WWE, as well as professional wrestling in general, have been able to count on several great athletes over the years who have overcome existing barriers and redefined the way of conceiving this business. Kurt Angle had the chance to work with numerous superstars during his heyday, a privilege that helped him stand out as one of the most iconic figures of the 2000s.
During the last episode of the Kurt Angle Show broadcast on AdFreeShows, the former Olympic gold medalist reserved words of praise especially for Kane and The Undertaker. In particular, Angle recalled his match with The Big Red Machine played just before the PPV No Way Out in 2001.
"It was something really fantastic. Kane is hands down one of the best guys he's ever worked with. He had an uncommon talent and knew how to stay in the ring. Besides, he was a very remarkable athlete considering his size," he said.
It is often said that it is not easy to find the right chemistry with the giants of wrestling, but in the case of Undertaker and Kane this is not the case. "It was simply an honor to be able to step into the ring with Undertaker and Kane.
They weren't as slow and awkward as you might expect from people of that size, in fact they were light. They helped me tremendously when I had to perform a lifting move. It was never difficult to work with them, I had a great time and we always had great chemistry," added Angle.
Kurt then focused on The Rock’s incredible talent, capable of breaking through even in the world of cinema. "Dwayne was fantastic, a great athlete. He was always one step ahead of everyone else and his phenomenal ability was to know how to sell himself.
He had the gift of making everything more flashy than it should be, which is the main goal of sports entertainment. Well, Dwayne had absolutely no rivals from this point of view."
