FandangoWhy WWE is Using Two Fandango Dancers

According to The Wrestling Observer, the reason why WWE is using both Summer Rae and the other female dancer for Fandango is because the dancer seen on Raw this week, who's name is unknown at this time, cannot appear on Raw full-time.

WWE actually prefers the dancer we saw this week as she is an actual dancer, but she is also a student and is unable to go on the road with WWE full-time, so she will be replaced by NXT star Summer Rae on occasion.

Kurt Angle Heading to NY to Save Olympic Wrestling

TNA has issued the following press release:

Kurt Angle To Attend “The Rumble On The Rails” | USA vs. Iran vs. Russia | NYC May 15

Olympic Gold Medalist, multi-time World Heavyweight Champion and TNA IMPACT WRESTLING superstar Kurt Angle will attend “The Rumble On The Rails” – USA vs. IRAN vs. RUSSIA – on May 15 at Grand Central Terminal in New York City.

Three of the world’s top powers will come together in solidarity in this historic wrestling event, which is a showcase competition as part of World Wrestling Month, declared by the international wrestling federation (FILA).

Each year, the United States, Iran and Russia are among the world’s best wrestling nations. Since the IOC Executive Board recommendation that wrestling not be a core sport at the 2020 Olympic Games, these three nations have worked closely together to help support Olympic wrestling. Although their governments do not always agree, the wrestling leaders in these nations have a strong working relationship.

TNA’s Kurt Angle joins other celebrated USA Olympians attending the event including Dan Gable, Bruce Baumgartner, John Smith, Tom Brand and Rulon Gardner.

TNA’s Television Production team will be on hand to film Kurt’s involvement at the historic competition, which will air here on our website, ImpactWrestling.com
