As reported on earlier, Kurt Angle revealed to the live audience at the TNA Impact Wrestling taping on Saturday night in Orlando that he has been diagnosed with a tumor in his neck and will need to undergo surgery soon.

The same report indicated that Angle had been aware of the tumor for around a year. It has now been revealed that the tumor in Angle’s neck is benign and it was only recently starting to cause muscle atrophy issues requiring him to take care of it.

His announcement will air on Destination America in early August.
