Kurt Angle & Samoa Joe - One of TNA's Greatest Rivalries

Professional wrestling fans young and old, let’s take a trip back in time to October 6, 2006. It was on this night that one of, if not the greatest TNA rivalry, was born.

During that night’s episode of IMPACT, former WWE Heavyweight Champion, Kurt Angle, made his TNA debut.

Angle was one of the most decorated performers in all professional wrestling and had recently left the WWE.

The company, long heralded as the number  two wrestling promotion in America, finally had a megastar actively  choose them over the WWE. It’s safe to say wrestling fans were intrigued to see what the Olympic Hero would do in the land of TNA.

Ready to meet the former WWE Champion was a man long proclaimed as one of TNA’s toughest competitors, Samoa Joe.

Joe & Angle engaged in numerous battles  throughout their time in the IMPACT Zone and each time they stepped in  the ring together, the intensity was at an all-time high.
