Hey all. Just a note that as it is easter, the posting is going to be a little erratic. We’re celebrating the something of Christ by eating His Eggs, and you should too! Anyways, the whole ‘Kurt Angle doing MMA’ thing is really starting to heat up, as I got this email from Michael Adams:
Tonight on TNA Total Impact they did as their main event a staged MMA fight (or I assume it was staged). It featured Kurt fighting 3 or 4 guys one after another. The matches were very “MMA” stylistic. However I’m sure it was pretty clear to any MMA fans turning in that it wasn’t real.
However it gets better.. Marcus Davis appeared in a prerecorded segment where he called Kurt Angle an “All around athlete” and Samoa Joe a “Ground and Pound Specialist”. (Samoa Joe looks like like a tan Staypuff Marshmellow man, but he can move pretty quickly for being so round.)
Then in what I think signals the end of his MMA career Frank Trigg was announced to be making an appearance on next weeks show to discuss the match.
Kurt has been saying he wants to fight in MMA for a while but he’s really taken it to the next level lately. But the big question is if he’s actually going through with it, or if this is just another carnival trick to gain attention for TNA? Dispite a few small signs from Randy Couture, I still don’t believe this shit for a second. Especially when Angle is spending his nights fighting ‘mma’ on his dumb pro wrestling show.
