As noted yesterday, Kurt Angle was released by WWE. Although we do not have all the full details just yet, we do know that Kurt Angle had backstage heat in the ECW locker room. Angle rubbed a lot of workers the wrong way with his attitude and comments. He had the mind set that unless ECW was going to be built around him he didn't want to be there.
Angle is also going through a divorce from his wife Karen. In addition, Karen is pregnant with the couple's first son. The couple also has a young daughter. The couple had broken up, gotten back together, but now are going through a divorce.
This apparently had been brewing for some time and came to a head yesterday when Angle's agent met with WWE officials.
