WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has done it all as far as being pro wrestler is concerned. He was one of the best in-ring competitors to have ever competed inside the ring. Kurt Angle also commented on the current state of the pro wrestling industry.

He has squared off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer and accomplished a lot. He has a vast knowledge of pro wrestling, which is why his opinion matters a lot to many.

While speaking with SHAK Wrestling, Kurt Angle talked about the current state of the pro wrestling industry. The WWE Hall Of Famer stated that he feels pro wrestling has lost its psychology due to its reliance on spot fests.

“It’s receded because a lot of these athletes now just do a bunch of spots. Nothing really makes sense. It’s more of a spot fest. They go out there and do these impressive things, a couple flips over the top rope onto the floor, you know? Things that don’t tell a story, you know? Psychology is the most important thing in wrestling and you want to have great psychology and a good storyline. A good story is babyface versus heel.


The babyface shines on the heel, the heel sells, the heel cheats, gets the babyface face down, gets heat on the heel, or the heel gets heat on the babyface. The babyface makes a big comeback, you have the false finishes, and then the finish. So if you have that certain psychology in wrestling, you’re going to get it right every time as long as you do that. But a lot of these matches now, there’s no baby and no heel. It’s just two athletes going at it and I think that’s where we lost a little bit of our psychology.”

Angle was released from his role as WWE producer back in 2020 as part of the COVID-19 budget cuts. Angle has been keeping himself in great shape and is enjoying his life after retirement since then.
