Kurt Angle and the Edge have a lengthy history together, having had a memorable feud on WWE SmackDown in the summer of 2002. Edge’s first rivalry after moving to the Friday night show cemented his reputation as one of the brand’s most promising acts. The two had several heated battles, most notably the hair vs. hair match on Judgment Day 2002, which the RAW Superstar won.
Kurt Angle recently pointed out a couple of flaws in his former rival and inactive RAW Superstar Edge. He discussed competing against Edge in an interview with Bill Apter. When asked about his weaknesses, Angle remarked that the Rated R Superstar often tries to stop his matches early rather than letting them play out slowly, which might help him in the long run.
Oh my gosh, I don’t know if he has a weakness. You know, I think for him, sometimes he gets into trying to put the match away early on and I think if he held off and stayed there for the long haul, I think it would serve him better.
Furthermore, Angle stated that Edge must control his emotions since it will neither benefit his on-screen role or him in real life. “The temper, he needs to lose that. That’s something that does not help you in professional wrestling and definitely doesn’t help you as a character or a person,” added Kurt Angle.
Kurt Angle also discussed the famous “You suck” chants that he receives whenever he goes down a WWE ring. Angle said that Edge ranted the chant during their rivalry. The former WWE Champion said that it soon became a fan favorite, as fans continued to chant it even after he turned babyface.
It started off when I was a heel and Edge was the reason why it happened. They (fans) were chanting ‘Angle’ during my music, and at one point, Edge got onto the microphone and was like these fans shouldn’t be chanting ‘Angle,’ they should be chanting ‘You suck.’ It carried on, it caught on from there and even when I turned babyface, the fans liked to cheer it, so it became a part of me.
The Rated-R Superstar is presently out of action, having last competed at WWE Extreme Rules 2022, where he was beaten in an I Quit match by Finn Balor. Let’s wait and see how Edge reacts to this. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
