Kurt Angle’s Brother Arrested For Assault, EC3 On Current WWE Position. Eric Angle has been arrested with assault during a Junior Wrestling event.
– Some within the WWE Universe may remember Eric Angle, Kurt’s brother, from his short stint with the WWE in the early 2000s. The resemblance between the two is uncanny, especially when both have their heads shaves. Regardless, he’s recently been a coach for amateur wrestling; however, this could come to a screeching halt due to recent events.
WTAE.com is reporting that Eric was arrested and charged with assault after a Junior Wrestling Tournament took place. It is being said by witnesses that the scene was not a good one. According to the report, Eric grabbed a juvenile wrestler from the neck when he lost his match; tossing the youngster to the mat when he let go.

WNZ will keep you posted on any further developments in this story.
– WNZ reported yesterday about the fact that apparently WWE’s head honcho Vince McMahon isn’t too keen on recent NXT call up, EC3. While the former Impact Champion had a pretty decent run in WWE’s developmental brand, he’s barely been profiled on either Monday Night RAW or SmackDown LIVE as of late, and it seems WWE Creative has very little for him right now. He made his official main roster debut in early February of this year.
Interestingly enough, yesterday was EC3’s birthday, but rather than an appearance on RAW, the WWE Universe Twitter handle sent out a tweet, wishing him well on his day. What was EC3’s response? See below:
Thanks. Catering was delicious.

Interesting comment from EC3 to say the least. With the Road to Wrestlemania in full swing, here’s hoping the WWE has plans for this talent come mid-April when the brand extension draft hits.
