Sting, Angle, Scott Steiner, Kevin Nash, and Booker T together made the Main Event Mafia. Angle and Stinger engaged in a feud over the leadership of MEM. Sting defeated Angle and became the leader. However, they quickly overthrew him a few weeks later to replace him with Samoa Joe.

Angle and Stinger had tons of matches in TNA, but their Empty Arena Match in 2009 is one contest that really excites us even today. It can even be compared to being as good as The Rock vs Mankind in 1999 during the Superbowl halftime.
