UPDATE ON KURT ANGLE: On Thursday's IMPACT, just days before their Steel Cage match at Lockdown, a confrontation between Ethan Carter III and Kurt Angle turned physical and has possibly put Sunday's match in jeopardy. During the attack, EC3 viciously targeted and further injured Angle's knee - even claiming he "Heard it Pop" during the fight. Kurt was immediately taken from IMPACT to a local hospital, where tests were ongoing. TNA medical staff that initially examined Angle backstage fear he may have tore his MCL, ACL or a combination of both ligaments.
