The beginning of a new federation… and the return of a familiar face to the world of wrestling. The NWA-TNA has officially and has signed a roster full of huge superstars. The Rock, Steve Austin, Chris Jericho and many other superstars have signed NWA-TNA contracts but everyone is looking forward to the long-awaited return of the multi-time world Champion Kurt Angle. After 9 months on the sidelines, the former 2-time WEF World Champion, WEF Undisputed Champion and 2-time SKE Champion has returned to the ring for 1 last shot at the big time. His career was left in shatters after being defeated inside the elimination chamber at the World Of Wrestling’s last pay-per-view, No Way Out. Kurt Angle suffered a horrific neck injury that left him in dire need of operation. Kurt Angle has returned and seeks vengeance on all that stand before him. There’s only 1 thing Kurt Angle wants… and that’s to get back to the top of the wrestling business. Kurt wants gold back around his waist… and maybe he can get that in NWA-TNA? His first opponents are Stone Cold Steve Austin and Christian in some kind of gimmick match… there’s only 1 thing Kurt is intent on and that’s outright victory. But can he achieve that at NWA-TNA’s first event Xplosion? Can Kurt get back to the top of this business and dominate once again?


The scene opens and the camera is focussed on a TV… not a big TV but size doesn’t matter in this case. At first, all we can hear is the sound of rewinding a tape… then, the screen pans out and we can see the man that’s rewinding the tape. It’s Kurt Angle… and my god, he looks focussed and serious. Kurt hasn’t taken his eyes off the screen and is furiously bashing at the remote. He stops the tape and we hear but can’t see what’s actually on the television.

{Match commentary} JIM ROSS: MY GOD! RHYNO JUST WENT FOR A SPINEBUSTER AND DROPPED ANGLE ON HIS HEAD! ANGLE IS BUSTED OPEN AND HE’S NOT MOVING… HE’S NOT MOVING KING!

KING: I THINK ANGLE’S IN HUGE TROUBLE HERE… HE MUST BE KNOCKED OUT!

Kurt fast-forwards and after about 10 seconds, he frustratedly punches the play button again…

JIM ROSS: I THINK THIS MIGHT BE THE END FOR KURT ANGLE… HE HASN’T MOVED FOR OVER 5 MINUTES, THE EMT’S ARE ALREADY STRAPPING HIM INTO A NECK BRACE…

KING: IT’S NOT LOOKING GOOD KING, RHYNO TOOK HIM OUT BIG-STYLE… I DON’T THINK I’D BE MOVING IF I GOT DROPPED ON MY HEAD LIKE THAT!

JIM ROSS: CERTAINLY NOT… I HOPE IT’S JUST A CONCUSSION KING, REALLY I DO… BUT I DON’T KNOW, SOMETHING SEEMS WRONG.

KING: I’VE GOT A FEELING THAT SOMETHING MORE SERIOUS HAS HAPPENED TO KURT ANGLE…

JIM ROSS: AND TO THINK THAT KURT ANGLE COULD HAVE BEEN WORLD CHAMPION AND THAT SONUVABITCH RHYNO TOOK HIM OUT AND RETAINED HIS TITLE… IT’S NOT RIGHT DAMMIT, IT’S NOT RIGHT!

Kurt switches the screen off… and turns to look at the camera. Kurt puts his heads in his hands, he looks up after 2 seconds and shakes his head, before speaking.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] 9 months… 9… long… months…

Kurt takes a deep intake of breath before continuing, he’s clearly getting emotional and choked up about the injury and being sidelined for so long.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] For the past 9 months, I’ve been stuck at home… not being able to do anything that I want to. I’ve been though surgery on my neck… I’ve been stuck in a wheelchair for 3 months… for 3 months, I wasn’t even able to walk far enough to leave the house. I’ve been through operation, rehabilitation… every bit of torment and pain that could have been thrown at me. And now, I’m back… I’m feeling great… In fact, I’m feeling better than ever… and you know what… I can’t wait to get off my god damn butt and get in the ring again!

Kurt pauses, he’s clearly got himself worked up by what he’s saying and he gives himself a moment to calm his voice back down again.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] All I have been thinking about for the last 9 months is getting back in the ring. Even when the doctors were sticking knives into my neck and telling me that I might not ever be able to walk, let alone wrestle again… I knew that I was coming back. I knew that no matter what… I was going to get better and I was going to come back to this business and pick up where I left off.

