Kurt Angle: "My daughter saved my life while I was drowning"

In his last words to the microphones of his Kurt Angle show, the WWE Hall of Famer wanted to tell how his daughter saved him once, going to pick him up in the water, because he was drowning. Regarding this frightening episode, Angle said: "Thank God my daughter is an Olympic level swimmer.

I had my life jacket on too, but it didn't work. I was drowning. I can not swim. So, I was in trouble. I couldn't stay afloat. I was going down, so she remained impassive and dropped the water skis and walked back towards me. Our boat was about 50 feet away from us and she immediately decided whether to stay with the boat or come to me and came over to rescue me without a second thought.

She pushed me up on my skis, swimming over 50m with me in her arms and pushed me to safety. I couldn't even keep afloat on skis. My arms were so sore from my neck, I couldn't keep afloat. So now she kept my ass afloat too and pushed me towards the boat, saving me.

She jumped at me from behind and I was like: You know what, honey? You just saved my life. You really did!" During the chat, Angle pointed out that his daughter was only 11 at the time of the events. Angle is unanimously recognized as one of the best wrestlers of all time and of all WWE eras.

The Mount Lebanon star has had a gigantic impact on this business, as well as having won the hearts of millions of fans in every corner of the planet. Angle is the only athlete in history to have been awarded the WWE Championship, World Heavyweight Championship, WCW World Heavyweight Championship, TNA World Heavyweight Championship and IWGP Third Belt Championship.

On top of that, he won a gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics in freestyle wrestling. Kurt has been inducted into both the IMPACT Hall of Fame and the WWE Hall of Fame, a testament to his greatness in the pro-wrestling world.

The former WWE Champion briefly returned on the August 29 episode of Monday Night Raw in his hometown of Pittsburgh to do some promos and angles in the evening, alongside the Street Profits, sending the fans of the arena and around the world.
