The Kurt Angle Show podcast often brings us interesting topics and debates. Kurt Angle commented on Doug Williams and AJ Styles and revealed the reasons why they were so good. Angle believes there are several reasons for this.

One of the reasons is that both were great athletes. “Well, the reason they were so good is they were both incredible athletes and they’re both amazing technicians. And Doug Williams coming over from the UK with his European style of wrestling, it really took notice of him.

He really stood out and I thought they could have used him a lot better than they actually did. I mean, having matches. AJ Styles was the right thing to do with Doug because I knew he’d have 4 or 5-star matches with all the top guys.

But I think that we dropped the ball a little bit with Doug Williams”. - he said, as quoted by pwmania.com

AJ Styles and John Cena

AJ Styles winning the TNA World Heavyweight Title at No Surrender 2009 is a moment that Angle will never forget.

He still remembers the reaction from the crowd.
“Yeah, it was a pretty special time. I really loved it. You know, AJ was so excited. He got the fans all riled up. They rushed the ring and they were carrying him around. It was really cool”.

Kurt Angle recently talked about John Cena and the best days of this great wrestler's career. “He improved 1,000%. Watching him tonight at this point in time here in 2005, he was 100 times better than he was in 2003.

And that’s all I ask, is that he continues to improve. And I will tell you this: John Cena’s best work came when I left in 2006. His best work was in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013. That’s when he really came into his own. But he was still pretty damn good”.
