Kurt Angle was recently interviewed by WrestlingInc. During the interview, he was asked if he was rooting for AEW to be successful, as well as what his comedic moments during his tenure with the WWE. Here are the highlights:
On If He Wants AEW To Succeed:
I want the fans to be excited about it. I’m gonna tell you this though, and I don’t wanna come around in five years and say ‘I told you so.’ Listen, WWE is the No. 1 brand and will always be No. 1…There’s no way in heck anybody’s gonna catch up to them. If this company… I’m not daring them, I’m just saying it’s not bad to be No. 2. If you’re gonna set out to be No. 1, then you’re gonna spend a lot of F’n money.”
What I’m saying is that I think AEW can be a good addition to wrestling. I believe that it can be a great No. 2 company. But if they wanna be No. 1, be prepared to spend hundreds of millions of dollars. If you’re gonna catch up to WWE, you’re gonna have to do that.
I welcome AEW to do whatever they want to do to become No. 1. But I’m telling you right now, they’re gonna have a great run but WWE is No. 1 and always will be.
On His Comedic Moments In WWE:
I want you to know this: every funny thing that I did in WWE 15, 20 years ago – I didn’t write any of it [laughs]. Our writer wrote that stuff. So, I didn’t come up with the content and just did what I was told to do. I got to do some crazy, funny stuff back then.
