I hope he gets fired too just like Matt did. This is Kurt's 2nd DWI with TNA, isn't it?

Matt Hardy had other issues,and his arrest was the final straw. I'm pretty sure Kurt will be put on some kind of probation with TNA as well as that title belt leaving his hands very soon!

Do you send people from your staff to sit at the courthouse every day all day and this is the best they came back with? Really? Most don't even know (or care) who this is. I thought this was a celebrity site -- ????

I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37" HDTV to my boss for $60...0 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use BidsOut.com

Get rid of the ******* he is so much better then everyone else. Show him he may be good but he can still be fired as matt hardy was a week or two ago. Just because he is a big name star he should not get special treatment. And this is not his first dwi. First one forgive second on throught the book at him.

OMG I was at the Woodstock TNA show last night and I live in Warren County. So that means he was at our jail.
