Fans who were looking forward to seeing wrestling legend Kurt Angle in person at the 5 Star Wrestling event scheduled for this weekend received some bad news on Monday.
Angle was scheduled and advertised to appear at the debut episode of 5 Star Wrestling’s new series, “Dominant Wrestling,” which will air on Spike TV, this weekend in Dundee, Scotland. According to the official Facebook page of 5 Star Wrestling, however, he cancelled the appearance this week.
Below is the official announcement that the folks from 5 Star Wrestling issued via social media earlier today:
At 16:04 today I received a call from Kurt Angle’s management team confirming the rumours that Kurt will not be commentating on the debut episode of Dominant Wrestling, which airs live on Spike TV at 8pm this Saturday, from the Dundee Ice Arena.
It’s a shame but we would like to congratulate Kurt on his Hall of Fame appointment.
Losing a star as respected as Kurt is obviously a blow to us but fortunately he was booked as a commentator rather than a wrestler so it’s not like this will make much of a difference to this historic event.
Fans at the Dundee Ice Arena and indeed around the UK, will still get to witness John Morrison issuing an open challenge for his 5 Star Championship and with megastars such as Rey Mysterio, Drew Galloway, Carlito, PJ Black, Nick Aldis and Moose on the show, anything can happen.
Greg Lambert, with his encyclopaedic knowledge of wrestling will still lead the broadcast team as planned.
