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 made him a huge star very quickly. He also gave some advice to Jeff Hardy in the past.
The Olympic Hero competed against the best of the best in the pro wrestling world. This also includes his time in TNA, where he has faced off against Jeff Hardy as well.
While speaking on “The Kurt Angle Show on AdFreeShows.com,” Kurt Angle revealed that he told Jeff Hardy to tone down his ring style during his run in TNA.
”I told him he needs to tone it down. I told him that at house shows and some of the TVs, don’t use all your stuff. Save it for the Pay-Per-Views and the big TVs, the important TVs, because you only have one body, and if you bang it up too much, you’re not going to be able to perform anymore.
If you want to have a nice long career, you need to save yourself and make sure you only do the spots that you do in the most important matches, the Pay-Per-View matches and the important TV matches. The other stuff, you can just wrestle and have fun, and participate with the fans and include them in the match. Just enjoy yourself without doing anything crazy. Jeff always did crazy stuff. He never let his fans down even at house shows. He was doing the Swanton from the top rope. He was diving over the top rope outside of the ring. He always put his body in jeopardy no matter what kind of show it was.”
Of course, you know what? I didn’t tone it down either.”
Kurt Angle also recently stated that he feels pro wrestling has lost its psychology. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Kurt Angle now.
