Kurt Angle Accuses WWE of Taking Ideas from TNA

Posted by Matt Boone October 30, 2012 21 Comments

- TNA star Kurt Angle is accusing WWE of taking ideas from TNA after he saw the storyline with AJ Lee and John Cena, referring to TNA’s recent Claire Lynch storyline. Angle tweeted:

“WWE production team using @EBischoff’s innovative multi-camera backstage filming technique with OneManBand segment?”

“Staged “affair” between AJ Lee & @JohnCena, w/date pic & hotel video? WWE outright lifting TNA concepts?”

Angle sent the tweets to TNA staffer Anthony Maurizio and President Dixie Carter.

      Oh grow up Angle. TNA has been ripping ideas from WWE for 10 years. The latest being the Aces & 8’s (NWO anyone?). Fuck me, this is what happens in the wrestling biz.

            Dont be mad because you got put in your place on that one mr. kendall… WWE tried to have the nWo… but it just didnt work. The proper group to name from WWE that they would be ripping off would be Nexus.

      • TNA steals from FX

        Aces & 8’s = really bad Sons of Anarchy

    • I can’t beleive it.

      Did you see where the WWE had a title change Sunday night? Yeah, totally ripped off TNA. TNA’s been doing title changes for years…

      Angle is right. WWE saw how crappy the TNA storylines were and said “people think thats crappy we can do alot worse.”

        i agree wwe is now copying tna ….when its been tna jocking wwe storylines in the past couple years…..but at the end of the day tna is no competition for wwe so wwe doesnt have to worry about producing a great product .just my opinion.Thats y i miss ECW and wCw so much .It pushed vince too be the best .

        • PPete

          and oh yeah kurt angle is my favorite wrestler ever and hes a legend so fuck everybody who cant respect his opinion.

        • Doomsday77

          ECW was total shit.

    • King James

      Wrestling companies use ideas from each other. That’s not news.

    • Fred Flintstone

      Kurt’s got a point! If there’s one thing I’ve learn in the past 2 months from watching pro wrestling it’s that you can never trust anyone named AJ!

    • stjohn

      rather its TNA that is just coming up to grow like WWE

      Wow Kurt, do you not remember a little love thing between you and Stephanie a few years ago? You know, when you were good at wrestling and not being arrested every other weekend…

    • Big Dick Doug

      TNA Aces & 8’s… WCW NWO? Come on angle…idiot

    • Your Teacher

      Bischoff used to do this all the time when in WCW. It was so blatant, like when Jericho was going to come in as “the millenium man” they started calling Sycho Sid that exact thing, ridiculous, but as always McMahon trumped him because they changed it to Y2J, which became way more famous. They key here, is like anything in business, having the original idea means nothing, as soon as you go public with it, it will be copied, so the only thing that matters is who does it best.

      TNA have you ever heard of Undisputed Champion Chris Jericho and general manager Stephanie McMahon Storylinie?
