Kurt Angle has been cutting down his weight in recent weeks. He's down to about 200 pounds now, instead of 215 or 220 legit. Angle's profile on the TNA website bills him at 250 pounds. Angle's on a major diet and has dropped several pounds since the start of April. No one knows why Angle is dropping the weight, but he's proud of it. As of late, he's been going around backstage asking people to guess how much weight he's lost. Also, TNA bills Angle as 6 feet flat, but he's actually 5 foot 10. Angle said so himself during his appearance on Pros vs. Joes a few months ago.

I really hope that his health is ok, though. I've been reading about his problems with pain killers and neck for some time now.

Angle is the best technical wrestler TNA has and they can't afford to lose him.

I thought you had to be under 200 to have a chance for the cruiserweight championship belt. During the Matt Hardy cruiserweight battle long ago, they said he had to be under 200 (or 205) to qualify. I just thought TNA had the same rules about their belt... whatever it's called. :\

The X-Division title was initially advertised under the banner of having no weight limits. After the Motorcity Machine Guns' feud with Team 3D, they added a requirement. This may have only been for the purpose of the month-long weigh in comedy bit that followed; I would hope they're back to no limits, but I'm not really sure.

The Unity said it the best but I ask you a question...

Why would a former World Champion try to win a belt that is less superior?

They have had former WWE heavyweight champs go to the IC title for a while in the past (I'm remembering Kane and HHH during the "Two man power trip" storyline). With the X-Division title, however, there's less credibility than the IC or US titles.

Another reason why I want a mid-card title in TNA! :sigh:
