Upper limit for black hole’s rotational speed

  1. Jun 27, 2013 #1
    From wikipedia:
    Rotating black hole
    So, the black holes have got the upper limit for rotating? Could somebody explain me why? I can understand one reason: due to special theory of relativity the event’s horizon’s circular/linear speed cannot be more than speed of light, right? Or maybe there is another reason for this upper limit? :rolleyes:
