Well, the forum is giving me the message to post. since i was reading all of these at the time i guess i'll do it here. I wrestled in college at the same time as Angle, he's 3 years older. I don't follow pro wrestling at all, but i'll tell you from up close experience, Angle is a monster. I know he's 38, but I think people here are comparing him to the cream of the crop in MMA. Let first compare him to guys who aren't ranked yet. Angle could easily compete with those guys and grow in MMA ability. I completely agree that because of his fame that he may jump right into real competition, and that may pose serious problems for him. But make no mistake, Angle is a bad dude on the mat, the kind everyone dropped weight to avoid. Can it translate? I'd love to see.
