    Considering that Angle has been off of tv for about a month what would be the reason to put him in a pay per view match with no storyline to sell? It’s ok for him to show up for the HOF since they already announced it but in my thinking he doesn’t merit a match in that pay per view.

    • Mike Arienti

      To sell tickets and make a profit…

      • raul cruz

        Unless there is a build up to a feud I don’t see him appearing in the ring selling any more tickets.

    • Brock Lesnar Fan

      Why isn’t Kurt in prison? Third offense DUI”s should do one year automatic. Again? Why isn’t he in jail?

      • raul cruz

        Well look at Jeff Hardy. The guy got busted with enough drugs to send anyone else to the slammer for a good long while.

    • Nat James

      I think you are forgetting Kurt Angle is a member of the New Main Event Mafia and could easily be brought back for a tag team match against Aces & Eights at Bound For Glory.

      • raul cruz

        No, I have that quite in mind. I just think putting Angle into any match serves no purpose because there is no real storyline to validate his appearance. MEM is now feuding with EGO, the ACES & 8s group is now Bully Ray and a three undercard guys, so why bring Angle in for a match at this point? It would be a needless expense and TNA is actually showing that they are trying to cut back on their expenditures.
