While he is no longer wrestling for TNA, Kurt Angle is not done in the ring. The former world heavyweight champion has signed on to wrestle Rey Mysterio at a show in Phoenix, Arizona on March 20. Interestingly enough, former WWE stars Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn are booked to do an MMA fight that night as well. In addition to those two genres, there will also be a boxing match featuring Roy Jones Jr fighting a fan.

Since he is still one of the most popular wrestlers in the entire world, TNA made a good business decision this week when they attempted to sign Rey Mysterio to a contract. Management pitched to him that he would be built up as the big star that he is. They also informed him that he would have freedom to work in other promotions as well.

Once he is no longer contractually obligated to WWE, the belief is that Rey Mysterio will continue his career as an in ring performer. While TNA has yet to be removed as a potential destination, the belief is that he will be venturing over to Lucha Underground because he wants to be part of the movement. Along with the already signed and rejuvenated Alberto Del Rio, Mysterio could help the promotion gain more exposure nationwide.
