WWE Hall of Famer wants TNA to BRING BACK iconic gimmick

Last updated

In a recent episode of “The Kurt Angle Show,” WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle shared his thoughts on the potential return of the six-sided ring in TNA Wrestling.

Angle, a celebrated figure in the wrestling world, has a unique perspective on this topic, having had a distinguished career in both WWE and TNA.

After a remarkable seven-year tenure with WWE, Kurt Angle transitioned to TNA Wrestling, marking one of the company’s most significant signings.

The Six-Sided Ring: A Game Changer

Angle believes that reintroducing the six-sided ring could be a positive move for TNA Wrestling. He explained that the ring’s unique design contributes to a faster-paced and more action-packed wrestling experience.

The smaller ring size means less dead time and more dynamic interactions between wrestlers. This format, according to Angle, could bring a fresh and exciting element to TNA’s matches:

“I think it’s a great idea, the six-sided ring is a lot faster. Guys are coming off the ropes quicker because it’s a smaller ring. I think that is why TNA is action-packed because there’s not a lot of dead time. When you’re in there, you bounce off the ropes, one step, one-and-a-half steps, and you’re going to step into the opponent that’s going to end up throwing you.”
