With regards to the twitter base of the former WWE and TNA star Kurt Angle.

Angle is of course a former Olympic gold medalist, capturing amateur wrestling’s top prize in the 1996 games from Atlanta. Here’s what Angle wrote on Sunday @AngleFoods1:

“much negativity goin round @ Olympic comeback. I truly am getting ready. Don’t compare it to my Ufc- mma attempts, We couldn’t agree on “terms”

“Terms that were about $ and starting dates. Olympics will be on My “terms”. Nobody elses’. It’s not for Publicity or I would tweet it everyday”

“To the naysayers, believe what U want. But “I” am in control of this. Nobody else. My nephew and I started training for it.”

“As long as I stay injury free, I am going for it. Tna’s backing Me. It won’t be easy. Probably harder than Mma. But at least its under my terms”

Kurt Angle later followed up with more details regarding his goal to compete at the 2012 Olympics, saying that TNA is supporting his training:

“Also thanks to Tna for allowing Me to go for Olympics. Impact Wrestling is the Best. Believe it or not!!!!”

“I have a long road. I’m Humble but Confident. This is all about Proving at 43, I can still show I am a world Class competitor.”

Kurt Angle is the only wrestler in history to be a Triple Crown winner in both WWE and TNA. He is the first man to have held the WWE Championship, the World Heavyweight Championship, and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in his career. Angle is also a two time King of the Mountain winner, winning at the 2007 and 2009Slammiversary PPV event, making him the only wrestler to have been both King of the Ring (WWE) and King of the Mountain (TNA). Between WWE and TNA, Angle has won 17 total championships. In 2010 the Wrestling Observer Newsletter named Angle the Wrestler of the Decade of the 2000s. He is a former 1996 Olympic Gold Medal winner in the 220lbs weight category for the United States of America. And now he is going to get back in upcoming Olympics, to cheer up his fans.
