Kurt Angle wins TNA World title from Lashley on Impact

Kurt Angle made history on last night’s televised Impact show as he won the TNA World Heavyweight title for a record sixth time, beating Lashley in the main event of the show which was taped at the end of January in London, England.

Angle’s TNA future was in doubt towards the end of 2014 when his TNA deal expired in September. A return to the WWE was teased but Angle eventually decided to stick with the company he had been working for for the past eight years.

The Olympic gold medalist last held the title in mid-2011, winning it from Sting at the Hardcore Justice pay-per-view, but then losing it to James Storm in October on an episode of Impact. He has over a combined 500 days with the title over the course of his six title runs so far and for history purposes, Angle is listed as the first ever TNA World champion.
