Yesterday we asked if you thought WWE going with Kurt Angle to replace Roman Reigns at WWE TLC was the right decision, and after just over 500 comments here's what you guys thought. Well, it was pretty much everything from "Yeah, duh" to "Horrible move by WWE" and everything between.
People who gave it a thumbs up, thought it was a big star replacing a big star and at least a surprising pick. Those who were giving it thumbs down didn't think he should return at a "B" PPV, could have a lot of ring rust, and there was basically no proper build-up for his return after 11 years. Others looked at it from a business perspective and said WWE really didn't have much time and they had to make some kind of move to replace one of the bigger attractions on the show.
Thanks to everyone who responded, here are some of the top comments.
"Losing a big name in Roman Reigns and replacing with a big name in Kurt Angle seems like a good enough replacement. Now, personally, when I heard the news, I wasn't overly excited, but I was more like 'What the hell.' It feels random and doesn't excite you as much as Angle's return to the ring should. Now, we have to consider that is it that very same company who was against Daniel Bryan returning to action who is having a 48 years old man come back to action after a long time of inactivity in one of the most dangerous type of match we have, but, oh well."
"I think Brock Lesnar would've been a better fit. That way you don't blow the big build-up to Kurt's wrestling return and you still get a massive name on the card. That said, I'm curious to see how they fit that into a storyline now that the GM is returning to wrestle some of his own 'employees.'"
"Obviously, Kurt was going to wrestle in the WWE again. It was only a matter of time. It would have been nice if there was some semblance of a storyline leading up to it, but the nature of this business is what it is and things have to change on the fly sometimes."
"Quite surprised it wasn't Cena. They could have used the opportunity to allow Cena to talk smack about having to come back again because Roman couldn't cut it, leading to another match."
"I want to see him in a red, white, and blue tactical vest."
