Kurt Angle Talks Taking 65 Vicodin A Day, Getting Four DUIs In Five Years

Dan Le Batard recently wrapped up a great interview with former WWE and TNA star Kurt Angle, and you can check out some of the highlights here:

Kurt talks about taking as much as 65 extra-strength Vicodin a day:

"I was on a lot -- there was no way I couldn't get out of it," the 47 year-old-said via phone call on Friday morning's show. "The only thing I could do was eventually go to rehab and try to fix my life again. But I actually beat it on my own. I stayed in my house for about 10 days and didn't leave, and I was able to get through the withdrawal."

Getting four DUIs in five years:

"The thing is, everybody drank down there [in TNA]," said Angle. "So I started drinking with my meds. And then I started manipulating my meds. I would save all of them until the evening, and drink it with alcohol. And it got me in a lot of trouble -- four DUIs in five years."

Angle also talks about his experience in rehab, leaving TNA, his lighter work schedule, and more in the full article which you can read at this link.
