David Hawk comments...

“It’s this crisis in his mind, thinking, ‘I’m not Kurt Angle anymore; I’m Kurt Angle, this character on TV,’” says David Hawk, Angle’s manager and close friend. “But Kurt Angle was real once ...

“He needs to prove it not to the world but to himself,” Hawk continued. “He wants to regain his youth, prove he’s still there and still has it.”

Kurt Angle comments...

“God has really shown me how to stay focused in these really horrible times of turmoil,” Angle says. “I think that I’ve used that as motivation. You can either step out of it, go beyond your expectations, or curl up into a shell and say, you know what? This happened, and this is my excuse. I’m not that kind of guy.”

“As far as being clean, I would not go to the Olympic trials and put myself in jeopardy to get tested positive," Angle says. “All I have to do is show up, take the drug test, it’ll show there’s nothing in my system.”

    If Kurt is serious about the olympics, then he's gotta take a break from TNA wrestling. He's going to get hurt again.

    I’ve held my tongue on this one for a long, long time, but wasn’t Kurt getting steroid (cortizone) shots in his neck so he could compete in the 1996 Olympics? With or without a prescription, he was still taking a PED then, and chances are he’s got prescriptions for PEDs now.

      getting a prescription for shots to his neck for the injury he sustained is a completely different than what happened with Johnson in 1988

  • Dangerous Lee

    It’s a known fact Olympic competitors use steroids or some form of it. they get around it somehow.

      yeah right they test not only for HGH steroids and other PED they also test for masking agents that are used the Olympic tests are VERY hard if not impossible to beat and they also test more than once u ever heard of a "B" sample?
