I reported here that Kurt Angle is having arthoschopic knee surgery on February 11, 2014. He was suppose to have it sooner but TNA Wrestling has their UK Tour and is advertising Kurt.
With arthoschopic knee surgery taking about 6-8 weeks for recovery, Lockdown is only 3 and a half weeks away from his surgery date. I wouldn’t start counting on a Kurt Angle match at Lockdown.
We should point out that the status of Sting and Jeff Hardy may very well be in question as well. Sting’s contract is coming to an end and he isn’t advertised after this Thursday’s Genesis show. Jeff Hardy has a two year contract he signed last year but this year is an option year and TNA could very well try to restructure it and Jeff may not take it.
With Kurt out, and the recent departure of AJ Styles, talent is going to be very slim for at least two months. This very well makes sense as Dixie Carter is trying to get new stars.
What are your thoughts on this? Will this hurt TNA or will it help them push new talent?
