Pro Wrestling Since 1997


Angle issues statement


To follow up on the Kurt Angle-TMZ story from earlier, Kurt’s attorney Frank Smith issued the following statement to Wrestling Globe:

“We understand that Kurt Angle was pulled over last night for a traffic infraction and/or offense. During the stop, he was asked to submit to a breathalyzer test and passed. We understand Kurt will be entering a plea of not guilty in response to any infractions and/or offenses.”

Angle was arrested Saturday night in Virginia after it was reported to state troopers that his car was swerving between lanes on I-66. He was arrested for DWI, taken to Warren County jail, and posted $2,000 bond early Sunday morning.

    He passed a breathalyzer? Well geez. I guess that means the cops are out to get him…or he was impaired from narcotics like his ex-TNA buddy Matt Hardy who also blew clean with the breathalyzer.

    There must be some kind of trick they do to pass.

    @Hazard Reeses Peanut Butter cups!

    Another Matt Hardy…he never does any wrong and blames everyone else for his issues.

    I think if you hold a title from any promotion that you should hold yourself accountable for the way you act in public, because all your doing is making yourself look back bad as well as the promotion you represent.

    good role models these guys are….be a man and take responsibility

    Kurt they obviously hacked the Breathalyzer…the Olympic Committee salutes you!

    “good role models these guys are”
    A sign of what is wrong in wrestling.

    In the “old days” wrestlers weren’t supposed to be role models for children. They were travelers who put up a good show for a mostly male, adult viewership.

    Now they are supposed to act as educators for kids.. And the audience seems to welcome this and blows up every little thing that is not “child friendly” or “role model” about them.

    Look at people from the good times of wrestling.. they are all a bunch of drunk, drugged sons of bitches, and we used to love them for that, or even just despite of that. Because they were great entertainers.

    I’m not promoting drugs for kids or alcohol or assault.. but thats how it has been. Real wrestlers will allways be like that. Just the viewership changed and is now holier than the pope ( the real one )..

    R-Truth was right! It’s a conspiracy! All the cops are actually little Jimmies! Little Jimmy is out to get Kurt Angle too!

  10. dave says:

    Robert is right. You’re saying: “Be a role model to kids if you’re a wrestler but PLZZZZ Vince stop the PG rating…”

    Don’t make it so obvious you’re only flaming Kurt for no other reason ‘cos you can.

    Doesn’t mean I don’t think Kurt’s full of crap though.

  11. RJ Ace says:

    I get what you’re saying Robert but I don’t think the wrestling business could survive without children as a demo at this point. Because of UFC/MMA, people know what a real fight looks like and it’s hard to sell pro wrestling to masses of adult male fans. Even in the Attitude Era, alot of kids and teens were watching on tv and attending events. Wrestling would still have a niche, but I don’t think it could sell advertising and merchandise like it does without kids. All that being said, since pro wrestling is on national tv, the wrestlers are role models just like NFL or NBA players whether it’s fair or not. The industry is also much better off today even if it was more entertaining back in the day. I don’t think today’s wrestlers will drop like flies in 20 years like 80’s and 90’s era stars. All that drinking, drug abuse, partying, and working 7 days a week caught up to them.

  12. Vinny says:

    What difference does whether or not wrestlers should be role models make? No one should be driving under the influence, if children look up to them or not. He’s endangering the lives of anyone he comes across on the road. TNA should not be allowed to operate if these guys are permitted to act like this without consequences. I realize Matt Hardy got fired, but he was expendable. Unless I’m remembering wrong, this is just the latest of several incidents for Angle. Anyone can make a mistake, but this is a dangerous pattern of reckless behavior.

  13. dave says:

    Indeed Vinny.
