WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle remains one of the most technically-gifted pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He had arguably the best rookie year in WWE history as he won the WWE Championship within a year and competed at the highest level for many years after that.
Angle would leave WWE in 2006 and made his way to TNA Wrestling, where he spent a decade in the company, surpassing the seven years he stayed in WWE. He also had instant classics in TNA, including matches against the likes of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuiness and many more.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has the final say in anything and everything that goes on in the company, for better or worse. Vince McMahon also sabotaged Jon Moxley’s matches.
Kurt Angle recently spoke on the Talk Is Jericho podcast, where he stated that he was not surprised Vince McMahon fired him from his WWE producer role because he was bad at it.
“I took the job as a producer/agent. I did it for a year, I wasn’t very good at it. The thing is, I don’t like computers and you have to use a damn computer all the time. Vince is like, ‘Kurt, open up your computer.’ I don’t even know how to do this thing. I was good at giving the guys ideas for the matches but I wasn’t really a quality producer. So when the pandemic hit I was one of the first ones let go and I don’t blame Vince for that.”
