Original Incredible Hulk Lou Ferrigno and TNA wrestler Kurt Angle are both possible contenders on Dancing with the Stars 9.
Ferrigno has yet to sign a contract, but is talking about himself as if he’s on the show, perhaps as a way to convince the producers that it’s a good idea to cast him, because look how much press he can get. “I had a good meeting with the producers for Dancing With the Stars, it was really positive, and they loved the idea of having me on the show,” Ferrigno told Life & Style. “I’ve never done that type of dancing before, so I know that I’ll have to train hard. I’m a glutton for punishment, so I’ll give it my best shot.”
Meanwhile, The Sun reported that Kurt Angle “has been shortlisted for the new” season, citing the TNA wrestler’s manager, who seems to be doing the same sort of talking-up of his client. “Its pretty simple, Kurt enjoys dancing and believe it or not he has the talent to do it,” Dave Hawk told the paper. “Just as Kurt has lightning speed, smooth, controlled and brilliant moves in pro-wrestling, this man can also dance. … All I can say is if Kurt takes that drive, determination and attitude of wanting to be the best at wherever he does, I believe with his athletic ability and charisma, he will be a very strong contender on this program.”
