Kurt Angle reacts to Kenny Omega’s recent comments about him

This week on, Kurt Angle covered WWE Survivor Series 2001. That show marked the end of the Invasion storyline pitting wrestlers that made the move from WCW and ECW against WWE stars. Angle worked with several top names around this time, including Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Angle gave his thoughts on Austin:

“Working with Steve was awesome. He is so underrated as an in-ring worker, I think because his character is so strong. I’ve said this before. He is known as this ass kicking, beer drinking, redneck, badass, Stone Cold Steve Austin, but nobody really appreciated his in-ring work. He was really good in the ring. He was such a great in-ring general. He improvised when he had to. He was one of the best workers I ever worked with. I learned a lot from him.”

Angle went on to say, “I learned so much from Stone Cold from how to do pretapes, how to do promos, and how to do matches. He had more of an effect on me than anybody in the company.”

Kenny Omega said this week that Kurt Angle was one his aspirations for being where is today in the ring. Here is Angle’s response to that:

“That means a lot to me. To be in that position, to be able to have someone like Kenny Omega look up to me, that’s a true honor because the kid is incredible.  What he’s been able to do the past 10 years in professional wrestling over in Japan and here in the United States, he was the biggest star, and the most talented superstar that never went to WWE.  He will go down in history as that, if he never enters WWE.  His success, what he’s had in Japan and AEW is phenomenal.  I haven’t seen a talent like him in a long time.  I would say that he’s every bit as talented as Rey Mysterio (who Angle thinks very highly of), and he belongs on that upper echelon of talents.  He is one of the greatest workers in the world today.”
