Kurt Angle Reveals Which WWE Match Caused The Most Pain He's Ever Experienced In Wrestling
"It was extremely painful. I never felt pain like that in my life."
Kurt Angle has revealed his broken tailbone, which he did in his match with Shane McMahon at WWE King Of The Ring 2001, is the most pain he has ever experienced in professional wrestling.
The now infamous Street Fight between Angle and McMahon saw both men sustain multiple injuries, with one of the most memorable moments coming as Angle threw McMahon through two panes of glass towards the entrance.
However, prior to that, Angle would be suplexed by McMahon on the concrete floor. The landing would see the Olympic Gold Medallist crack his tailbone, with Angle saying he has never felt pain like that before.
Speaking on The Kurt Angle Podcast he said: "I cracked my tailbone, it was extremely painful. I never felt pain like that in my life. It ran down my legs, I could barely stand up and I knew I had to finish the match but I wasn’t sure how I was going to do it. I was clueless how I was going to finish the match because it hurt so bad.
"Without a doubt, a 10 or 11, it was that painful. I never had pain like that, especially the way it ran down my legs. It grabbed a hold of my nerves that ran down my legs and it was just thumping the whole time.
"I couldn’t bend over, I had to stay standing up straight, my positioning was all messed up. I couldn’t really do much, I was supposed to carry Shane back to the ring after the glass spot and I couldn’t. Thank god I grabbed a cart to bring him back."
