Report: Kurt Angle Flips Out To TNA Management, Working Despite Doctor’s Orders

Posted by Matt Boone February 3, 2014 6 Comments

TNA star Kurt Angle was scheduled to undergo surgery in late January, however with Jeff Hardy and Sting not going on the company’s U.K. tour, Angle’s surgery was pushed back so that he could fill-in on the tour.

During the television taping in Glasgow, Scotland this past week, an angle was shot that saw Angle get beat down with steel chairs, which was seemingly the company’s way of writing him out of the storylines. The following day in Manchester, Angle was told by the TNA creative team that he was scheduled to do a run-in segment. Angle reportedly flipped out as a result, as he had already been written out of storylines and because he had been working despite doctor’s orders not to.

John Gaburick was said to be the one that Angle flipped out to, and in the end, Angle did not work the taping that night in Manchester.

Angle did his Hall Of Fame induction the next day in London, and set up a probable Lockdown match against Ethan Carter III. As a result, it appears that TNA is expecting Angle to work the pay-per-view without having the surgery he needs.

      First Styles, then Punk, and now Angle? I’m probably tin foil hat crazy and ignoring reason, but gosh I’m hoping Jeff Jarrett is whispering in some ears.

        Could be very interesting if that turns out to be true.

      if kurt angle were to return to wwe he probably wont be cleared to compete by wwe doctors since he did have a neck injury similar to edge

    • duh

      this makes TNA look really bad. they dont care about their workers safety even in the slightest

    • yoyo

      This is why Angle left WWE, McMahon wanted him to work injured. With all of their roster cuts to pay Hogan’s salary, TNA is in trouble if they are overworking an injured wrestler, who just joined their Hall of Fame.
