TNA Wrestling today announced that Hall of Famer and former champion Kurt Angle has signed a new contract with the company.
“Kurt Angle’s arrival nearly a decade ago put TNA on the map. Now Kurt leads a fresh, young IMPACT WRESTLING locker room into a whole new era on Destination America,” said TNA President Dixie Carter. “Once Kurt steps inside those ropes there is no greater talent in professional wrestling.”
Angle has teased an announcement for two months saying he is choosing the deal that best fits him. Rumors were that WWE wanted him on a full time job but Angle was hoping for a part time gig, something that WWE wasn’t interested in. Angle and WWE parted ways not in the best of terms in 2006.
“I’m extremely excited to remain with TNA Wrestling,” said Angle. “The driving force behind my signing is the honesty, great communication and positive changes being made by Dixie Carter and John Gaburick. Things are moving upward and forward at TNA, and 2015 will be a great one for all of us at IMPACT WRESTLING.”
