If you had told members of the WWE Universe five years ago some of the names that would be competing under the watchful eye of Vince McMahon, then they would have likely laughed right in your face. Superstars such as Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode were never expected to wrestle in WWE. Two of the biggest shocks in recent years have been the acquisitions of Kurt Angle and AJ Styles.
Many of us who have been fans of WWE for years had pretty much come to terms with the fact that Angle would never be back in the company that made him famous. Then last year he was inducted into the Hall of Fame, became Raw General Manager, and has even wrestled a couple of matches since. Then you have AJ Styles. Two years ago the former New Japan and TNA guy made his debut for Mr. McMahon and today he is a two time WWE Champion and one of the company's most valuable assets.
The main reason that fans believed neither Angle nor Styles would be WWE Superstars in the present day is because of their history with TNA, now Impact Wrestling of course. The two of them were integral to the promotion's most successful period and even had some pretty memorable matches against one another. Well it seems that we may get to relive some of those moments and matches in WWE, sort of.
Kurt Angle posted a photo of himself on Instagram along with The Phenomenal One and also Shane McMahon sat on the set of WWE Network show Table For Three. Apparently the three of them will be on an upcoming episode of the show together and according to the Raw GM they talk about their matches together, their families, as well as 'unheard stories and even TNA wrestling'.
All three men have history with one another in WWE dating all the way back to Angle and Shane O Mac's brutal street fight at King of the Ring in 2001. The Table For Three series can be a little hit and miss, a recent episode involving all three members of The Shield made The Hounds of Justice seem like they don't know each other at all. This one should be good though and it will be interesting to hear TNA's past discussed on WWE television.
