I agree with need for harsher punishment. But then the Judges might actually have to do time.
Just sayin.......

HGH gave him a huge chin. I can't believe an Olympic wrestler would stoop to doing the circus pro wrestling.

I guess everybody has a price.

lmao at some of these comments. I only joined this crap to reply/make some comments too. In regards to someone saying his face is long: I don't think that GIANT M in the middle of his face helps with that. And yeah, he is training for the Olympics so he's been trying to back cut down his weight and what not, so he looks sickly as all holy hell. But he's a moron, pure and simple. When your at this level of fame you gotta think about what your doing and who your affecting. I honestly could care less about most other celebs because to me, they all do what they do for the money. Guys like him, especially where he wrestles, are doing it for the fans and for the love of the business. To basically just go ahead and throw what you've done down the toilet is a slap in the face to his fans. I mean, some kids might look to him (sadly) as a role model for his acheivements. Yet he keeps messing up. I think he needs to get fired and get some treatment for whatever issues he has. It's real, Kurt. It's damn REAL!

I know he's an idiot but damn he looks good, at least compared to how he looked a couple years ago. Looks like he lost a lot of weight and all that fat was hiding what turned out to be, pretty handsome features. He looks quite yummy now.

What are you doing in "Hicksville"? Where the cops are required to be 300lbs and only have GED's. Do they know how to run a breathalyzer?

How many times? Seriously, TNA will do nothing because he's the biggest draw they have. Without Kurt, you may as well just let Vince buy you out for a second time. Between his prior charges and this...is it three strikes yet?
