Angle Claims His Twitter Was Hacked, Apologizes For Remarks



TNA Wrestling performer Kurt Angle, a former WWE Champion, posted numerous messages on his Twitter account last night during WrestleMania XXVII criticizing Randy Orton, Jack Swagger, Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler for using his trademark finishing maneuvers during their respective matches. Orton responded to Angle on the site, saying ‘everything’s been done’ and that a wrestler using another’s move should be considered a sign of respect.

Angle has since changed his tune on the matter as he claimed today that his Twitter account was hacked. He adds that most of the tweets in question weren’t from him.

“I just found out somebody hacked into my Twitter account,” Angle wrote. “Most of those tweets weren’t from me. I just found out today. I will find out.

“Who would do this? I don’t know why somebody would pretend to be me. I apologize for the remarks. I’m not a twitter guy so I rarely use it.”

Below is his statement in its entirety:

“To anyone I upset, I am sorry. I didn’t watch W-mania last night. I DID get a lot of tweets during Show. About Orton, Swagger,etc.Who cares?”

“I think the whole thing is Halarious. How I upset all of U amazes me.I don’t read dirt sheets,but u heard they r upset.They’re ‘dirt’ sheets.”

“I Hope that W-mania was entertaining for all of You, especially ‘The Rock’. Oh, and Orton-relax, I won’t beat ur ass. You can use my move:).”

“2 Randy Orton’s credit, I Heard He had the best match of the night. Good for You! Btw,I Never used Shamrock’s finish while he still wrestled.”

“There’s a big difference to using a Finish somebody did b4 U, and is doing while U still Wrestle. The fact is, I don’t care. Sorry everybody.”

“Lastly,I just found out somebody hacked into my Twitter account.Most of those tweets weren’t from me.I just found out today. I will find out.”

“Who would do this? I don’t know why somebody would pretend to be me. I apologize for the remarks. I’m not a twitter guy so I rarely use it.”

“On a side note,Randy and I discussed the Angle Slam.I am happy Orton used my Finish.As he put it,imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

“Good Luck Randy. Thank You for reaching out to me!!!”

“Remember that Wrestlemania is an Event bigger than all of us. If You enjoyed it, great. That’s most important. Social networking is a Bitch.”
