Angle Headed To Japan?, SD!, RAW, More News

Ryan Clark

Kurt Angle did an interview in Tokyo Sports, and said it would be possible for him to wrestle for IGF on 9/8 in Japan, and then fly back to work the 9/9 TNA No Surrender PPV. Angle said it was up to Dixie Carter and Antonio Inoki to work a deal, but he’d be glad to it. Angle also said he’d like to work a match with Josh Barnett, and would want it to be under MMA rules (when is this guy going to stop the MMA chatter?). He also suggested a match against Yugi Nagata to determine the undisputed IWGP champion.

Based on Nielsen Media’s fast national numbers, last night’s Smackdown scored a 2.6 rating.

Here are some recent WWE attendance figures:

– 8/17 Raw in Evansville, IN drew 4,500 fans and a $150,000 live gate.

– 8/18 Smackdown in Albany, GA drew 3,000 fans and a $110,000 gate.
