WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is regarded by many as one of the greatest technicians in the history of the wrestling business. During his illustrious career, The Olympic Gold Medalist has shared the ring with major names such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena and Shawn Michaels.
Despite this, Angle apparently believes that all of the above don’t hold a handle to Vince McMahon, who he considers to be the greatest wrestler of all time. It’s true, it’s DAMN true. During a recent interview on The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, Kurt Angle explained why he thinks Vince is the greatest in the business.
What you see on TV with Vince [McMahon] isn’t the real Vince. He likes to ham it up a bit and you know, that’s his thing. He’s the best wrestler in history. In other words, when he wrestles, everybody watches. He does these looks with his eyes when he’s going crazy and he’s mad.
Kurt Angle also added that he felt a bit disappointed that he wasn’t going to be used as an in-ring talent or have another title run in WWE following his return to the company in 2017.
Yes and no [I was happy with my last run]. If they would’ve started me out wrestling when I returned, I was ready. I was wrestling consistently. Even when I took a year off, I went on the indie circuit and kept myself busy, kept myself in shape because I knew WWE was gonna call on me and so yeah, I was a little disappointed. I thought that, you know, being a top talent like I was, I thought that I would get a possible title run and I didn’t come anywhere close to that.
Kurt Angle last wrestled Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 years after his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.
