Kurt Angle recently spoke with Sam Roberts at Ringside Collectibles’ Ringside Fest. During the interview, he gushed over Ronda Rousey. Here are the highlights:
On How Quickly Rousey Picked Up The Business:
I think Ronda exceeded expectations from everybody. She did her homework. You can’t lie to anyone, Ronda was new to WWE at the time. She had very little experience but what she did at WrestleMania was unbelievable; she stole the show. I knew before we went in there (the ring), Triple H and I knew she should be the focus. If you watch that match, the focus is really on Ronda. That is what we had to do in order to get her to be where she is right now. She did a really great job.
Angle On Rousey Being Best Known For Her WWE Career When All Is Said & Done:
I can’t believe how well, how quickly she adapted to it. I felt like it was me. A couple of weeks ago, she cut a promo (on Nikki Bella) in the ring and I was thinking that she was getting it way too quickly. This girl has been the best in judo, the best in the UFC but I think this is her thing. I think the WWE is the thing she’ll be the most known for. If healthy, another six-ten years, this will be her legacy.
