As noted earlier, Kurt Angle appeared on the Busted Open satellite radio show on Sirius 92 and XM 207. This interview was pretaped before the announcement of TNA iMPACT! becoming iMPACT! Wrestling. Angle was asked about the Jeff Hardy incident at the end of the Victory Road PPV, to which he replied, "That was an unfortunate situation where I think Jeff realizes it now. Whatever he did...this is something that's been talked about many times. Jeff made a mistake. If he was going to take any form of, let's say, sleep medication... he probably should've waited an hour before he did that. Jeff made a bad decision and he's learned from it.
"Jeff has been clean for the last month and he wants to come back and he's ready to come back and I believe that he won't make that mistake it again. But it did happen. I felt really bad. I felt bad for TNA, I felt bad for Jeff, I felt bad for the company. Jeff Hardy is an amazing wrestler. I have nothing bad to say about him, actually I love the kid. I wrestled Jeff at his best and I wrestled Jeff at his worst, and it's night and day."
