Kurt Angle Discusses His WWE Role, Transition Into Pro-Wrestling, More

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently did an interview with the Chicago Tribune where he spoke about a wide range of topics. Here are the highlights: 

His WWE backstage role: 

“I help structure matches that the talents have. It’s just giving my feedback and evaluating what the wrestlers do,” Angle said. “The most important thing is once you learn the basics, limit your bumping. We only have so many bumps in our career. If you do it excessively at the beginning of your career, you’re going to cut your career short. If you save your body, it will help you enormously.”

The transition from amateur to pro-wrestling: 

“For a good five years I was the best there was. I was their workhorse,” he said. “It was really cool to be able to transition and be as good in sports entertainment as I was in Olympic wrestling.”
