- Randy Orton wrote the following on Twitter last night in response to Kurt Angle’s comments:

Everythings been done before as far as ‘moves’ go in the sports entertainment. I want to thank SCSA for the ‘Thesz Press’.

And I know for a fact that SCSA got the ‘Thesz Press’ from Dutch Mantel.

Point being, instead of taking offense to someone using your move, consider it a sign of respect.

Btw does anyone know what Ken Shamrocks finish was? I believe Jack Swagger used ankle lock outta respect for Ken?

    @nicholasg lmao orton did a great job vs angle. angle almost killed his ankle when he broke his ankle 2 smackdowns fter wm22. orton so called training hasn’t helped him for getting injuried all time.

  • Nicholas G

    Well it is about dam time that a WWE guy start standing up for there company and not let this old WWE guys keep taking cheat shots at there product. Oh I love how the internet fans seem to think John Cena and Randy Orton are both the same type of wrestler. What I mean it Randy Orton is not afraid of Kurt Angle and can go toe to toe with Angle any day. Why because Orton has also been well trained in wrestling lets not forget that the guy was a Marine and the Marine are trained to kill at anytime. So Randy Orton does know a few good moves an it not afraid of Kurt Angle and Kurt know this. Which is why he is starting to backtrack his statements saying he got heck. It is like Kurt Angle is back taking drugs which is why WWE has no interest. Also because Kurt Angle is an ass.

    I would say angle owned orton every time they step in ring in 2005-2006. angle even broke orton’s ankle that’s getting taken to school!

    @Adam, thay may be true but WWE is supossed to be the #1 brand of wrestling, yet they’re crowding their shows with promos. It doesn’t add up.

    @Estaban, TNA may have WWE “rejects” but WWE can’t use any of their young talent right. They resort to having the usual suspects crowd the top of the food chain so I don’t know what’s worse.

    @Dr. Pimp

    When did my opinion come back? What does that even mean? Your response was….whack.

  • Logan


    RKO: 1 vs Angle: 0

    Sounds like RKO has matured compared to his “old self”.

    When did ur opinion come back? I didn’t really care.

    “And I quote IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU CARE!.. fact of the matter is Bank Balance!. JJ & Carter family?? Now Vinny!.

    TNA got ALL WWE rejects can’t cut it pulling oldie to name a few

    Brian Kendrick
    Brother Devon & Bully Ray team 3D
    Chris Sabin
    Christy Hemme
    Eric Bischoff & Terry “hulk oldie” Hogan
    Ken Adnderson
    Matt (coocoo CRAZY) Hardy
    Jeff (Dope Drugz) Hardy

    Shall I go on!.

    FACT of the matter is you watch low budget TNA where Terry & Eric are trying to re-create the good old WCW days without Ted turners AOL backing. The are FAILING the red line well below the bread basket late payments to staff!…….

    Says it all really!. I would say would you work for free (but im guessing due to you haveing a low brain wattage 2watts your sit on your bum all day)

  • M.C.

    *face, not fact. Sorry

  • M.C.

    The fact that orton said swagger uses the ankle lock in tribute & not to angle is a true slap in the fact of kurt

    @Dr. Pimp Only promos? Oh you mean like the ones TNA Impact has been doing? And I believe they’ve been doing what, about 10 minutes of wrestling in a two hour show? Not to mention having someone tripped out in a main event and not knowing where the hell he is. You also have TNA’s future wrestlers completely overshadowed by veterans and shitty storylines and booking. Where’s Jay Lethal? Where are the Motor City Machine Guns? Yeah, TNA is the future of wrestling. Fucking retard.

    Kurt is a great wrestler, but Randy Orton was spot on in that statement. You’d hardly see much original moves in wrestling these days.

  • Chris E.

    Angle is upset that his moves are being used because he is a current wrestler on national television. Doesn’t Shawn Michaels use every top stars’ moves whenever they leave WWE? I think Michaels (post Rockers) original finisher was like the “Angle Slam” before he changed to the Super-Kick.

