Kurt Angle Speaks About Failed Olympics Bid, Match at Lockdown and More

– Kurt Angle spoke with the Associated Press about his failed bid to make the Olympics, which was curtailed due to injury. Check out the highlights:

On the injury: ‘ I feel like it was a waste of time. Here I am, at the 11:30 hour, and I get the worst injury I’ve gotten in the last year. I’ve had four or five injuries, but I’ve worked around them. This one, I can’t work around. There’s no way around it.”Kurt Angle Speaks About Failed Olympics Bid, Match at Lockdown and More
On his match at Lockdown still being on: ”In amateur wrestling, I have no control over what’s going to happen to me. My No. 1 priority is TNA Wrestling. With TNA, I can work around my injuries and still have a five-star match.”

On whether he would have made it if not for the injury: ”I really thought that I had a legitimate shot of at least making the team, or being an Olympic alternate. At 43, no one’s ever done it. I had that opportunity. I had that shot.”

    His twitter account gets hacked all the time. It’s not Kurt making those tweets, its probably joe slimeball who hacked Angles account.
