Matt Morgan Speaks on Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe is Not Happy

Nick Paglino

The UK Sun recently conducted an interview with TNA star Matt Morgan, where he discusses a number of topics including his match against Kurt Angle at Bound For Glory. Below is a highlight from the interview:

On the subject of Angle raising his hand at the end of the match, Morgan said: "It felt like a passing of the torch, in some ways. Sometimes it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose. I genuinely wasn’t expecting him to do that. I was lying in the corner and he came over to me. I was like "are you f***ing kidding me?" and he said "I’m dead serious." He said to me after the match "no-one in my career has pushed me to the limit like this, ever." I earned the respect of the best wrestler in the entire universe. I feel great."

It was reported a couple weeks ago that Samoa Joe was apparently upset with TNA management because they did not use a catering business at Bound For Glory that one of his friends ran. The Wrestling Observer is now reporting that Samoa Joe is apparently upset that the internet "falsely" reported this news and he has personally responded to the reports by saying the following on his official Twitter page:

"I often wonder how Wrestling news sites can call their posts "news" when they cannot cite sources or provide proof of what they say occured? I’m not targeting anyone in particular. I’m just saying in normal journalistic circles sources and evidence are key aspects of journalism. I mean wrestling is a highly political game so you have to wonder what are these sources agendas? I’m just saying I know a few sites follow me I am interested in their take and their accountability policies. BTW I’m not a "sheet hater." They bolster interest and discussion in the industry & I feel they have become a integral part of wrestling media. I get trashed & scrutinized everyday which is fine – IT’S PART OF MY JOB, but when people fabricate what I say about others, thats wank. I don’t want sheets to disappear. I just am calling for you to UP YOUR GAME, be better than what you are currently, Truth = Relevance."
