WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle remains one of the most technically-gifted pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He had arguably the best rookie year in WWE history as he won the WWE Championship within a year and competed at the highest level for many years after that.
Angle would leave WWE in 2006 and made his way to TNA Wrestling, where he spent a decade in the company, surpassing the seven years he stayed in WWE. He also had instant classics in TNA, including matches against the likes of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuiness, and many more.
Kurt Angle will be present on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown as part of his birthday celebration, which will no doubt have a lot of nostalgia elements in it. PW Insider reports that Gable Steveson is in town as well. It was not confirmed that he is planned for the show. It is also very possible that Steveson’s debut will go down tonight.
Gable Steveson was spotted in Pittsburgh, PA earlier today, so it may be he’s in town for Smackdown. Like Kurt Angle, who is having a birthday celebration tonight as part of the FOX broadcast, Steveson is an amazing collegiate wrestler.
