Kurt Angle on His Challenge to Conor McGregor, McGregor vs Ziggler, More

Former TNA and WWE star Kurt Angle was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated. You can check out the highlights here:

On his challenge to UFC champion Conor McGregor:

“I’d like to challenge Conor. Take five bumps with me in the ring. Just five bumps. When I did that for the first time, I took three and said, ‘F— this, I’m quitting.’ I quit for a couple days and my manager talked me into going back. I know how Dana White and Conor continue to bash the business, but I challenge either of them to get in the ring with me and take five bumps. Once they do, they’ll realize how tough it is–and that’s not even a fraction of what it takes to be a pro wrestler.”

On how McGregor would fare against Dolph Ziggler:

“Dolph Ziggler was a great amateur wrestler. If he trained for six months, Dolph could give Conor a good run for his money.”

On the toughness of John Cena:

“John Cena would tap in twenty seconds in the Octagon, but he is still the biggest badass to ever walk the face of the earth. This kid has been on top for thirteen years. No one has ever done that. He’s now in his fourteenth year on top. I couldn’t do it. Hulk Hogan didn’t do that, Stone Cold had four or five years tops, and it was the same with The Rock before he went to Hollywood. From a toughness standpoint, there is nobody tougher than John Cena. I would love to see Conor McGregor try to be on top of WWE for thirteen years. He wouldn’t make it.”
