Former TNA and WWE Champion and olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle reportedly made his choice on the furture of his career in wrestling. Last week Kurt turned down a full time contract with the WWE because he felt as though his body couldn’t endure that kind of pain anymore. It was speculated that the WWE was going to work out some sort of part time contract much like they do with Rob Van Dam, The Rock and Chris Jericho at times.

However, The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer has stated that Angle will not be leaving TNA. His contract with the company expired last month and many believed Kurt would come right over to the WWE because he seemingly expressed his desire to come back to the organization in a handful of interviews. Kurt mentioned how his next run would be his last and how he’d like to end his career in the WWE.

Kurt Angle was granted an early release from his WWE contract in 2006 because of his mounting health reasons. He was unable to take time off from wrestling and was constantly working hurt. Kurt Angle signed with TNA in 2006, where he competed until his contract’s expiration on September 21st. Before Angle was free from his contract, he served as the GM of TNA on screen and decided many of the main event match-ups. The idea behind the secrecy of the situation is to create an element of surprise in TNA when Kurt Angle announces publicly that he has chosen to stay. TNA needs a name like Kurt Angle, a five-time TNA world heavyweight champion and hall of fame wrestler to stay in the organization.

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.
