Kurt Angle started his professional wrestling career in WWE and the former world champion had a pretty successful run with the promotion where he won almost a dozen titles.
However, the Olympic Gold Medallist decided to leave the company in 2006 and he then joined TNA where the former WWE star spent the next decade of his wrestling career.
The former Raw General Manager recently compared his runs in both the companies during his recent interview with Wrestling Perspective podcast and he interestingly claimed that his TNA run was better:
“I actually had a better career there,” said Angle. “I hate to admit it because WWE was the big company, but I got better. I was only in the business six and a half years when I switched to TNA, and that was the prime of my career. I mean, my matches with Samoa Joe, Sting, AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, all those guys, and I had a really great career there, “said Kurt Angle, “As much as I love WWE, that was so much better.”
Though later in the interview, the former TNA champion said that there is a part of him that wishes that he stayed in WWE because the company had more viewers than TNA and a lot of people did not watch him in his prime.
