Kurt Angle and Dixie Carter both confirmed via their social media pages that Angle will be facing Bobby Roode and Drew Galloway later this month, in what’s being billed as his TNA “farewell tour.” Angle made his intentions clear last year that he would be retiring from TNA after his contract expires this month.
The Olympic gold medalist will be facing Galloway on Jan. 29th at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Then he’ll take on Bobby Roode on Jan. 30th at SSE Wembley in London. This tour of the UK will end Angle’s contract with TNA.
Angle first announced his retirement from TNA back in November. His first post-TNA gig will be as a commentator for Bellator MMA’s live Spike TV show on February 19. The main event is Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock, and Kurt Angle has stated he may take a fight with Shamrock later this year. In November, the former WWE & TNA champion signed a deal with a publisher for a new autobiography.
