Video: Kurt Angle on how TNA can compete with WWE

What's Kurt Angle's opinion on how TNA can compete with and favorably compare to WWE? By taking Impact Wrestling on the road, of course.

In the world of professional wrestling you have WWE and then you have everyone else. TNA is the next closest competitor to Vince McMahon's empire but Dixie Carter and company have struggled to catch fire in an increasingly burnt out marketplace. There are steps that have been taken to rectify that, however, and one of them has been to take the promotion's weekly television program on Spike TV, Impact Wrestling, on the road full time.

Kurt Angle, a former WWE champion and current TNA mainstay, believes that's the first step in the process to putting the company he's with now on the same ground as the company he was with before.

"Going on the road is an amazing move for Impact Wrestling. It's now time for us to take the next step and go city to city, have our televisions on the road, going around the country, and hopefully around the world, god willing, in the future. But it's baby steps and this is the next step we had to take. In order for the company to grow and be a highly successful company and to compare to WWE, we have to go on the road. And this is a great move for us."

Anyone think it will ever happen? Is TNA going to one day be as big as WWE?
