Interesting Kurt Angle Interview, Piper On TMZ

Ricky Giri

Josh Stewart conducted a really interesting interview with TNA superstar Kurt Angle. Here are some excerpts:

On whether the MEM would serve the entire company of their own self interests:

â<80><9c>Itâ<80><99>s our job to elevate the young guys in the company,â<80> Angle said, complimenting the writing of Vince Russo along the way. â<80><9c>We want to be able to bring back the X Division the way it used to be. We want some of these young guys to become household names, kind of like most of the guys in the Main Event Mafia. So itâ<80><99>s kind of a team effort. Weâ<80><99>re setting ourselves up to go up against the young guys, and in the end, we want the young guys to come out winners.â<80>

On Angle’s promo referencing Jeff Jarrett’s wife, Jill:

â<80><9c>I said that I lost my world championship, I lost my gold medal and I lost my wife. But Iâ<80><99>m not the only one to lose their wife,â<80> Angle remembered. â<80><9c>Jeff didnâ<80><99>t know I was going to say that. When I got backstage, I was ready to fight. I figured he was going to come up to me and he was going to be really pissed. But I didnâ<80><99>t see Jeff. I didnâ<80><99>t know how he responded that night. I didnâ<80><99>t mean anything personally to Jill, God rest her soul. Itâ<80><99>s just that Jeff and I were going at it, and it seemed like the right thing to say at the right time to get some good heat. The fans, all of our wonderful, tremendous, great fans, sympathize with Jeff for everything heâ<80><99>s gone through. And to throw that in like that, it was like, â<80>~What an a**hole to say something like that.â<80><99> You know? So I actually thought Jeff would want to fight me. But he if wanted to fight me, heâ<80><99>s in for quite a hell of a fight. I was ready for him to jump me. So I was getting ready. Jeff and I donâ<80><99>t see eye to eye. A lot of stuff you see on TV is very transparent on how we feel about each other.â<80>
