I never thought I’d see one of my favorites, Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle, released from the WWE. As the article says, I hope that in the future, they can re-establish a working relationship again. The thought of seeing him wrestle in ECW was a huge draw for me, and I’m disappointed I never got the chance, due to Global taking so long to pick the show up.
In a form of entertainment so many are quick to write off as “fake,” Kurt was definitely one guy who could really go, and I’ve always respected that.
Sounds like part of the problem may have been accumulated injuries, which Kurt worked through. As others have said, though, better he recover than for us to have another Dynamite Kid, Brian Pillman, or whoever you choose on our hands.
