- Hours after his fourth arrest for driving under the influence, Kurt Angle issued a statement on Twitter and says he’s entering a rehab center for help. Here’s what he wrote:

“I am blessed to have the support of my family, my friends and my company. In light of recent events I will immediately be entering a rehabilitation center. I realize that this is a pivotal time in my life and I ask for your understanding as well as your prayers and continued support. I am confident that in taking these steps I can begin to address necessary changes in my life.”

    Now, if the average man who wasn’t a rich celebrity got caught that many times like that, he would be arrested, forced to take anabuse, stripped of license for life and serve 5 years or more.

    I don’t think he’s ever admitted he had a problem though. He always said “I made a mistake” and left it at that, Hardy did the same thing for years and he’s doing great these days. You need to be ready to accept responsibillity for what you’ve done and Kurt never was before.

    I think the problem is how many times he’s done step 1.

    Don’t get me wrong I like Kurt, but he needs a kick in the ass.

    Admitting you have a problem is step 1, I hope he finally gets over his demons.

    This is not the first time he has done something this stupid, and even with the rehab, I reckon this will not be his last.
    Surely with a new wife and a young child, its about time that he needs to realise that he cant do this anymore. And if its the wrestling that is causing him to do this, then its time to not do that anymore as well.
    He should have took these steps years ago, not wait til he got caught again. And my guess would be that one of the main reasons to go to rehab now is to make sure he gets a reduced sentence when it winds up in court. So many people do the rehab thing purely because they know that any judgement will carry a smaller fine, or avoid a prison sentence because the judge will take into consideration that they are doing something to get themselves better.

    TNA is a place of so many fools. They need to get rid of him and they should have gotten rid if Hardy years ago.
