It was guessed/told by one of the insiders last october. I had my doubts at that time, but when angle was announced for HOF induction in january, i thought he will be the POB.

Considering 2K's royal treatment in regards to DLC movesets I wouldn't be surprised :D

Expected, but nice to have a confirmation. Over 10 years, over 10 years of waiting and now he's finally back in a WWE game!

Denkops said Kurt probably wasn't supposed to announce that yet, which is probably damn true (heh) considering the embargo lifts on July 5th.

Dat TNA render though lmao (I'm pretty sure it is at least).

 

Kurt's just used an image that someone else has used when discussing the rumour, hence the question mark.

 

So, he's deleted the original tweeet & tweeted it again with a different image. :lol:

Please god let him have a new reanimated Angle Slam and a new Ankle Lock that starts standing and transitions into the grapevine. Also please let him be able to pull the straps down for one of finishers.

Actually I think the thing i'm looking forward to the most is his entrance. It'll be nice to see his entrance newly animated instead of things that look nothing like it or the really old entrances from the PS2 era.

I think the ones currently in the game were animated for Randy Orton while the new Ankle Locks we got in the moves pack were for Ken Shamrock and American Alpha. But I agree we definitely need a new Angle Slam and ankle lock for Kurt Angle.

I'm giving his ECW theme to my career caw!

 

Wouldn't bank on him having his ECW theme, since Goldberg didn't have his WWE version of his theme song in 2k17 either. Would be cool to have it though, always had a soft spot for that theme.
