Kurt Angle won't go to MMA he's had far too many injures and his neck isn't the best after what happen when he was wrestling over in Japan the only think Kurt needs to do is give his body a break.

I saw a commercial for the TNA game that he is in and it got me thinking. He looked absolutley tiny, like he was cutting weight to make 205. I honestly thought it was that one skinny dude from about 10 years ago that was WWF's version of Goldberg.

If Kurt would have gotten into MMA after he won the gold medal, he would have been an absolute monster.

Now he's old, banged up back, banged up neck, no MMA experience. Dudes body is just destroyed now.

You're just a cook...

I think Kurt would have been an extremely good MMA fighter had he started 10 years ago. He's proven to have a great work ethic to go along with the top notch wresting skills. Now though, there is no chance. I suppose if they put him in the cage against someone with mediocre striking and horrible TDD he might have a chance but he wouldn't stand a chance against anyone with well rounded skills.

I never want to Kurt in the octagon not cos he is a pro wrestler, but because of his age and injury list he will get hurt. Olympic Gold Medalist Paralysed in Human Cock Fighting is a headline I do not want to see.

If any young pro wrestlers want to step up into real competition I have no problems with that. I just dont want to see frail men get hurt.

Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig


Show him respect

There was controversy in the Tough Enough segments in WWE, when Daniel Puder (I think it was him, could be wrong) put him in a genuine submission in an 'amateur wrestling' challenge. The referee apparently called time early so Kurt didn't 'lose face'.

No way can he compete in MMA. Personally I dont rate his chances against Kimbo even...

and then we had blueberry pie...

For sure, I couldn't agree more. I just meant everyone is different. Angle has proven time and time again, that he is incredibly diciplined and driven. I don't think he could ever make it as a heavy weight, but that post above about him getting down to 205 actually got me thinking...

He might be able to do something at 205.

I don't get the whole Angle in MMA, since he won't get cleared anywhere in the States. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in Japan.
