During last night’s (Fri. March 3, 2017) Northeast Wrestling (NEW) Wrestlefest 21 event at Crosby High School in Waterbury, Connecticut, former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes and Class of 2017 WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle went head-to-head in a steel cage main event.
The bout is reported to be Angle’s last independent wrestling show before he is inducted to the Hall Of Fame, and possibly returns to WWE TV in a more regular role. The event also featured appearances from the likes of Jerry Lawler, The Godfather, Ryback, as well as Mike & Maria Bennett, however, it was Rhodes’ attempt at a moonsault on Angle off the top of the cage that stole the show.
Cody would go on to win the match and offer Angle a spot in The Bullet Club. You can check out the insane maneuver here:
