– Kurt Angle said in an interview this week that he’s interested in trying out for the Olympics and said he wasn’t saying it just for publicity. He said: “I feel really good at 42, and I might be making a statement that him and I are going to start training for the Olympics and go after the U.S. Open, the Olympic team trials, and then the Olympics. It’s about really making the team and making a point that, you know what, the 40s is not old. It’s the new young.”
– As noted before, Mick Foley expressed interest in attending RAW for The Rock’s birthday party this week from Miami. Sources report that Foley won’t be attending. It’s also being reported that TNA had no problem with Foley being on RAW but Vince McMahon would not allow it.
Regarding his work with RAINN, Foley announced the following good news on his Twitter:
“Two days ago, I announced that #10forRAINN had surpassed it’s goal of $40,000, and that I was hopeful of reaching the $50,000 mark. Within the last 24 hours, we have marched over the $50,000 mark, smashed through $60,000, and surpassed SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS! This is amazing news for everyone who has joined the fight to end sexual violence. Thank you SO much!”
Foley also revealed on Twitter that Vince McMahon is his third major donor. He wrote:
“Was that reveal not worth the wait! Hey, I am THRILLED to have both @tnawrestling and @wwe supporting @rainn01 . Will write more later.”
