Home » TNA News » Kurt Angle Slams CM Punk For Referring To TNA As An Indy Promotion

During a Q&A session with fans on Saturday at the Chicago Comic Con in Rosemont, Illinois, WWE Champion CM Punk implied that TNA Wrestling is a minor league wrestling company.

When asked who he would work with if it could be any single wrestler, Punk replied “Samoa Joe.” He was then asked which independent wrestler he would like to see in WWE. Punk again replied, “Samoa Joe.” When the fan noted that Samoa Joe works for TNA Wrestling, Punk remarked, “I know. You said indy, didn’t you?”

Kurt Angle, who competes for TNA Wrestling, was not pleased with Punk’s statements. He tweeted, “Punk wants to Say Tna Is An Indy League? I Was On top in Wwe when You Were trying to Get a Job Anywhere. It Was My Choice to go to Tna. …

“If I ever See You Punk, Hide Bitch!”

    First off nobody was talking to Kurt Angle. Why does he have to keep sticking his nose where it don’t belong. What did Punk hurt his feeling. I think the truth is that WWE don’t want Kurt Angle back. If they did he would be there right now. I mean look how many old WWE guys went to TNA and end up coming back. Yet Kurt Angle is still there why because he keeps pissing WWE top guys an like it or not Punk is WWE top guys. I really believe Kurt needs to mind his own business because he makes himself look bad everytime he rants on CM Punk. I mean Kurt Angle strong words from sitting behind a computer. At least Cm Punk would say the same stuff about you to your face.

    Kurt Angle = 100% CORRECT

    WWE may perform their follies in front of larger crowds … but then again, cartoons ARE still pretty popular these days.

    @Chris

    Right. First off, most pro wrestlers are legitimately tough guys. Not “tough guys”, but actually TOUGH people. You have to actually be able to DO the things they fake, to be able to FAKE them convincingly. That is simply logic.

    But beyond that, your MMA matches are on youtube? Riiiiiiight.

    And even if you are a low level MMA fighter, dude, CM Punk has a legit background in martial arts. That wasn’t just part of his gimmick. He did martial arts growing up as an outlet before he got into Pro Wrestling. Get a clue. He’d take you apart in under a minute.

    lol you can’t just say my mma matches are on youtube if you’d like to see them. you got to leave more information than that what’s your ring name i can type mma matches and i’m sure i’d pull up 1,000 results

  • chris

    LOL at people on here saying Punk could take on Angle in a fight, shit I would kill Punk in a fight. My MMA matches are on youtube if any would like to see them. Now if I see Punk I will beat the crap out of him.

  • SYM

    I guess Kurt Offended a bunch of CM Punk fans, just look at these comments.

  • marclerouxxx

    Drama has always been involved when it comes to the reality of wrestling. We just hear about it more now because of Social Media. It’s every wrestlers way of speaking their mind, plain out complain, or like Kevin Nash saying things to get a pop out of the internet world lol

  • Tyler(:

    I normally think CM Punk is boring but that was just plain funny.

  • Dave

    Kurt.
    It is widely known that the reason you left WWE was because your body couldn’t handle the schedule, and you had so many long standing injuries, WWE couldn’t get insurance for you.
    The move to TNA wasn’t as much “your choice”, as you make out.

    ROCKY YOUR MOMMA´S IS LIKE A VACUNE CLEANER SHE SUCKS, SHE BLOW AND GET LAID IN THE CLOSET!! DUMBASS!!!

  • Little Jimmy

  • Rocky sucks

    Ramses u and kurt are actually 100% wrong u dumbass

  • d

    Punk left tna on bad terms so I’m not surprised by his remark.

  • RAMSES 2

    you have to admite kurt angle is 100% right in this one!!!

  • Bill

    Angle shouldn’t make dumb threats, but if Punk implied that TNA was an independent promotion in a derrogatory sense, then he is wrong. I doubt he meant anything bad, but I will say that I don’t consider it an indy promotion.
