Re: Why did Kurt Angle leave WWE?
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.
