Despite the fact that TNA iMPACT! Wrestling announced that they are moving the five-on-five Main Event Mafia vs. Aces & 8's match until the August 22nd edition of iMPACT! Wrestling on Spike TV, as opposed to the live Hardcore Justice edition of iMPACT! Wrestling this week, Kurt Angle is not expected to be involved in the match.

Angle is still in rehab at this point, and according to sources, is not expected back in TNA anytime in the near future.
