J.R. offers his thoughts on Edge’s injury rehab, Kurt Angle’s personal problems, and Dr. Death’s health in his latest blog, among many other things:
I hope Edge is back in time for WM26 in Arizona. Time will tell as no one can absolutely say one way or another at this time when Edge will be cleared to go 100% and there is no sense in coming back to the ring until then. (The rehab time for Edge’s Achilles tendon injury is around six months, which would place his return around the Royal Rumble, but that time frame isn’t set in stone.)
I remain steadfast that I believe Kurt Angle to be a good hearted human being but I also believe that sometimes that he can be his own worst enemy. Many of us have that propensity. The drive it takes to create an Olympic Champion can be both a blessing and a curse.
I often times see “wrestling couples” hooking up and I truly feel empathy for them. As I have said in this space many times, with the exception of a minority of examples, “wrestling relationships” are usually bound to implode which then adversely affects the locker room and often times forces many within said locker room to “choose sides.”
I received an email from Steve “Dr. Death” Williams and apparently cancer has returned to once again challenge my dear pal. Cancer returned to his Stoma and Doc has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment which is the only way this matter can be addressed.
Ross brings up the Wrestler Rescue campaign to raise money for a hands free device that would allow Williams to speak. You can find out more about that here.
