TNA announced on their website today that Kurt Angle will not be competing at TNA Lockdown, which takes place live on pay-per-view this Sunday, March 9th, 2014.
TNA's website states that Angle has suffered a torn MCL and will require surgery. They say this happened during an angle where Ethan Carter III attacked Angle and worked over his knee. Angle claims he "heard it pop." He is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair the torn MCL today.
Kurt also addressed the situation on Twitter.
Attack by EC3 in London aired last night has taken me out of Lockdown Sunday. Surgery required but I will be back soon!— Kurt Angle (@RealKurtAngle) March 7, 2014
No word if EC3 will have a different opponent, but for now the match is off the card.
