Kurt Angle, in a radio appearance promoting TNA Wrestling's upcoming PPV, also briefly talked about Brock Lesnar in MMA. He called Brock a "mental midget" and said he'd win if little to no pressure was on him.

WHO CARES ABOUT WHAT KURT ANGLE SAID ABOUT BROCK LESNAR

First of all, how in the world does this article qualify as "news"?! Second of all, I am tired of the endless "he said, she said" rumor mill gossip fest. Third of all, I do not care about ballet dancers, so let's try to keep the news section focused on professional fighters, not "professional" wrestlers.

thats a little harsh as i think some people are interested in what people who know people have to say about them, in another piece of the puzzle kind of way. then again i didnt bother to read the article so...

Better a 'mental midget' than a literal faggot.

I'm not sold on or defending Brock Lesnar, but to say he crumbles under pressure is a dumb comment. Being at his level in NCAA, he has been under some serious pressure and clearly performed.

He crumbles under pressue in a fake sport.

Okay?

And Kurt Angle's opinion means what, exactly?

chokes when under pressure? Yeah, just look at his collegiate wrestling career. He was an amazing college athlete. Besides, how could you say someone chokes when you're basing your opinion on "wrestling." It's totally fake BS and I could give a damn less about what he did in the WWE or whatever its called now. That's nothing but a soap opera for 7 year old boys and retarded men who still will argue about its authenticity. I hate wrestling and have never liked it, even when I was a child, but I don't think Kurt's opinion means anything considering what he's basing it on. Maybe he should step into the octogon and see how he does under pressure in a REAL fight.

Angle stays relevant ONLY by being a tool about the abilities of other fighters. It seems to me more and more that being a jerk isn't just a ploy by Angle but is actually how he is in real life (ala Pros vs. Joes). I would love to see UFC sign Angle to a one fight contract and let someone knock the taste for MMA out of his mouth.

Dude, chill out. Turns out you have to share this site with the rest of the world...

And I dare you to call a real professional wrestler a ballet dancer... You'd be picking your teeth up afterwards.

You little MMA elitists are ruining this site. You cannot make up for the fact that you are a new fan by trashing everything that ISNT MMA.

The real fans know the ties of MMA to Pro Wrestling all over the world, maybe you should spend a little more time researching this sport that you love so much, rather than knocking wrestlers as a whole. If you dont like it, fine, but to claim that it has no business here...

People may think the same about you...

(and YOU are JT War Wagon? Man, you need a refresher course in the basics... We dont bash fighters there.)

See? Another guy thats misinformed... Angle said he wanted a fight, the IFL came calling... They had a meeting... IFL offered up Ken Shamrock... Angle said he was just entertaining offers, and didnt want to debut against someone so experienced.

End of story,. There was no official offer. It was publicity for Angle, as well as the IFL. Period.

he was doin radio for publicity for upcoming tna ppv. why wouldnt he call out lesnar. that will draw fans. and to bash pro wrestling is somewhat retarded to me. face it if there were no WWE then seriously would mma be a sport?? there wouldnt be ufc or ifl on tv. be thankful for wrestling. it may not be what you like but its entertainment. its in there name. they dont call it a sport why would you.
