TNA sent out the following today:

Kurt Angle To Attend “The Rumble On The Rails” | USA vs. Iran vs. Russia | NYC May 15

Olympic Gold Medalist, multi-time World Heavyweight Champion and TNA IMPACT WRESTLING superstar Kurt Angle will attend “The Rumble On The Rails” – USA vs. IRAN vs. RUSSIA – on May 15 at Grand Central Terminal in New York City.

Three of the world’s top powers will come together in solidarity in this historic wrestling event, which is a showcase competition as part of World Wrestling Month, declared by the international wrestling federation (FILA).

Each year, the United States, Iran and Russia are among the world’s best wrestling nations. Since the IOC Executive Board recommendation that wrestling not be a core sport at the 2020 Olympic Games, these three nations have worked closely together to help support Olympic wrestling. Although their governments do not always agree, the wrestling leaders in these nations have a strong working relationship.

TNA’s Kurt Angle joins other celebrated USA Olympians attending the event including Dan Gable, Bruce Baumgartner, John Smith, Tom Brand and Rulon Gardner.

TNA’s Television Production team will be on hand to film Kurt’s involvement at the historic competition, which will air here on our website, ImpactWrestling.com
