The following is an excerpt from an article on Kurt Angle in the Missourian:
Although he is back after a short break in which he remained on WWE as Smackdown's general manager, Angle knows the [neck] injury affects his future
"My neck will never be 100 percent healed," Angle said. "God willing, I can continue to be in this business another two to three years."
Long enough, he hopes, to become considered one of the best in the business.
According to Angle, the career of professional wrestlers can last 10 to 12 years if they are lucky and are not knocked out by falling popularity or
injuries, neither which are hard to come by in the WWE.
"We're risking our bodies on everything that we do," Angle said. "The fans' expectations are so high that if we don't give it to them they're
disappointed. We're putting our bodies on the line for the fans."
