He stated that Triple H told him that they already had enough talent on the roster, something that Vince McMahon would never say.

It appears that Bobby Lashley and Kurt Angle have come through for TNA.

Kurt Angle revealed an interesting detail about his contract during a recent interview with the MMA Hour. He stated that he was only required to work 40 dates a year for TNA. Since the company tapes approximately 50 episodes of Impact Wrestling each year, that means that the former world heavyweight champion is not actually required to work house shows. Angle could opt to do some of them if he wishes, however.
