Kurt Angle’s doctor has warned him to stop wrestling after his most recent neck injury aggravation. Angle considered going against doctor’s orders, but ultimately all parties involved felt that it was best for him to sit out. Multiple sources report that TNA officials spoke directly with Angle’s surgeon regarding his health.
Angle was in noticeable pain prior to the Sacrifice PPV on Sunday, but observers say that he looked like was feeling better at the Impact tapings.
The working plan at the Impact tapings continues to be for Angle to wrestle AJ Styles at Slammiversary. There are some in the company who are concerned that Angke will try to gut his way out through the match even if he’s not ready. Many within TNA are hoping that management will continue to look out for his best interests even if he is not willing to do so himself.
