Kurt Angle on Who He Wants to Induct Him into Hall of Famer
Kurt Angle was recently interviewed on The LAW: Live Audio Wrestling on a number of topics, including his upcoming WWE Hall of Fame induction of which he was asked who will be inducting him, he responded:
“I was going to lose my family, I was going to lose my beautiful wife, Giovanna and my kid. I knew after my fourth DUI in five years. Once you’re addicted to a drug and you pull back on that drug, you start going to other drugs and what I did was I started taking anxiety medication so I wouldn’t take as many painkillers. Then, I started taking both of those and I started drinking alcohol and I was mixing all three. I got very careless, I was in the lowest point of my life in 2010, 11, 12, 13. I had four DUI’s in five years. I called my wife from jail and she said listen, you have to go to rehab, if you don’t go to rehab, I have to leave you, I love you but I can’t stay with you. That was my lowest point, calling my beautiful wife that I just married a year prior and her telling me she’s going to leave me if I don’t go to rehab.”
