Kurt Otto, founder of the IFL, recently blasted Kurt Angle in an interview saying that the pro wrestler who has been hinting at a switch to MMA, got cold feet after watching fights at ringside of an IFL show. Angle had been in talks with Otto about joining the promotion and was likely to be matched up with Ken Shamrock before deciding against it after the watching the sport live.
“He got scared and wanted to go back into pro wrestling,” said Shamrock. “That’s okay, Kurt, I still respect you for what you did in the Olympics, but this is MMA. You don’t come in here, say you’re gonna do something, and then you don’t.”
