Although he was always presented as the clean-cut American hero, Angle has had quite the personal turmoil over the last several years. He has been arrested on multiple occasions for driving while intoxicated; he went through a very messy divorce and reportedly failed a wellness test right before his departure from the WWE.
In a peculiar move, Angle announced in 2011 that he was going to attempt to make the US Olympic Wrestling team, even though he hadn't wrestled as an amateur in 15 years and was 42 years old at the time. He didn't make the team of course; he had to withdraw due to a knee injury, costing him a chance to represent his country that might not have even been there at all.
Angle's questionable personal life however, shouldn't deter the fact that he is easily one of the most talented wrestlers of all-time. His trademark intensity is second to none and he resides with Taz, Brock Lesnar and Chris Benoit on the Mt. Rushmore of suplex artists. His career in both WWE and TNA has been exceptionally amazing and maddeningly frustrating. His career is almost over and when he is gone, we might not ever see someone like Kurt Angle ever again. Whatever he decides to do in the future, whether he stays in TNA or heads north to the WWE for one final run, he will always remain entertaining, polarizing and damn good at what he does.
