Kurt Angle vs. Wes Brisco

Kurt Angle's quest to take down the Aces & Eights takes a turn for the personal when he faces off against former mentee Wes Briscoe in a steel cage.

The Road to Lockdown

There's not much that Angle hasn't accomplished in the world of wrestling. Gold medals, championships in the largest pro wrestling companies worldwide...so when he set aside his pursuit of individual glory to defend TNA, a company he feels an allegiance to, and to mentor the future of the business in legacies like Garett Bischoff and Wes Brisco, it was a big decision.

While Angle and his allies have been able to earn meaningful victories over Aces & Eights, including when he infiltrated their clubhouse and unmasked one of their leaders in D-Lo Brown, there have been setbacks. One that has to sting in particular was the revelation that Bischoff and Brisco were secretly members of the gang, a fact that was revealed when they beat down Angle on Impact in January.

Brisco was first seen on Impact following the Olympic gold medalist around backstage, seeking to pick his brain and learn everything he could from the legend. It was Angle who went to bat for Gerald Brisco's son, earning him the Gut Check match that enabled him to join the TNA roster.

Now, the young man seeks to make his name by taking out the veteran once and for all. And it will take place in the same brutal environment where Brisco turned on his mentor - a steel cage.

What's at Stake?

A victory here will mean momentum for either Team TNA or Aces & Eights headed into their Lethal Lockdown match later. But for the men in the cage, it's bigger than that. Angle's out to prove that he's every bit the force he still believes himself to be, and to teach the upstart that he crossed the wrong man. Brisco can start his own legend by taking out a hero under the biggest spotlight he's worked under.

Will the gang get involved, or leave one of their youngest members to fend for himself? There are plenty of ways to win a steel cage match, but they all require some brutality. Who will be able to best channel his aggression and earn the victory?
