- Kurt Angle recently spoke with The Daily Mirror in the UK. Here are some highlights, courtesy of PWTorch:

* Angle said he signed a new 3 year deal with TNA last week and emphasized his commitment to TNA.

* Karen Jarrett was most hesitant about their current storyline but wanted to get back on TNA TV. Angle said Karen wasn’t sure this was the way to go.

* Angle talked about the situation with Randy Orton on Twitter where they talked about each other using their finishing moves. Angle said he told Orton ahead of time that he would be using the RKO at TNA Lockdown in response to Orton using the Angle Slam at WrestleMania. Angle said what upset him about this and WWE building Jack Swagger as the next “him” is that he’s not retired. Angle noted that he didn’t use Ken Shamrock’s ankle lock until Ken was retired from wrestling.

* Angle said he wanted to represent TNA at the 2012 Olympics and the company will be helping him get there, giving him 20-25 days a month off to train.

    no reported date because you dont know when it happened. lil beach boy haha moron go read ur wikipedia sum more

  • Robby William

    oh btw i remember watching angle debut in WWF brah :)

  • Robby William

    r-truth is funny as a heel

  • Gary

    hey bro, one thing you get wrong, I like angle, but truth remains i remember watching the “asylum” match on wwf before angle ever used it. you can keep calling me lil jimmy but that even shows your age and iq on wrestling…you just get a new diss via r-truth? you can disrespect me using anything from YOUR arsneal…I guess you and kurt have alot in common

  • Robby William

    umm you quote stuff from wikipedia buckaroo. you do not know when kurt angle brought out the ankle lock, go away lil jimmy your wikipedia copy and paste dont work here. your just another angle hater with no facts who thinks he is always right when he just quotes wikipedia shit that anybody can edit wikipedia.

  • Gary

    @Robbiy no reported date did u not see

    “Angle’s “Anglelock” Ankle Lock debuted in a story with Chris Benoit in mid-2000. They played it up as a devastating hold that Angle had “hidden” in his arsenal, saying that he had been training for MMA after his Olympic days.

    Benoit and Angle went into a Submission Iron Man Match… and the Submissionist Angle was born. His Olympic Slam was downplayed a LOT and turned into the Angle Slam, and shortly there after the “Anglelock” was retro-named as the Ankle Lock.”

    ^ which states when he started using it? and Angle started using the ankle lock in mid-2000 3 out of 4 of the dates i posted WAS AFTER angle started using it, which he stated he didnt use it when Ken was an active wrestler, which is a lie,…prove me wrong? I went out my way, now lets see u prove me wrong

  • Joshy

  • Sean

  • Gary

    bro u need to do some research, i can back everything i say with links…plus me being 14 yrs old is funny, just turned 25 yesterday, (same day is mick foley, 6-7-86),

    FACTS:
    Ken Shamrock debuted in WWE in 1999 USING THE ANKLE LOCK!(as a member of “The Union” I do belive)

    Angle’s “Anglelock” Ankle Lock debuted in a story with Chris Benoit in mid-2000. They played it up as a devastating hold that Angle had “hidden” in his arsenal, saying that he had been training for MMA after his Olympic days.

    Benoit and Angle went into a Submission Iron Man Match… and the Submissionist Angle was born. His Olympic Slam was downplayed a LOT and turned into the Angle Slam, and shortly there after the “Anglelock” was retro-named as the Ankle Lock.

    Ring of Honor (2002)
    Shamrock returned to professional wrestling in March 2002 after being Billed as The World’s Most Dangerous Man, refereeing a Ring of Honor match between Bryan Danielson and Low-Ki. (Whichj after the match he straped on what? THE ANKLE LOCK)

    Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2002, 2004)
    In May 2002, he signed a one year contract with the newly formed Total Nonstop Action Wrestling promotion. On the inaugural TNA pay-per-view on June 19, Shamrock won the vacant NWA World Heavyweight Championship in a Gauntlet for the Gold match(which he won with the ANKLE LOCK), and is recognized as TNA’s first ever World Champion. After feuding with Malice for several weeks, Shamrock left TNA shortly after losing the title to Ron Killings on August 7. He briefly returned to TNA in June 2004 as an ally of Jeff Jarrett before leaving the company and the sport once more.

    Juggalo Championship Wrestling (2009)

    Shamrock made an appearance in the independent Wrestling company Juggalo Championship Wrestling, owned by Psychopathic Records, during their flagship annual event, Bloodymania 3. (have this on dvd and, once again he is seen using the ANKLE LOCK)

    Im not doing to disrespect u like your TRYING to do, but i’ll just let the facts speak for them self… oh yeah, Check….

  • Gary

    @Robby William, Maybe, just MAYBE you should get YOUR FACTS right before TRYING and FAILING to disrespect someone. Kurt was using the ankle lock while Ken was in TNA, also, Ken ha sno retired from pro wrestling, Just 2 months ago he was here in indiana at a wrestling show… So, I guess thats a fail for you and kurt…so let me guess Robby William, your W-E account was hacked?

  • finallythekingjoinsin

    @6burgh he isnt jus takin one month its him only workin like ten days a month

  • Chryogenos

    Wow! I agree with CC, Angle has lost the control of the things he says!

  • scooter

    @robby william kurt used the angle lock in 2002 when ken was there moron

  • Robby William

    hey CC you moron. TNA was founded in 2002, Kurt Angle joined WWE in 1999. your a moron CC maybe you should just kick a pile of bricks and put a plastic bag over your head. get facts before your speak son.

  • CC

    So once again Kurt just talks more bullshit. Firstly, as Chris said, Angle was using the anklelock in WWE while Ken was over in Kurts beloved TNA. Secondly, he wants to make up his mind. Either he was pissed off about it or his account was hacked.
    Honestly, the guy has lost the fucking plot as far as what is and isnt the truth.

  • venom

    @Chris

    Kurt Angle probably wasn’t even sober for this interview. Angle is mad at Orton for using the Angle Slam is because Orton does it better and as a signiture move and not a finsher. When Angle represents TNA in the Olympics, people are going to ask “what is TNA?”

  • chris

    Ken Shamrock was still wrestling while Angle was using the anklelock. He didn’t wait until he was “retired”. What a bullshitter.

  • 6burgh

    i would think u need more than a month 2 train for the olympics.
