Two Legends and former WWE Superstars will be facing each other in the quadrilaterals of the independent fighting scene in the United States. It is the Latin Rey Mysterio and one of his good friends but also rivals, Kurt Angle.
Recall that Kurt Angle reached Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in 2006 , after a year earlier had made the decision to ask to be released from his contract with WWE to take time out of the fight, rest and Heal from their wounds and injuries. The same situation happened but last year 2015 with the masked Rey Mysterio.
After staying for 10 years as one of the most important figures in the development and growth of TNA – iMPACT! Wrestling, Kurt decided not to renew his contract with the company and his last fight was the past 31 of January of 2016 from the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, England before Bobby Lashley.

This is the first fight between these superstars after the big match they held at WWE WrestleMania 22 on Sunday, April 2, 2006 where Rey Mysterio defeated Randy Orton and also passed him to win the WWE Full Weight World Championship.
Also this will be the first encounter that will have “The Olympic Gold Medalist” after his departure from TNA (to take a break from the fight) and will be held next Sunday March 20, 2016 in the company UR Fight , which is also a Brand of clothing for MMA.
UR Fight will host a big event that includes MMA fights, grappling duels, boxing fights and wrestling. But also other wrestling legends will be facing, although it will be in an MMA cage. The exWWF Ken Shamrock will beat Dan Severn . For his part, Michael Bisping and Cchael Sonnen will have a meeting of Grapplin. And boxer Roy Jones Jr will face off against a fan who wants to get in the ring with him.
Connoisseurs, will this be the first and last fight on Kurt Angle’s independent scene before his return to WWE for WrestleMania 32 or in the not-too-distant future?
