WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle remains one of the most technically gifted professional wrestlers to ever set foot inside the squared circle. He had arguably the best rookie year in WWE history as he won the WWE Championship in one year and competed at the highest level for many years after that.
Angle would leave WWE in 2006 and headed to TNA Wrestling, where he spent a decade with the company, surpassing the seven years that he remained in WWE. He also had instant classics on TNA, including matches against players like AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuiness, and many more.
Angle would return to WWE in 2017 and also had a short career as a competitor in the ring, before finally returning to WrestleMania 35 in 2019. He lost his last match against Baron Corbin, in a move that Angle really regrets until this date.
According to a report from PWInsider, it was revealed that Impact Wrestling opened negotiations with Kurt Angle last year about the idea of Angle returning to face Ken Shamrock.
When we interviewed him last year, he didn’t rule out the idea of guest appearances. Impact Wrestling opened negotiations with him last year with the idea that Angle would return to fight Ken Shamrock, but they did not reach an agreement, as we were told that Angle chose not to participate in the discussions. So we may not have seen the last of him in the ring, but as a full-time artist, it’s not happening.
Mickie James Angers WWE with “offensive” photo?
Mickie James felt terrible after being part of the list of Superstars who were recently fired by WWE. Mickie also just leaked dark information about the company and what they were “too scared to do.” It’s quite shocking to see WWE in a different light when superstar after superstar starts talking about the injustices that lie ahead. Triple H leaks WWE firing after “burying” a diva.
Mickie James is currently furious at WWE. Any of us would also be angry if we were fired from our jobs for no good reason. Mickie recently took to Twitter to vent his frustration with how the firing was handled while tweeting a photo of his severance package.
The severance package Mickie received was a box and garbage bag filled with what I believe was her ring and locker room belongings. Mickie stated: “Dear @VinceMcMahon, I’m not sure if you know, I received my @WWE care package today. Thank you. #AlwaysBelsedandGrateful #WomensWrestlingMatters”
James later stated that he was selling his shirts on Pro Wrestling Tees that WWE would not post as they say “MILF” on them, as well as James in seductive poses. WWE, which is now aimed at children, did not want to remove the jerseys.
Oh I forgot … I still have a @PWTees shop for merchandise that they were too scared to do. I think there will be a #earthday offer today. You’re welcome. #MilfMoney #MondayNightMilf 🥛 & 🍪 anyone? pic.twitter.com/aQeMU4g5sB

John Cone has been fired as Senior Manager of the Talent Relations Department. He still has a job as a referee. PWInsider broke the news of these layoffs.
Vince McMahon praised WWE management during today’s earnings call: “Like any other form of entertainment or sport, we came out of COVID. At first, we were in survival mode, but we found a new life. Sure, we saw this as an opportunity to rethink the way we do business and open what I call a WWE treasure chest. The only way to do that is by having the best management team in WWE history.
We have that team. A team that is innovative, a team that drives revenue, and has reorganized our company in a more efficient way to take advantage of new revenue streams, new online platforms, new consumer products, new content creation, and new opportunities to expand our portfolio. of media rights worldwide. I’m always excited about our business and I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited than I am right now. “
Stephanie McMahon posts a photo of a ’embarrassing’ diva
Stephanie McMahon apologized to Mickie James, retweeting her embarrassing photo showing the garbage bag sent to her after her firing. Triple H fired an employee for the photo.
Stephanie said: “@MickieJames, I am ashamed that you or anyone else is treated this way. I apologize personally and on behalf of @WWE. The person in charge is no longer in our company ”.
WWE also fired Samoa Joe last week. Sean Waltman said on his Pro Wrestling 4 Life podcast: “Yes, [Samoa Joe] sure, ”Waltman said. “People are discouraged. I also. The thing is, this is Samoa Joe man. He’s a leading player anywhere as far as I’m concerned, and it opens up a lot of possibilities. I can’t wait to see where it ends. “
“I could see ROH. It has a history with ROH and even Impact. I guess it depends on what they offer. Here’s the thing, they released a dozen people or whatever at once. Some people might think, “Well, you put excess talent on the market,” but there is no excess talent like Samoa Joe on the market, no matter how many people are released. “
WWE also fired Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, Bo Dallas, Mojo Rawley, and many others last week.
