Anyone who knows much about Kurt Angle knows that he is a very colorful storyteller. Basically, the truth might not be as important as the story to Kurt, who is a pro wrestler for the TNA organization. It's an old pro wrestling adage (coined by Dick Murdoch, I believe) - "If a story's worth tellin', it's worth colorin' up a little bit". Angle did an interview with UK publication The Void where he ventured further of the path of realism and actually claimed that Dana White wanted him to fight Kimbo Slice. Here, read for yourself:

I called him (White) a couple of year later – I was getting a little tired of wrestling – I said "Hey, I’m ready", so we had another meeting and he had me do a physical, and he threw a great offer at me, but said "I need you in four and a half weeks."

I said "I can"t do that. You’ve gotta give me 3-6 months," but he said "I need you in four a half weeks," so I said "Well then, we’re not going to be able to do this."

Somebody wanted ratings if this is true.

Idk why put it together, neither are MMA fighters.

Seems like some EliteXC stuff.

I bet there is a kernel of truth behind the story.

Didn't read the article but I could believe Dana saying with a win over Kimbo it'd improve his MMA career chances.

I would like to hear Dana's reaction to this before I jump the gun,but Angle seems to want to be in the MMA spotlight without ever really being a part of the sport.
TNA is now what WCW was towards their demise only it took TNA probably half the time to get their.
