This guy was on death watch in 2006. The more he pickles himself, the better. (See: Roberts, Jake.) -Eric
