Kurt Angle Says He Used to Take 65 Vicodin Per Day

Former WWE and TNA star Kurt Angle was recently interviewed by Dan Le Batard, and you can check out some highlights from the interview here:

On abusing Vicodin during the height of his career:

“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.”

On getting four DUI’s in only 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.”

    Exactly bro that’s what I’m saying. Dude would be foaming at the mouth now

    It takes about 90mg of Hydrocodone to overdose which is equivalent to 18 Vicodin. Granted everyone’s body chemistry is different, but I call BS on this.

    I want to hear him say he took 65 a day out of his own mouth. I’m pretty sure he would have been dead a long time ago if he was taking 65 a day on a consistent basis.
