UPDATE: Mick Foley posted to his Facebook page today professing that he missed seeing Kurt Angle on Raw. Check out the post below:
WHO ELSE MISSES KURT ANGLE?
No one does a better job of putting together video packages than WWE – and they did it twice on this past Monday’s RAW. The Daniel Bryan piece was just tremendous, and accomplished exactly what it was supposed to; reinforcing the bond Daniel shares with the WWE Universe, and making many of us (including me) clamor for a Bryan victory at “Hell in a Cell”. The Cena career retrospective was excellent also, but may have created an unintended response. For if you guys and gals are like me (not talking about the love handles and the missing ear, but about being a huge wrestling fan) your first response was “wow, I miss Kurt Angle!”
He was on the video for less than 20 seconds, but that was all it took to remind every long-time fan of what a huge part of WWE Kurt was. I know he’s had an amazing career since leaving WWE, but if my own departure from WWE proved one thing, it’s that a good percentage of the WWE Universe only wants to see their WWE Superstars inside WWE. That’s not a knock on TNA. But while many enjoy Kurt on a regular basis on Thursdays, I just know a Kurt Angle return to WWE – whether it’s a one-time match, an extended run, or a very worthy induction into the WWE Hall of Fame – will be huge! I miss Kurt Angle in WWE…and, based and so do you.
