Last Week, Kurt Angle underwent surgery for a tumor in his neck, and the surgery was a success at the time. Kurt was going to miss 4/6 weeks of action, and would’ve made the next set of TNA Tapings (Previous Article).
News came out last night that Kurt would have to undergo another surgery, due to complications in the original procedure. Angle’s management company, tweeting from his @RealKurtAngle twitter account said the following;
“Friends and Fan this is a message from Mr Angles Management. Yesterday while Mr Angle was preparing for his travel to the UK for Comic Con, he was experiencing sever pain, he lost feeling in his extremities, and starting to have some difficulty breathing. His wife, Giovanni, very concerned rushed him to the hospital, where doctors informed Kurt that his symptoms were the result of his recent surgery that left a large buildup of fluid on his spinal cord. Since the condition could be fatal, they immediately underwent emergency surgery to relieve the pressure on his spine. The surgery went well and doctors believe he will have a full recovery. Kurt apologies to his friends and fans that He will not be appearing at Comic Con in London this weekend as hoped. Kurt is doing well and we will keep you posted on his progress.”
As mentioned, Kurt Angle will miss London Comic Con due to the surgery, and there isn’t a time scheduled for his return at this time. It has been over twelve years since doctors first advised him to retire from physically wrestling, and it has been almost twenty years since he first broke his neck. We don’t need to tell you how important Kurt has been to both WWE and TNA in the previous years, but here is his momentous debut in TNA back in 2006;
