Rulon Gardener is 1-0 so I can't see how you can say he didn't do well.
Actually if we just go by the wrestlers, since Angle is not a judoka, they have a 4/3 success to failure ratio. Not that bad.
Also I don't think Lungu ever competed in the Olympics.

Yeah, but most of those guys had the majority of their wins in the early days of MMA...and haven't had their bodies destroyed by prowrestling.
And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

I think it's just a shame that Prowrestling grounded this otherwise great athlete's body to hell. Fucking waste really.

Millions of dollars made in pro wrestling probably softens the blow

Probably not going to happen - he's signed with the TNA promotion. Which I think is good - the lighter travel schedule will let him get his personal life back in order and hopefully get him healthy again.

Turns out the whole thing was a swerve to keep his TNA debut a secret. Which I think they pulled off very well considering the buzz beforehand in the MMA world and the massive buzz now in the pro wretling world.

apparently he isn't signed to an exclusive contract - rumor is his contract allows him to compete in MMA...
going to be interesting to see if he can pull it off - I still say if he decides to compete he'll be a force to be reckoned with...

Kurt angle would be an idiot to fight in MMA, this is much better for him

TNA has a much lighter schedule than WWE which reduces the chance of injury. Seeing as he'll be doing little for the first month other than promos, he'd be stupid to fight MMA.
Happy birthday to me.

A lighter schedule in TNA won't neccessarily mean that there's less chance of injury. TNA allows banned moves such as piledrivers.
If TNA cares about Angle, his matches will look a lot like Stone Cold Steve Austin's when Austin came back from a broken neck. That is if TNA cares about Angle.
