WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has seen a lot of success as a pro wrestler throughout his career. HIs insane in-ring capability and solid character work propelled him to the top in no time. Angle also wants pro wrestlers to stop doing spot fests.
The Olympic Hero competed against the best of the best in the pro wrestling world. Being a veteran, Kurt Angle has a deep knowledge of pro wrestling and is aware of how the current landscape is.
While speaking to WhatCulture Wrestling, Kurt Angle talked about the current state of pro wrestling. Angle made it clear that he wished pro wrestlers would stop doing spot fests.
“I think people don’t buy into the fact that you have to be big to be dominating. There are a lot of athletes like AJ Styles that are undersized, that are doing tremendously well. I credit those guys. These guys today are so much better athletes than we were in our heyday. It’s because of the new training. The core training and the CrossFit training and everything that they have going on.
Technology has put them ahead of the game now. Rey Mysterio is still going, and he’s been so undersized. 140 lbs, and look what he’s done in the business. I like where the business is headed. I just wish they would pull it back a little bit. Slow down and take their time in the matches, rather than it being a spot fest.”
Kurt Angle also recently stated that he feels pro wrestling has lost its psychology. We’ll have to see whether Angle will end up making his way to WWE somewhere down the line or not.
