Why Hogan Was Written Off TV, Angle Compares Joe To Benoit, More

– TNA wrestler Crimson was on WREG-TV in Memphis, TN this morning promoting Saturday night’s BaseBrawl event at AutoZone Park.

– During the latest Impact Wrestling Post Show, Kurt Angle noted that Samoa Joe is very similar to Chris Benoit.

“[Samoa] Joe and I know how to trade off submissions really well,” Angle said. “I compare Joe… he’s a much bigger type of Chris Benoit, he had that ability. He knows how to trade off submissions, he knows a lot of submissions. I enjoy wrestling Joe because it’s such a challenge.”

– TNA’s angle with Aces of Eight “attacking” Hulk Hogan on Thursday’s Impact Wrestling was because Hogan is set to undergo yet another back surgery. Hogan has had a number of surgeries on his back over the years mainly to remove bone spurs.
