An article titled “What Happened To?” focusing on past Olympic gold medal winners was run on ESPN.com recently and featured a bit on Kurt Angle. In the article, Kurt claims that at the high point of his drug addiction, he was taking 12 to 16 painkillers every three hours. Angle said he quit all pain pills in 2005 and hasn’t taken a one since. The article also mentions that Angle recently filmed four episodes as host of “Caught in the Action,” a cross between Punk’d and Candid Camera, which is being produced by Spike TV. The article also notes that he tried to strike a deal with NBC to do the wrestling commentary at the Olympics, but they chose 2000 Olympics star Rulon Gardner instead.
It is being reported by the Wrestling Observer that Kevin Nash is slated to feud with Samoa Joe for the Heavyweight title in September or late August.
