Kurt Angle: "I felt terrible when I injured Bob Holly"

Kurt Angle was world wrestling champion in 1995, in the heavyweight category, before taking the gold medal at the Atlanta Olympics the following year (in the same specialty). The 53-year-old from Mount Lebanon was inducted into both the TNA Hall of Fame and the WWE Hall of Fame and is recognized by many as the most technical wrestler of any era.

In 2010, he was elected by the Wrestling Observer as the best performer of the 21st century. Although his career has been full of successes, Kurt Angle also had to manage some tough times. In the latest edition of his now famous podcast, the former WWE world champion recounted how he accidentally injured Hardcore Holly during a match.

The WWE Hall of Famer did the moonsault wrong by fracturing poor Holly's arm. He said: "I felt terrible after that incident and went to the hospital with him. After that, I took him to his hotel and monitored him for the next three or four weeks to make sure he was okay.

I was truly broken for doing him such serious damage. Injuring another athlete also means taking away the possibility of making money. Bob Holly had to pit for three or four months, if I remember correctly. He lost a lot of money that year and it was all my fault.

I've always had a great respect for Bob, that's why I took care of him." In recent years, Kurt has turned down several offers from All Elite Wrestling. "They offered me different roles, but I turned them down.

I'm a WWE symbol and it didn't feel right to go to a rival company. I will remain loyal to Vince McMahon until the end of my days. For the rest, it cannot be denied that AEW has hired some incredible athletes in the past few months.

At the helm is Chris Jericho, who is one of the best performers in the world. They have created a remarkable roster."

Jim Ross: "The Undertaker's intelligence in WWE has been underestimated"

One of the living legends of the WWE who most made fans of all generations dream of the McMahon company, responds to the name of The Undertaker, legendary gravedigger of the Stamford company, who for 30 years has trod the most important rings in the world of discipline, from Survivor Series to Summerslam, passing through the Royal Rumble and reaching Wrestlemania, his favorite ppv.

After staging a streak with 21 consecutive victories in the Grandaddy of Them All, the gravedigger had been defeated in the edition of Wrestlmania 30 by the Beast of the federation, Brock Lesnar, with the contribution of Mark Calaway who was however fundamental in the McMahon rings, even without his unbeaten streak intact.

After staging anthology feuds, to be studied in books dedicated to the discipline, against other pro-wrestling monsters, such as Shawn Michaels, Edge, Triple H, Hulk Hogan, John Cena and many others, Undertaker has decided to retire since wrestling wrestling, but hasn't decided to leave the pro-wrestling world anyway, waiting for WWE to give him some important job as a coach / trainer or trainer of some kind.

In the last episode of his very personal Grilling JR, the well-known WWE Hall of Famer, as well as the historical voice of Monday Night Raw, who spent the last few years at the helm of the AEW commentary team, Jim Ross, wanted to publicly praise the legendary WWE gravedigger, saying about the athlete's business intelligence: "Taker has several talents.

He also has a huge head for the business and someone like him could easily stage someone like Jeff Hardy or a hardcore match with Rob Van Dam and come up with plans that, thinking about it, could make even the most demanding booker compliment them at the end of the series.

evening. His intelligence is really underestimated." According to the well-known Hall of Famer, therefore, The Undertaker would be a tremendous talent even outside the rings of the McMahon company, when instead of fighting, he should be the one who makes the decisions about how he should go to finish the match and what direction it should follow.
