I told you back in May that Kurt Angle had been contacted about being a contestant on the upcoming season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." Now it looks like Angle is getting closer to appearing on the show.
The UK Sun, via The Orlando Sentinel's Between the Ropes blog, is reporting that the former WWE and current TNA wrestler and Olympic gold medalist is on the shortlist of potential contestants for the ninth season of the show, which begins airing September 21st.
The cast will be revealed on the August 17th edition of "Good Morning America," which also airs on ABC. If selected, Angle would be the second pro wrestling personality to appear on the show, with the first being Stacy Keibler who finished in third place during the show's second season.
