Nine Times The King As Angle Becomes A Double Champion

I haven't really paid much attention to recent developments within the wacky world of professional wrestling this past week due to the Chris Benoit saga. As such, I have only just found out that my favourite prowrestler Kurt Angle defeated his old rival Brock Lesnar in just over ten minutes during the main event of the first Inoki Genome Federation show that was held at the Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan on June 29. Angle made Lesnar submit to his trademark Ankle-lock to capture the IGF version of the International Wrestling Grand Prix Heavyweight Championship.
The victory makes Angle a nine-time World Champion and a reigning double Heavyweight Champion. It also Angle's third Heavyweight Title reign in the past two months. During his near-nine-year career, Angle has held SIX different versions of the World Heavyweight Championship (WWE Undisputed, WWE World, WCW, TNA, NWA and IGF/IWGP) and I don't need to remind readers of his accomplishments at amateur level.
