In an interview with the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast (via Fightful), Kurt Angle spoke about how he’s doing following double knee replacement surgery and said that he will never be able to wrestle again. Here are highlights:

On his decision to have the surgery: “Well, you know, usually you have one at a time because it’s — you’re gonna be destabilized. So with me, the thing is, I wanted to get them out of the way. I just wanted to get them done and move forward with my life and not have to worry about the other down the road. I can walk around. I’m still in a lot of pain, though.”

On never wrestling again: “My knees were shot. I had to have them done. I didn’t have a choice. Now with the knee replacements, no. I’m not going to mess these knees up. I have no idea, I don’t. I’m not going to try. No.”
