Brendan Dassey's coming home to a hero's welcome -- from his parents, anyway -- and a room filled with reminders of how famous he's become while incarcerated for more than 10 years.

Kurt Angle has left Tna after nearly ten years with the promotion, and now the next step in his career has been announced. Angle will take on former adversary Rey Mysterio at Ur Fight’s March 20th event.
Ur Fight is a fledgling hybrid promotion mixing various forms of combat sports. Angle versus Mysterio (hyped as “one final match” between the two) is one quarter of a quadruple main event on the March show, to be held at Phoenix, Arizona’s Celebrity Theater.
