Three-Hour Impact, Kurt Angle Signs New Contract
— According to Spike TV’s schedule, Impact Wrestling on October 6th, 2011 will be a 3-hour episode, airing from 9 PM to midnight.
— During a recent interview, Kurt Angle says that he has signed a new three year deal with TNA. Here is an excerpt from the interview…
“I was taking classes and I was getting very serious about it. I was also sportscasting — I was a sportscaster in Pittsburgh for Fox, just trying to get in front of the camera a little bit. Then pro wrestling came around and I took a shot at that, and I didn’t realize I was going to become that good. I made a lot of money, thank God, and I stuck with it, but every time I had a movie where my name would come up for some reason, I wasn’t allowed to do it due to scheduling reasons in the WWE. So with TNA, they give me the opportunity to go ahead and do movies and if it conflicts with the schedule they work around it. It’s a much better situation for me. So I actually signed a new three-year deal today with TNA. I’m going to stick with TNA.”
