TNA: Update on Kurt Angle vs Samoa Joe at Lockdown

– On top of what we have already reported about TNA wanting to take the promotion in a more series direction and the MMA style bout between Joe and Angle, one source says that the Rough Cut segments between BG James and Kip James were particularly inspired by the UFC hype interviews you get before fights. Less promo and more personal.

– Despite the Kurt Angle vs Samoa Joe match at Lockdown being booked like MMA, TNA have been careful not to call it a shoot, which would openly admit that every other bout is fake. The match itself will be stiff, but is obviously still worked.
