In an interview on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Hardcore Sports channel, Kurt Angle once again stated that the steroids he used that was mentioned in the Sports Illustrated article were given to him by a doctor due to his injuries. He also claimed that he spoke with people at Sports Illustrated, explaining his side of the story to them. He said they apologized to him but never printed a retraction. Angle also said that he was going to challenge Christian Cage for the NWA Title at TNA’s May PPV.
Angle will work the PPV tonight despite a back injury. During his match with Christian Cage at the TNA house show on Friday, Angle was slammed into a guard rail by Cage and a piece of metal jabbed into his back and cut him open. He finished the match and will work tonight.
TNA Victory Road has been scheduled for 7/15 in Orlando, FL.
