Kurt Angle Pulled From Wrestling Event On Royal Rumble Weekend

5 Star Wrestling has announced that Kurt Angle has been pulled from Saturday's Dominant Wrestling TV show which is set to air on Spike in the UK Saturday night.

Angle was scheduled to do commentary at the event which will feature Rey Mysterio, John Morrison, P.J. Black and Drew Galloway.

The company issued a statement regarding losing Angle.

"At 16:04 today I received a call from Kurt Angle’s management team confirming the rumours that Kurt will not be commentating on the debut episode of Dominant Wrestling, which airs live on Spike TV at 8pm this Saturday, from the Dundee Ice Arena.It’s a shame but we would like to congratulate Kurt on his Hall of Fame appointment.

Losing a star as respected as Kurt is obviously a blow to us but fortunately he was booked as a commentator rather than a wrestler so it’s not like this will make much of a difference to this historic event."

So why would WWE pull Angle from this event on Royal Rumble weekend? Could a Rumble appearance be in the works? Or is it simply because the WWE no longer wants Angle at outside events?
