There has been a promising health update regarding WWE Hall of Famer and Olympic gold medal winner Kurt Angle.
Angle recently appeared on the Friday December 9 edition of SmackDown, where he teamed up with Gable Steveson to get his own back on heel team Alpha Academy.
The two recreated Angle’s famous “milk bath” segment from the gold medal winner’s early days as a professional wrestler.
Speaking on his podcast The Kurt Angle Show, Angle reflected on the success of a recent knee surgery he underwent:
“It’s six and a half months from the surgery, and I’m almost fully recovered. It usually takes 9 to 12 months, but I’m there. I’m really happy.
“My legs are stronger now than they were before surgery. They don’t want me to run yet.
“Probably in another month or two, I’ll start running again, but I’m not allowed to run very far. I can’t run more than two miles.”
Angle retired from in-ring competition at WrestleMania 35, where he was defeated by Baron Corbin.
He has suggested in recent years that he could be persuaded to wrestle one more match, likely as part of a tag team, to round out his career.
