In another update, Wresltingdotcom has learned that Kurt Angle is currently in custody at Allegheny County Jail in Pittsburgh, PA and is awaiting arraignment on the multiple charges brought against him this morning as reported earlier by WPIX. Sources are reporting that TNA Management believes after the arraignment this afternoon Angle will make his way to Orlando for the Hard Justice Pay-Per View. Sources indicate that TNA and the creative team are working on alternative plans just in case Angle is unable to make it to Orlando.
TNA staff and wrestlers are said to be surprised by the arrest, especially because Kurt and the girl in question, as reported before, TNA knockout Rhaka Khan are said to be currently living together in Angle’s home. There had been rumors within TNA that Kurt broke up with her, and actually once told her to leave his house, but since that incident, the two had seen together in public.
A big discussion in TNA is how ironic the situation is, following the issues between Kurt Angle and Jeff Jarrett and Jarrett and Karen Angle being living in Jarrett’s home were revealed last month on Bubba The Love Sponge’s radio show. Many people are waiting to see how Angle’s arrest could play into Jarrett’s position within TNA going forward and how much power Jarrett will or will not retain upon his return.
