WWE Hall of Famer and former Monday Night Raw General Manager Kurt Angle recently did an interview with Sky Sports to promote WrestleMania 35 where he is slated to take on Baron Corbin in his farewell match.
During the interview, Angle talked about the parallels between his career and WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.
Angle and Rousey have some history together. Rousey teamed with Angle to defeat Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a mixed tag team match. This contest took place last year at WrestleMania 34 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This marked Rousey’s in-ring debut under the banner of the sports entertainment.
“I do see parallels. Whenever I see her she reminds me of myself and it’s very exciting to see that, very seldom do you see that,” he said. “I thought there would never be another Kurt Angle but when I look at Ronda I feel like I’m looking in the mirror. I’m very proud of her and she’s going to continue to get better that’s the scary part. I’m not sure if she’s going to do anything after WrestleMania — she might be taking a break, but I’m looking forward to seeing her coming back and doing some damage.”
WWE will hold WrestleMania 35 on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium and be broadcasted on their streaming service, WWE Network.
