TNA star Kurt Angle was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery to relieve fluid accumulation on his spinal cord just one week after undergoing a successful procedure to remove a benign tumour from his neck.
His management provided the following information on his Twitter account regarding the condition of the six-time TNA global heavyweight champion and the circumstances leading up to the procedure:

The angle provided an update on Instagram after having neck surgery last week and was optimistic about his health:
After rumours of a possible departure from the organisation, where he spent the first eight years of his professional wrestling career, the 1996 Olympic gold medallist in freestyle wrestling re-signed with it in December.
The 46-year-old veteran attempted to negotiate a prospective contract with WWE, but Paul “Triple H” Levesque decided against bringing him in, according to Justin Barrasso of SI.com
Angle returned to TNA, where he remains one of the company’s top draws due to WWE’s lack of interest.
Angle lost the world championship to Ethan Carter III, probably partly because he had to take time off for neck surgery. However, Angle’s future is now much less certain after the spinal cord scare.
Although his management stated that the physicians are confident in Angle’s ability to make a full recovery, recovering from anything this serious at the age of 46 may be quite challenging.
The main priority going ahead should be Angle’s health, and whether or not his wrestling career is about to come to an end, he will always be remembered as one of the all-time greats.
