Kurt Angle defeated in Thanksgiving special
29 Nov 2013
Kurt Angle was left defeated in an elimination match during the TNA Impact Wrestling Thanksgiving special.
TNA Impact Wrestling presented a Thanksgiving special on 28 November with an 8-man elimination match as the main event.
The 8-man elimination tag team match had two teams. Team Roode, led by Bobby Roode, comprised of Christopher Daniels, Kazarian and Chris Sabin, against Team Angle and his team of Gunner, James Storm, and Magnus.
The popular wrestler, Kurt Angle, was left defeated after his team were eliminated early on in the match and Magnus suffered a knee injury.
Kurt proved why he’s a wrestling favourite when he stepped up to face Roode, Daniels, Kazaarian and Sabin – and it looked like he might take the match until he went a step too far.
Kurt used a steel chair on Roode, which left the referee to call for the bell and Roode to rein as winner.
Although losing out on this match, Kurt was seen participating in One Direction Day last week where he took on One Direction’s Liam Payne in a mock wrestling match.
One Direction’s Liam Payne and Harry Styles are said to be huge fans of wrestling and posed for pictures with Kurt on the day.
TNA Impact Wrestling will be touring the UK in 2014 during January and February.
