Kurt Angle was recently a part of Cody Rhodes’ list that he posted on Twitter of wrestlers he plans on facing once he is contractually able to compete again (as he mentions below when he typed “after 8/19”). Names on Rhodes’ list include Angle, Adam Cole, The Young Bucks and more. You can view that list below.

Northeast Wrestling’s “Wrestling Under the Stars” event also includes another “first time ever” match between Jushin “Thunder” Liger and Jeff Hardy. Mike Bennett, Maria and Jerry Lawler are also advertised for the show. You can buy tickets for this event or learn more about it by visiting northeastwrestling.com.
Mark’s reaction: Knowing that you’ll get to see Angle vs. Rhodes and Liger vs. Hardy for the first time ever is worth the price of admission alone, and tickets aren’t too expensive either. I’m definitely going to try and go to this show. If I can’t though I’m hoping I can find it online afterwards and watch it.
I love Cody’s list of wrestlers he wants to face off with. All could be great matches and it would be cool just to see him standing in the ring with some of these guys. I’m particularly looking forward to a potential match between him and Roderick Strong.
