WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has not returned to pro wrestling since his release, but that didn’t stop WWE from offering him a role. Angle also revealed the exorbitant amount of money he’d need to wrestle one more match. It seems he believes Nakamura deserves better in WWE.
Shinsuke Nakamura made a name for himself in NJPW, where he was the King Of Strong Style and touted as one of the best pro wrestlers in the world. He would eventually sign with WWE and has had a decent career in the company so far.
While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle talked about Shinsuke Nakamura’s passion for pro wrestling. Angle stated that it is crazy Nakamura has not been utilized more in WWE.
“I love his passion for the sport, love his character and think he’s hilarious. Every time he comes out, the fans go crazy. It’s crazy that the company hasn’t utilized him more, the way he should be utilized. Really surprised but I think it might be a little bit of the language barrier, that might be one of the reasons but he covers that with the way he portrays himself and the things he says. He doesn’t have to know English, he’s entertaining as it is. I’m not sure why they don’t utilize him the way he should be utilized.”
Even Shinsuke Nakamura might feel that WWE is wasting his talent as well.
Shinsuke Nakamura is currently the WWE Intercontinental Champion since winning it back in March. It remains to be seen whether Nakamura will ever be given a main event level push in the future as he stated he wants a full-fledged feud with Roman Reigns.
