Kurt Angle's Complications Were Life Threatening, Underwent Emergency Surgery


CJ Blaze reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com (via a tweet from Dixie Carter) that Kurt Angle was set for another surgery today after complications from his recent neck operation. Angle has had the surgery and his management has updated on his status on his verified Twitter account. In serious situations such as this, the best way to update you is to provide the update released by his camp that you can read below (as opposed trying to re-write it):

Friends and Fan this is a message from Mr Angles Management. Yesterday while Mr Angle was preparing for his travel to the UK for Comic Con. He was experiencing sever pain, he lost feeling in his extremities, and starting to have some difficulty breathing. His wife, Giovanni, very concerned rushed him to the hospital, where doctors informed Kurt that his symptoms were the result of his recent surgery that left a large buildup of fluid on his spinal cord. Since the condition could be fatal, they immediately underwent emergency surgery to relieve the pressure on his spine. The surgery went well and doctors believe he will have a full recovery. Kurt apologies to his friends and fans that he will not be appearing at Comic Con in London this weekend as hoped. Kurt is doing well and we will keep you posted on his progress.

You can read the statement in its original format on Angle’s verified Twitter account. He was originally scheduled to miss a month after the initial surgery to remove the tumor and we’re not sure how the will impact his status going forward.
