Impact Wrestling Scores Best Rating In Months, Kurt Angle On Wrestling Being Fake & More
– Thursday’s TNA Impact Wrestling episode scored a 1.1 cable TV rating, which is their best rating in months. The show averaged 1.318 million viewers, up from last week’s 1.241 million viewers.
– Kurt Angle recently spoke with NDTV.com about people calling professional wrestling “fake.” Here is what he had to say:
“If one calls it fake, then it’s an insult to the commitment of a pro wrestler. It is (an insult if you call it fake). It is rather pre-determined. We both know who the winners are going to be. It is one of the barbaric form of athletics I have done. In that ring, we wrestle on woods like this (points to the table in front). Imagine getting slammed on that. So, we have to learn how to avoid being injured when getting slammed. Pro Wrestling is the toughest I have ever done. I broke my neck four times, broke my arms, legs. I had a great career there and I am proud of it.”
