Two former WWE Superstars that literally set the landscape for today’s wrestlers are currently without contracts. Kurt Angle has come to an end on his current TNA tenure and CM Punk has been offered a TNA super contract since leaving the WWE…or so we thought.

The initial report stated that CM Punk had been offered a stupid amount of money by Total Nonstop Action wrestling similar to the amount that was offered to Hulk Hogan to join the company years ago. Since that story, Pro Wrestling Insider has reported that it was falsified and that TNA executives have said that there are no truths in the report.

PWI also made note that CM Punk attended an OVW event, but did not step foot inside the locker room. He went instead to Danny Davis’s office, who is the owner of OVW. This report negates the previous report that wrestlers weren’t allowed to approach CM Punk.

Kurt Angle has recently tried to approach the WWE in attempts for a contractual agreement. Angle’s contract with TNA has ended and the former TNA and WWE champion is now exploring his options for what is said to be his last run in in-ring competition.

The latest report is that Kurt has turned down the option for a full time WWE contract, but is still open for a part time gig much like Chris Jericho and RVD have recently done. Angle has also not completely dismissed the possibility of a return to TNA, as he has expressed his gratitude towards TNA president Dixie Carter in her handling of Kurt’s personal issues in his career with the promotion.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
