Kurt Angle featured in Cover Story September issue of Fitness RX Magazine

By : WrestlingDotCom News Posted on

Current TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle said in a cover story interview in the September issue of Fitness RX Magazine that he hopes he doesn’t have to choose between TNA and working movies full time. The article focused on his recent training for an MMA role in “The Warrior” which is scheduled for an early 2010 release. http://kona.kontera.com/javascript/lib/imgs/grey_loader.gif

Angle said he grew out both his hair and his facial hair for the role and dropped 25 pounds from his normal pro wrestling weight. Angle said he went through intense MMA training by “doing several hours” of sparring per day during film production to prepare for the role, which was to be an authentic MMA fighter.

During the movie shoot, Angle had two separate fight scenes. His first scene was a one-round MMA fight that he said took eight hours to film. He said the second fight scene was a three-round bout that he said took “the better part of two days” to film. Angle credited the pre-fight training for allowing him to complete the filming because of how much effort was required.

Angle also has another movie slated for release in 2010, “Dead of Night.” He said he has a passion for making movies and thanked TNA president Dixie Carter for allowing him to mix wrestling with movies.

Angle said he eventually wants to own his movie production company and call the shots on what types of movies to produce and film. He said he enjoys doing “big budget” films and smaller, independent films, such as the “End Game” independent film he made with Jenna Morasca. He was asked about why he didn’t pursue a profession as a legit MMA fighter. Angle said he had the choice between WWE and UFC when he finished the Olympics in 1996, but he chose WWE since UFC didn’t seem to be going anywhere at the time.

Angle said his body is too physically damaged and he’s too old to become a competitive MMA fighter. He thanked UFC president Dana White for always “being good to me.”
