Bobby Lashley is one of the true veterans in WWE right now. He is a former 2-time WWE Champion and continues to be a highlight of WWE television. He has competed against many top stars, including even Kurt Angle. In fact, he responded to Angle’s recent comments as well.
Kurt Angle won the TNA World Championship from Bobby Lashley during a tour of the United Kingdom This was back in 2015 and Angle recently claimed that the match saved his career.
While speaking with CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri, Lashley was asked about Angle’s comments. It was evident that Bobby Lashley took them as a massive compliment.
“Damn, that is awesome, and a huge compliment. Kurt was the one that kind of opened the doors and got me into professional wrestling from the beginning. So I’ve always had a huge amount of respect and admiration for Kurt. So the fact that he said that, it really is a huge deal for me. But at the same time, it’s Kurt Angle, man. I believe he’s one of the best in this business, and the fact that I was able to give him that mindset, to be able to train and wanna keep going, that is a huge compliment and a huge blessing and a huge amount of respect to me.”
Kurt Angle would wrestle sporadically for the next four years until retiring following a loss to Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35. He will forever be grateful to Bobby Lashley and that’s all that matters.
