Kurt Angle took a few shots at John Cena’s new movie, “Legendary” on Twitter earlier today.

In his first post he compared his new movie, “Beyond the Mat” to Cena’s flick:

“I heard that "beyond the mat" comes out in jan. Legendary comes out next month.The difference is realism. Legendary is not true to real ...”

Ouch, 1-0 Angle.

Angle followed up that tweet with this:

“Wrestling. "Beyond the mat". It has me, ken shamrock- all world class athletes who know how to succeed. This movie will blow away any w ...”

Make that 2-0 Angle.


“But I heard Cena did a great job in "Legendary". Thanks for pushing the sport of amateur wrestling john. It's great 4 the sport”

It’s a clean sweep, 3-0 Angle.

“Beyond the Mat” will debut in early 2011. Angle plays a high school wrestling coach in the movie. Cena plays the older brother of a high school student and tries to train him after being released from jail.

According to IMDB, Angle has a couple of movies coming in 2010 and 2011. They don’t seem to be anything big and two of the movies, “River of Darkness” and “Death from Above,” also star Kevin Nash.

As you may have seen on Raw this past week, “Legendary” hits theaters next month. The trailer was shown, but here it is in case you missed it.
