    Matt hardy: “go F*** yourself dixie. kurt gets 4 chances including when he was world champ and im gone after one time….. are you banging him.” in all seriousness though i do wish kurt the best

  • pwnez

    I’m glad the TNA family is supportive of Kurt Angle. It’s a shame they didn’t feel the same way about Jesse Sorensen.

      or daffney or matt hardy (cant blame them on that one though) or crimson

      or Zema Ion or Daffney

      They did just fine by Jesse Sorenson. They kept him on the payroll for many months? A year and a half? As a highly paid production assistant..much higher paid than any other production assistant. They waited until he was healthy enough to ask them if he could start accepting indy dates. At that point TNA officials likely realized ok,.. if he is asking about working indy dates then obviously he thinks he can go in the ring. If thats the case then he can take care of himself. Time to cut him loose. Lets face it.. they need to protect themselves. If he wants to wrestle then let him go wrestle. They don’t want him hurting himself again while in their employ.

        common sense doesn’t go over so well here…
        you are 100% correct tho

  • Roger Penland

    William Shakespeare could not have written a better tragedy than that of TNA’s downfall.

    So it continues.

    in all seriousness, I wish the best for Angle. My 29 year old Marine brother just got out of a military-sponsored rehab for alcoholism. I know how it can affect someone.

  • Adam-Michael

    I wonder if this weak clueless woman will be asking WWE to give him rehab as TNA don’t look after their own talent whatsoever

  • harvey

    I will keep the people he(Angle) may potentially damage or kill in my prayers if he keeps up with the drunken texting & driving

  • Jamie

    You don’t need rehab, you just need to not drive after you’ve had too much to drink, it’s that simple!

    • Derringer Duo

      Nah, he needs rehab. If you get busted for DWI twice, that means you probably drink alot. Think of all the times he didn’t get caught and the times he drinks, but doesn’t drive. He’s a main guy, he doesn’t need to rehab to save his job. He probably knows he needs it.

      • Jamie

        Yea but most people drink and they know not to get in a car, that’s all he need to learn.

  • killatheninja

    Yeah why not be supportive of a guy that makes ratings and made it huge in wwf/e at one time…Yeah dixie cares.

    • Kris Mystery

      I have no idea what your comment is supposed to mean.

      • Progressed_Now

        use Google Translate, english to english. if you still don’t get it then go back to kindy.

  • Ted Gal

    one wrestrel who broke his neck working for your company got fire other one who got drunk getting help WTF DIXIE!!!!!!

  • Chris

    I thought the Headbangers were bad, those Mafia guys are out of control.

  • Randy Ragsdale

    Well, I for one can respect the fact that TNA Wrestling is standing behind Kurt Angle in his effort to want to get clean, and I don’t think that battling addiction is anything to poke fun at. Get well soon Kurt.

    • Progressed_Now

      they sang the same tune when the Sorensen babe got injured………and where is he now?

  • Noach

    The main event for TNAs next PPV should be a ladder match between Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle with a giant pill box hanging over the ring. As an added twist make it a modified strap match with them handcuffed to each other.
