When Kurt Angle jumped from WWE to TNA in 2006, the landscape of the pro wrestling business was changed forever. He was able to feud with TNA Originals like AJ Styles and Samoa Joe, which they had runs in WWE several years later. Now Angle reveals that a few TNA stars should’ve been in WWE.

While speaking on the newest episode of his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, Angle stated that he believes Abyss could’ve had a successful run in WWE as a wrestler. He also thinks that Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian could have been successful in the company as well.

“Oh, that’s hard to pick one. I will say Abyss, he did go to WWE as a producer, but he never wrestled for WWE. I thought he should have been up there,” he said. “Also, I’d say Christopher Daniels and Kazarian. Those two guys were not only incredible singles wrestlers, they were incredible tag wrestlers. They had it all and those guys were incredible. I actually expected them to end up in WWE and sadly they didn’t, but they’re in AEW now, so that’s just about as good.”

Christopher Daniels was a WWF enhancement talent, and Frankie Kazarian had a brief run with WWE back in 2005 and appeared on WWE Velocity. Meanwhile, Abyss never made it to WWE, but his “brother,” Joseph Parks, did help AJ Styles create the PISS system.


If Daniels, Kazarian, and Abyss had successful runs in WWE, they would’ve been praised heavily like TNA Original AJ Styles, who went on to be a Grand Slam Champion within the company. Of course, we may never know since they are in AEW currently.
