New, comments

TNA World Champ and former Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle called into Pittsburgh radio station B94's morning show, "Buckhead and Bubba," and made his first public comments discussing his arrest over the weekend.

"I didn't do anything wrong, and I was sitting there in the (Allegheny) county jail," Angle said.
