TNA has already announced a huge match for this year's edition of Lockdown. Months after Bobby Roode turned on partner James Storm to win the World Heavyweight Championship, "Cowboy" will finally get Roode inside a steel cage where he will have nowhere to run.

The match-up is par for the course for the annual pay-per-view (PPV) event. Lockdown has a history of hosting important, historic matches. The second edition saw Team Sting takes on Jeff Jarrett's army in a wild eight-man brawl and three years ago Mick Foley stepped inside the Six Sides of Steel against the Stinger.

But none have been bigger than the main event of 2008's Lockdown: the champion Kurt Angle versus the challenger Samoa Joe. An instant classic, it saw the former WWE Superstar and the former Ring of Honor (ROH) champ collide in a title versus career match.

Years before Davey Richards was acting like a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter inside a wrestling ring, Angle and Joe blended the two sports together in amazing, seamless fashion. To help hype up April's PPV event, TNA has released the match in its entirety for free.

Check out the full match after the jump.
