UPDATE x 2: Here is another update on the health and update of Kurt Angle, who recently announced during a promo at the iMPACT! Wrestling TV tapings that he has a tumor on his neck, and he will be going in for surgery. The surgery is reportedly not a major operation, and Angle is expected to make a return to the ring in about three weeks after the procedure.
This could mean Angle will be ready to return for the next set of TNA iMPACT! Wrestling TV tapings set for next month (July 22 and 29).
UPDATE: According to sources, the story is real. Angle has known about the tumor for about a year. As of late, it has been causing him some issues leading to muscle atrophy, which is why he is having surgery now.
