Kurt Angle had the following to say to NDTV.com about those who call professional wrestling "fake." Below is what he had had to say:
"If one calls it fake, then it's an insult to the commitment of a pro wrestler," said Angle. "It is (an insult if you call it fake). It is rather pre-determined. We both know who the winners are going to be. It is one of the barbaric form of athletics I have done. In that ring, we wrestle on woods like this (points to the table in front). Imagine getting slammed on that. So, we have to learn how to avoid being injured when getting slammed. Pro Wrestling is the toughest I have ever done. I broke my neck four times, broke my arms, legs. I had a great career there and I am proud of it."
