Kurt Angle spoke exclusively with Alex Barie’s WrestlingNewsWorld.com last week in an interview that has the entire Internet buzzing. Below are some of the highlights:
Admiration for Vince McMahon:
Kurt Angle: “I am very grateful what Vince [McMahon] did to me. He utilized me the right way. I believe if I would have went to WCW, it would have taken a heck of a lot longer to get to where I am now.”
Thoughts on the Chris Benoit tragedy:
Kurt Angle: “…it was such a tragedy that I was more confused to what happened and tried to figure out how a tragedy like that could happen especially since Chris [Benoit] was such a nice and caring guy.”
WWE lacking leadership today:
Kurt Angle: “…Undertaker, Triple H, Austin, The Rock… Those guys were such great leaders. I think that is what is lacking today. The Attitude Era there were so many great wrestlers.”
Who will carry the business in the future:
Kurt Angle: “I’m trying to think of young talent because when you are talking about the CM Punks, the Randy Ortons, and the AJ Styles… they are all in their thirties. That is not young talent… doesn’t mean they are not new talent. There are guys… I’ll give you a guy that will be a huge star. He’s only 25 right now, but he will be a huge star in the next three or four years, whether it be in TNA or somewhere else and that’s Magnus.”
