- The Otago Daily Times in New Zealand has an interview with TNA Superstar Kurt Angle, who discussed family life and his children. During the interview, Angle was asked if he had any regrets about leaving WWE.
"No," Angle replied. "Impact Wrestling has treated me very well. They gave me time off when I needed it, and they paid me a lot of money to come here.
"Do I miss the Wrestlemania crowds and the Royal Rumble crowds? Yes, I do. It was hard to walk away from that. I felt, for my family and for my health at the time, I had to seek a reduced schedule. I had a painkiller problem, and problems with my marriage, and I kind of took it out on Vince McMahon [WWE owner]. He was trying to make me the guy, before John Cena came along. I just didn't do the right things. I blame myself for that. You live and you learn, and I'm happy with TNA."
