Kurt Angle Taking Time Off to Deal With Hamstring Injury

– After retaining the TNA World Heavyweight Title at last night’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view against Bobby Roode, Kurt Angle says he’s taking a week off to deal with his hamstring injury.

Angle wrote on Twitter today:

“Great Ppv last night.Bobby Roode is one of the Best Wrestlers today! I am Still Going for Olympics. Only taking 1 Week Off 2 heal hamstring!”

    TNA should use Raw’s theme song “burn it to the ground.”

    It is about putting young guys over. I mean when was the last time a young guy in TNA held the TNA title. An don’t give me Mr. Kennedy because he is not young he just a WWE reject that couldn’t hack it in the WWE. Man TNA not building anybody up in TNA.

    a lot of people say this but roode is very similiar to triple H from his early run, and while he doesn’t have a finisher that’s not hard to work on.

    I’d be happy with him or storm with the belt just sick of angle right now.

    takes more than a week to recover from a hamstring injury. Should have put Belt on roode whoever he is. I never watch tna but fucking Hogan sticking his ore in again

    Snark Mark and Bawb, I agree with you in general – the IXC has its darlings, most of which suck. But what got people upset was not that it was Roode, it’s that they had all this build up that took 6 months with the series, and that ultimately meant nothing. It’s bad booking all the way. If they got Roode so far, they had to give him the belt.

    What I don’t understand is why Storm didn’t win the series. Storm is the total package – he has charisma, a finisher, a catchphrase, a t-shirt, a foreign object, a following, all the things Hogan likes. So why did they go with Roode in the first place? Well, it’s TNA. Who can expect logic.

    who cares! the title has switched so much why not give eric young the title! the fact is tna needs to make him a star! but i forgot they cant!

  • Bawb

    @ SNark Mark

    Totally agree. He’s one of those vets in a company that thinks he deserves it because he’s a vet. He has no personality.

  • Snark Mark

    Angle is injury prone, yes. But do people care about Bobby Roode? The guy doesn’t have a finisher, a catchphrase, a t-shirt, or a following. Yes, he has been with the company for years. But is he a star?

  • renz

    i reckon he’ll get it within the next 2 impacts, if lacking that, the next ppv! they cant keep it on nagle anymore! hes to injury prone and comiitted to the olympics for the obivious reasons
