Kurt Angle Needs Surgery
Kurt Angle revealed during yesterday’s Impact tapings that he has tumor growing on the side of his neck that requires surgery to remove. The mass has caused him to suffer from muscle atrophy and nerve problems. It’s not clear how serious this is, or how it might affect his career, but it’s believed he’s known about the tumor for a while and plans to retire in the next year or so anyway.
This episode in question won’t be airing until late July, early August.

Austin Aries Loses TNA Career To Spud
You can add Austin Aries to the list of TNA stars leaving the company. At yesterday’s tapings he lost a loser leaves TNA match to Rockstar Spud. He joins Gunner, Sam Shaw, Low-ki, Magnus, and James Storm in the departure line.
With TNA running less and less live events many talent feel they can make more money elsewhere.
