Kurt Angle Unveils Main Event Mafia Members and Their Crucial Requirements

Unveiling Main Event Mafia

Kurt Angle's role in TNA's Main Event Mafia, a controversial heel faction, generated diverse opinions. Alongside wrestling legends like Sting, Kevin Nash, Booker T, Samoa Joe, and Scott Steiner, Angle sought to establish a dominant alliance. However, unexpected departures and surprising choices made the group's journey even more intriguing.

Tyson Tomko's Surprising Omission

In an episode of "The Kurt Angle Show," the six-time TNA World Champion confirmed that Tyson Tomko was initially slated to be part of the Mafia. However, his sudden departure from the company in 2008 left the plans in disarray. Angle expressed his surprise at Tomko's decision, speculating whether it was motivated by financial concerns or an interest in pursuing opportunities in Japan. Regardless, Angle acknowledged that Tomko had missed out on a promising position within the faction.

Sting's Unexpected Role

While Angle and Nash were no strangers to playing villains, Sting's inclusion as part of a heel stable came as a surprise to many. The intention behind this move was to create a significant attraction for the Main Event Mafia.

Angle emphasized the importance of Sting, referring to him as "The Icon." Shedding his trademark face paint in favor of black sunglasses was a departure from his usual persona, but Angle recognized that it was a necessary step for the success of the faction. Despite facing initial discomfort due to his lifelong babyface status, Sting embraced the role admirably.

The Disbandment and Short-Lived Reunion

After a commendable year-long run, the Main Event Mafia eventually disbanded towards the end of 2009. However, in 2013, there was an attempt to revive the faction with the addition of Magnus and Rampage Jackson. Unfortunately, this reunion was short-lived, lasting only four months.
