Pro Wrestler Kurt Angle vs. A UFC Fighter in 2007?

- Kurt Angle was telling people at the 12/13 Video Game Awards that he was going to fight Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz or Chuck Liddell this year.


Pro Wrestling Observer

I posted this on the UFC forum because it involved three UFC Guys. I figured I would post it on the UFC Forum.

If this does not belong in the UFC Forum, feel free to move it to general discussion.

Anyway, I have no idea what Angle is thinking.

Kurt's insane. You have to question someone's sanity when they break their neck, inject mepivicaine(sp?) in their neck, and still wrestle. Also, those times where Kurt was one bad bump away from being a cripple. He's off his rocker, and he believes his own hype. I believe that he thinks he could hang with Couture, Liddell, & Ortiz. The sad thing is, he couldn't even hang with Brandon Lee Hinkle.

He could be something. If he started earlier. He was a olypic wrestler. Even a wrestler of randy's class didmt make the olypics let alone win gold. He holds wins over terkai (i'm not sure if thats spelled right), he isn't anything special but he does have mma wins. So who knows. He couldn't beat a top name but i bet he'd do alrite against a TUF fighter.

If his body wasn't falling apart he'd probably do pretty good in MMA with some training (assuming his amateur wrestling skills were still up to scratch).

Given how well some other wrestlers have done, you would think that if he had started earlier he could have been great. But now you would have thought that his wrestling skills were too rusty. That and the fact that his neck is about to explode into a thousand fragments.

Perhaps he is hoping to get special permission to be able to use steel chairs, have his corner distract the referee and then do low blows, conceal knuckle-dusters in his shoe, and so on. That would definitely make those matchups a little fairer. I can see it now:

Rogan: And though he was maybe one of the top 2 or 3 guys in the world, I can't help but think that this match up was a very, very bad idea. What was Joe Silva thinking?
Golide: Herb Dean starts the action, we're off. Now Lidell is circling him, he looks like he's teeing up that big, looping right... what's this! It's Dean Lister! He's at the corner of the octagon, and he's gesturing to the referee!
Rogan: It'll be interesting to see how the refereee deals with this. He should send Lister away.
Goldie: Yep, that's what he's doing. Yep, he's sent Lister away- Lister is furious! He can't believe it! But, wait, who's that?
Rogan: It's Tito Ortiz! He's tossed a steel chair over the wall of the Octagon! And Herb Dean hasn't seen it!
Goldie: Tito with the kick... no! Too late! Angle nailed him with the steel chair shot, and has tossed the chair back out to Ortiz! Now Dean turns back! He's stopping it! Angle is the new light heavyweight champion!

Angle recently got back in the ring in TNA, wrestling a few matches. He has said that the doctors at TNA are monitoring him 24-7 and that they gave him a clean bill of health before returning to the ring.

With pro wrestling, it can be scripted and he can be monitored much more carefully. In an MMA atmosphere, he might end up paralyzed, and nobody wants to see that happen.

As much as I like Angle, I do think he's had a few screws loosed as of late.

He needs to fight Puder or Brock. I don't think he could beat Puder and he may be able to beat Brock just because they're both new to MMA. He's way in over his head if he thinks he could beat Tito, Randy, or Chuck.
