During a recent episode of the Kurt Angle show, the Olympic Gold Medallist revealed why he started wearing the mouthpiece. He said;
“In 2004 or 2005, John Cena punched me in the mouth and knocked three of my teeth out, my three front teeth. I went to the dentist, and I had temporaries made, and I had to wear a mouthpiece. I wore the mouthpiece from there on.
“I had to go to my dentist to get a custom mouthpiece. My dentist would make them for me. He would take the molds of my mouth, make the mouthpiece, and make the color with the letters on it. They did everything, so I didn’t have to take it anywhere else. The dentist did it.”
