    I have got alot of heat for my love for him to try again. I am a big fan of the olympics. My life basically goes on hold for it lol I will be bummed if he can't preform. I think it would be great to watch him again.

    I think his age and lifestyle is keeping him from the Olympics.

    That’s a shame for him but i don’t think at his age he could compete against the best wrestlers in the world like he could in 1996, it’s 2012 now it’s been 16 years since he won a gold medal, he should just stick to what he can do and try not to cause himself any more serious injury.

    So he be a participant in the olympics with a broken neck but not a torn hamstring?

    kuyrt angle is a pathological liar. he has zero chance at making the olympic team at age 43. he is a braggart just like has been hogan who claimed that he was going take tna to the top of the mountain.

    Just for a good April Fools Day Joke, Kurt should've said he was officially going to the Olympics.