  • Dr. Pimp

    When did ur opinion come back? I didn’t really care.

  • Dr. Pimp

    Wow u and everyone who take up for WWE’s horrible mess of a PPV and weekly shows are blind and without brain cells. Go ahead and support a company that the owner doesn’t want to associate with wrestling anymore. Soon, the whole fucking show will be promos only since they only have 1 to 2 matches now. By the way ur smart/oh wait comment was rather dumb and senseless. This will be you “I LOVE WWE! WHERE RANDY ORTON AND JOHN CENA DEBATE TO EACH OTHER FOR TWO HOURS! ITS GREAT! I LOVE IT!I PAID MY HARD EARNED CASH TO SEE THEM TALK TO EACH OTHER BECAUSE I CAN’T SEE THAT ANYWHERE ELSE!” Go ahead and enjoy it while I watch AJ styles, Kurt Angle, and the rest of TNA have MATCHES.

  • Sumit

    Kurt is a great wrestler and can still deliver great matches. I guess he is frustrated that he is working for a company which is going nowhere. Kurt should try to maintain his dignity by not getting into this. Lets face it WWE is a better show then TNA. And yeah i dont think Undertaker would tweet tonight and crib about HHH using his finisher in a match against him :p

  • Truthiness

    When did calling something “whack” come back? I didn’t get the memo.

    Kurt got owned because he was being an idiot.

  • Patriots Mocker

    Someone should tell Angle that Drinking and Typing may even be worse than drinking and driving… considering how this is making him look like an even bigger dumbass…

  • Matthew

    Damn, Orton just put Angle in his place. Can you say “checkmate, motherfucker!”. Orton is right, Shamrock was the first one to you the ankle-lock in the WWF/WWE. All people like Angle, Jack Swagger, Jeff Jarrett and even that little pussy Cole have done is slightly modify it by lying down on their back and wrapping their leg around the ankle during the lock, which is still the same thing Shamrock did on occassion when he was in the WWF/WWE, and did it all the time in his early days of the UFC. The 3 german suplexes in a row, that’s a tough one, and correct me if I’m wrong, but if my memory serves me correctly, I remember Taz using it in his ECW and WWF/WWE days, but at the same time, the late Eddie Guerrero and the late “Canadian Cripple/Rabid Wolverine” Chris Benoit were both using them in their ECW, WCW, and WWF/WWE days. So Angle, for you to make those tounge-in-cheek remarks about other people stealing other people moves, is hypocritical of you when you do the same damn thing!

  • Justin

    I didn’t watch Wrestlemania. Did a wrestler get arrested for driving drunk as well?


  • CC

    While it saddens me that Kurt is in the wrong and Orton just owned him, I have to give credit where credit is due on this one.
    Props to Orton for coming up with an intelligent rebuttal.

  • Valo487

    When Kurt can stop getting arrested he can take shots at other people, I didn’t know they let you use twitter when you’re locked up in county.

    Ha ha,Orton’s so cool man!
    Own that bald eagle!

  • RAW GM

    Angle Vs Orton on twitter

  • Myers

    I wonder where Angle came up with the idea for the 3 german suplexes in a row….

  • kammy

  • Assassino

    @Dr. Pimp then i guess you wont be watching wwe anymore/ oh wait your probably someone who complains about how terrible wwe then you watch it week after week so do everyone a favour and just watch it and shutup.

  • Jimbo

    Angle just got OWNED!

  • Dr. Pimp

    Stone COld 2.0, i mean Randall can never fuck with Kurt Angle. Take that slow talking, i’m a little viper stalking my prey whack bullshit out of here. Orton and Cena both need to go fuck each other and go away.

  • Dr. Pimp

    did you even watch wrestlemania 27, where 99% of the matches sucked ass from so called “awesome” talent?

  • rick

    Who would of thought 6 years ago that Orton would become classier than Angle.

  • dgnr83d