Kurt’s face seems to loosen up a little, the deathly serious angry face has gone… and now, he still seems to be taking what he’s saying seriously but his harsh glare has gone.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] And that’s all that’s been on my mind for the last 9 months… unfinished business. In World Of Wrestling, I only scraped the tip of the iceberg… I got as close to being the best in the business as I could… and then, Rhyno took it all away from me. I proved every single night out that I went out to the ring… that I was the single-best wrestler in this industry and there wasn’t a damn person who could say otherwise. But the fact of the matter was, I didn’t finish what I started and that’s exactly what I’ve come back to do.

Kurt picks up his remote and presses the eject button, the video comes out and Kurt takes it out… he holds it up to the camera as if it is some kind of trophy.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] I’m sick to death of hearing the same old things… why are you going to risk your life again? Did the neck surgery not teach you a lesson? Are you mad Kurt? So what! I had neck surgery… I could have died… big freakin’ deal! They might be right… my career should be over… but it’s not! It’s not over! Not by a long way…

Kurt tosses the video into the bin next to him… he seems to have some satisfaction by doing it, before his face sobers up again as he looks back to the screen.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] This isn’t about the past… This is about the future! There’s 1 reason I came back… and 1 reason only. And that’s to prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that your Olympic Hero is the best wrestler in this business.

Kurt Angle begins to grin smugly at the camera… his ego is growing as he speaks.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] And that’s right, I am a hero! There’s not many people who could have gone through what I’ve been through… and still had the desire, the commitment, the drive to come back and wrestle in front of millions of people once again. But don’t think I’m doing this for entertainment… I’m doing this for me. I need to prove to myself that I’ve still got it in me… I’ve got to prove that Kurt Angle is the best wrestler to ever step foot in a wrestling arena and right now, that’s all that matters.

Kurt stops looking at the camera, he reaches down to the table and he picks up a piece of paper… Kurt looks at it for a few seconds and then, looks up… Kurt shows the piece of paper to the camera as he speaks again…

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] This is my new NWA:TNA contract… this pieces of paper states that I’m an official wrestler in NWA-TNA.

Kurt then puts the 1 piece of paper down and picks up another one.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] And this letter says that I’m medically cleared to wrestle… Oh it’s true, it’s true. Your Olympic Hero is back in business… and I’m gonna whup some freakin’ butt.

Kurt picks up a glass and takes a drink… in the glass, we can see that it’s full of milk.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] You know, I love my milk… I won’t hide that fact. It’s good for me and as an athlete, I have to look after myself.

Kurt puts the glass of milk down and looks back at the camera.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] However, my first match against Stone Cold Steve Austin and Christian isn’t about proving that milk is the best drink. Everybody already knows that. No… it’s about winning!

Kurt seems intent on making sure that everybody knows that he intends on proving he’s the best.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] I didn’t come back to entertain the masses… I didn’t come back to compete in stupid matches… I came back to finish where I left off. I came back to beat every single wrestler that’s put in my way… it doesn’t matter how I do it, as long as I get the victory. I will win this Sunday and I will prove I’m the best wrestler in the NWA-TNA.

Kurt laughs for a second, something has obviously amused him… he then begins to speak again.

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] Stone Cold Steve Austin. The Texas Rattlesnake. The Toughest Sonuvabitch in the NWA-TNA. You know Austin, you make me laugh… See, you’ve done everything that I did. You’re a multi-time World Champion… you’ve wrestled and beaten the best in the business… you’ve had the same neck surgery as I had Steve. But Steve, don’t think you’re the same as me… you’re not! You see, you’ve achieved a lot but it took you a heck of a long time to do it. I’ve only been on this scene for a couple of years and I’ve done everything you’ve done and more… And whilst I’ve got plenty of years left in me, your career is practically over. Austin, you’re a has-been… and this Sunday, I’m gonna’ prove it.

Kurt takes a break and looks down, he obviously realises that he has another opponent and that is his former-friend Christian…

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] Christian. We’ve known each other for a long time and I’d like to think that we’re friends… However, there are no friends in the spirit of competition. When I step into the ring and it doesn’t matter who it is, I have only 1 thing on my mind and that’s outright victory. Christian, friends or no friends, I’m going to beat you this Monday night…

Kurt stares deeper into the camera…

[ ' Olympic Hero ' Kurt Angle ] It doesn’t matter who gets pinned… or who taps out… either Stone Cold Steve Austin or Christian will be drinking milk this Monday night.

It’s true, it’s damn true!
