Kurt Angle has been hurting alot more than usual as of late. He has been a company soldier by working through the UK tapings this past week even though he’s having more neck, back, and knee issues. Kurt also has been losing feeling in one of his hands. The feeling among people that know Kurt is that he really needs to stay away from wrestling. There was an angle done at one of the tapings to write Kurt out of the storylines after he was beaten by a chair.
The next day TNA called Kurt back to work and that’s when Kurt got livid, specifically at John Gaburick who is handling creative for the company. The reason for Kurt being angry is because he’s been working these shows even though the company has known that doctors told Kurt that he shouldn’t be doing anything physical before his upcoming knee surgery.
To make things worse, TNA filmed an angle that seems to indicate an upcoming match at Lockdown between Ethan Carter III against Kurt Angle. Angle was not originally on the advertising for the Lockdown pay per view because he had told the company he was getting knee surgery. Needless to say, the relationship between Kurt and the company is strained right now and the expectation from WWE’s side is that he will return to to WWE when his TNA deal runs out. WWE expects to have Kurt back as a trainer for the company which I think would be best for Kurt’s health.
