In Kurt Angle’s latest podcast on AdFreeShows.com, Angle covered the career of Jason Jordan, who now works as a backstage producer in WWE.

Then you can’t feel your arm and you don’t have motor skills with one arm or both arms, depending on whether “they slide both ways.

“He’s done a fantastic job as a producer. He’s found his calling. Don’t get me wrong, he would have been a great professional wrestler, a WWE superstar. But his calling is definitely producing. He’s really good at this domain.”

“He has issues to this day. His motor skills, his hands, are on and off all the time. He just can’t ever be right. I don’t know why that’s happening with him, because with me at least, I was sometimes relieved. With him, he was never relieved. He has really struggled with it for years.
