Kurt Angle NOT entering MMA
 
well all the talk of him giving mma a shot was all washed away tonight. He is now signed to wrestle for TNA, apparently it was just a ploy to make people think he wasnt going there

Sources? I can't believe he is wrestling for TNA, I thought he left WWE/ECW because he was injured and tried to heal it up. Plus his yearly salary would probably make TNA go bankrupt. And also he is two times better than any other TNA wrestler, Samoan Joe, Abyss, Sting, Jeff Jarrett, Christian, they would all be like Funaki is in WWE :laugh:.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling On Spike TV!

as much as i'd have loved to see Angle in MMA, his body is in too bad a shape. wrestling for TNA, after a few months rest, is perfect for him. they'll pay him a good amount, and even so, he'd be happy to do it as he's just another victim of the Vince d*ckery of his stars. Angle wanted time off cause he's hurt, and vince "let's him go"??? jerk!

anyway, this is good news for TNA, plus, having a new 9PM timeslot shows Spikes desire for TNA to succeed. hey, if Spike could carry a succeful competator to WWE, it'd be smooth sailing for them!

first off, Somoan Joe (not soman joe, get it right if your gunna comment) is one of the best pro wrestlers alive right now.

anyway, pro wrestling is very much about respect. vince was a d*ck, not letting kurt take off to heal... so, now kurt gets to help screw vince, who's product has been slowly dying over the past few years. With Kurt, and a lot of effort in revamping TNA's current storylines... TNA could go huge!

This is what is best for him. TNA is very good for Angle, some good wrestlers for Angle to lock up with. Angle vs Samoa Joe is going to make huge ratings for TNA, give it 5 years and it will be on par with WWE.

TNA=Good
WWE=Bad(Workload)
MMA=Bad(Dangerous)

I dont watch much wrestling but aj and danials are amazing. Samo joe is pretty cool 2. So i wouldn't say angle is the best.

I thought was a bit more a back story to Angle's situation. I heard that he was indeed injured and that he got hooked on pain meds in order to be able to wrestle, WWE got spooked because of wrestlers dying over the past few years. They tell Angle to get it together, he does not, then they fire him. Like I said, this is what I heard, if I got it wrong no worries correcting me,and I'm no fan of Mr McMahon (I think he is an unethical guy and an egomaniac) so don't read that into my post.

well this just in......looks like he might be trying the MMA scene after all......

4W-WRESTLING.COM : YOUR SOURCE FOR PRO WRESTLING.


Dave Meltzer is reporting that Angle's TNA contract is not an exclusive deal, which will allow him to seek MMA matches, which seems to be the plan for Angle's camp.

Ps its SAMOA Joe not Samoan lol......and although Aj and Daniels are 2 of the best guys right now, I wouldnt be surprised to see Homicide get a HUGE push in the near future, he is absolutely amazing

This would definetly help put TNA on the map!
