Because where he is at the moment is beneath him. The talent pool is dire & the product stinks.Ugh, these again. :StephenA
I'd rather him retire from wrestling next year.
Da fuck is the point of waiting ages for a guy to return to WWE or any company than just watching him where he is? It's not like it's hard to watch a Kurt Angle match now, as he is on national TV, still.
In all fairness, both companies barely have ANY sort of logic in their respective products. Talent pool in TNA is low. Talent pool in WWE is REALLY low on star power. But both creative teams are slacking hard.Because where he is at the moment is beneath him. The talent pool is dire & the product stinks.
And Angle does not BELONG to ANY COMPANY. And this goes to ALL wrestlers. Just as dumb as saying AJ Styles belongs in TNA. These guys are not property of one single company. They may fit better somewhere, fine. But that does not mean that they belong there. And where does Angle fit in current WWE? What? One match before unnoticed retirement?Kurt Angle belongs in the WWE. He should retire in the WWE.
He'd fit in a hell of a lot better than he does in TNA. He's already out wrestled & beaten pretty much every "star" on their half baked roster. What is there left for him to achieve by continuing to work for them?And where does Angle fit in current WWE? What? One match before unnoticed retirement?
When did I say he had one more match in him?He'd fit in a hell of a lot better than he does in TNA. He's already out wrestled & beaten pretty much every "star" on their half baked roster. What is there left for him to achieve by continuing to work for them?
If he signed a part time deal with the WWE like RVD/Jericho or even a limited appearance deal like Lesnar he could easily have successful new feuds with: Punk, Bryan, the Shield, Cody Rhodes, Cesaro, Del Rio... as well as reigniting old feuds with the likes of Cena & Orton or even big money matches with part timers like Lesnar, Triple H, Taker etc.
Who says he only has one more match left in him anyway? If he can get over these drug/alcohol issues he's good to go.
Exactly this, Angle is too damn good to end his career in TNA. Think of the feuds he could have with Bryan, Cesaro, Punk, the Shield guys, and so on. In a real fantasy land, if the streak were to be extended to 25 appearances, he could even face Taker.He needs to end his career at a credible company and I'm sure he's well aware of that
Well said man. +Rep for this.The TNA hate in this thread got a giggle out of me, kudos.
With the exception of a few wrestlers on WWE television, a majority of TNA's roster wrestler rings around the WWE talent.
and with the talent pool that WWE have right now(No, NXT doesn't count.) it's laughable anyone would jump on TNA's ass for theirs, even if it's not infinitely better.
But that's not what this is about.
I don't believe Kurt ever will, TNA signed him up at a point in his life where he'd just lost two of his closest friends and had a serious addiction to painkillers, meaning honestly; he was heading down the Guerrero/Benoit track.
and they've taken care of him, they let him keep doing what he loves, highlighted his strengths at every possible opportunity, sent him off to rehab when he needed it, given him titles, trusted him with the younger stars, booked him probably stronger than he ever did before & he gets inducted into the TNA HoF this weekend.
I wouldn't begrudge the guy his last year in WWE if he really wants to go out like that, so long as he didn't turn his back on the guys that took care of him and it was a neutral thing. I love Kurt, he's easily in my all time favourite 5, i'd like to see him on a bigger stage with better production when he finally decides to go out, but at the same time, i don't have a problem with him bowing out with his head held high where he is now.
