ImpactWrestling.com posted an “update” on Kurt Angle following the airing of this week’s episode of Impact Wrestling.
The kayfabe article notes Angle heard his knee pop when Ethan Carter III was “attacking” him and he was “taken to a local hospital” with the fear he could have torn some ligaments.
TNA notes as a result of the beat down, their match announced for Lockdown is in jeopardy. They plan to update further on Friday.
What actually happened is Angle underwent arthroscopic knee surgery when he returned from the company’s European tour. The surgery carries a recovery of 6-8 weeks and he never planned to work Lockdown. This begs to question why TNA promoted the match this close to the pay-per-view in the first place, as it’s done nothing but cause confusion.
