Kurt Angle was scheduled to do commentary for this Saturday’s (January 28, 2017) 5 Star Wrestling’s Dominant Wrestling TV show on Spike TV UK at 8pm ET. Angle was set to appear along with other well known names such as Rey Mysterio, Drew Galloway, John Morrison and PJ Black, however, earlier this morning (Monday, January 23, 2017) 5 Star announced on their official Facebook page that Angle has withdrawn from the scheduled appearance:
At 16:04 today I received a call from Kurt Angle’s management team confirming the rumours that Kurt will not be commentating on the debut episode of Dominant Wrestling, which airs live on Spike TV at 8pm this Saturday, from the Dundee Ice Arena.
It’s a shame but we would like to congratulate Kurt on his Hall of Fame appointment.
Losing a star as respected as Kurt is obviously a blow to us but fortunately he was booked as a commentator rather than a wrestler so it’s not like this will make much of a difference to this historic event.
Fans at the Dundee Ice Arena and indeed around the UK, will still get to witness John Morrison issuing an open challenge for his 5 Star Championship and with megastars such as Rey Mysterio, Drew Galloway, Carlito, PJ Black, Nick Aldis and Moose on the show, anything can happen.
Greg Lambert, with his encyclopaedic knowledge of wrestling will still lead the broadcast team as planned.
