In fact I think it was the other way around. Don't believe anything from Angle's mouth! I'm pretty sure it was the other way around, they wanted to give Angle time off to go to rehab and he wouldn't do it. His body was falling apart and he was riddled with injuries, so they released him. I remember there was months of dirtsheet reports saying people internally were concerned about his well being.

If that was the case then why didn't he take the time off and just not bother with the rehab?

Not sure I can believe that tbh. Sounds like bullshit.

Im sure I hear at the time that WWE wanted him to take time off either through injury or other reasons so he left them

He was released. Anyone who thinks otherwise is very naive.

Both WWE and Kurt Angle decided to have Angle claim he asked for his release so not to embarrass an Olympic gold medallist.

Kurt Angle was beat up and addicted to pain killers. WWE were going to have to fire him and he had the nick name 'dead man walking'. He asked fir a release so he could go to rehab and re-sign later in better nick. Considering he immediately signed to TNA, the company that wouldn't fire him for wellness infringements and didn't go to rehab, I assume he was lying and just wanted to keep wrestling and not have to quit painkillers and alcohol. Many DUIs and many years later he finally went to rehab... for a month and went straight back to wrestling.

Good wrestler, bit of a self destructive lunatic.

Oh yeah, Angle may tell a different story, then again Angle says a lot of things that aren't true, and drinks a lot, so conclusions can be made.

I like to think of it as an "amicable split".


Kurt got the lighter schedule he wanted, Vince was no longer responsible for his health. I just don't believe that it was WWE straight up releasing him because in a sense, they gave Kurt what he was asking for.

He wanted time off but they didn't give him any. He had a painkiller addiction and was really injured plus unhappy with his booking in ECW so he requested his release and got it.

Listen to his Interview on Stone Cold's podcast, Kurt asked for extended time off even though he had many years in his contract left. Vince agreed to give him that window of healing. Kurt then up and abandoned that goodwill to go to TNA. All that "refusing to give time off" is bullshit aggrandizing to hype up his TNA debut.
