But he will not even sniff the Olympic team at this point. Too much time has passed and Jake Varner is atop the class. Varner is a beast and I do not think Angle has a chance against him at this point.
^^sniff sniff, mr wrestling is killing our hopes wahh lol^^

Welcome aboard, and hopefully it stays on the road just long enough. Regarding him in wrestling, ahh man, you probably don't watch wrestling, but idk, maybe if you watch one of his matches against Chris Benoit, it would sum up his intensity and his wholesome entertainment value. It's kind of like an MMA exhibition match or something ala fedor vs mousasi/Aoki

Yea, I didn't know this either. It's crazy though because even through all that turmoil, he made sure the show went on. A little more reason to respect him.
