“I Consider My Work In TNA Better”: WWE Hall Of Famer Opens Up About Their Career

Kurt Angle, renowned for his illustrious wrestling career in both WWE and TNA, shared insights into his time with TNA, revealing a preference for his tenure with the company over his WWE career.

During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Angle expressed his belief that his work in TNA surpassed his WWE accomplishments. He attributed this sentiment to his personal growth as a wrestler and the quality of matches he engaged in during his time with TNA.

Angle reflected on his evolution as a wrestler, noting that his TNA experience allowed him to truly come into his own. He recalled his journey from initially following guidance in matches to eventually leading them, a transition he credited to the opportunities afforded to him by TNA.

I consider my work in TNA better than my work in WWE as well. And the reason is I kind of came into my own. I started out in pro wrestling, I only trained for 7 months before I went on television. That’s a very short period of time. And I was getting better and better. In my first two years, I was in the ring, I was following the wrestler that would talk me through the matches. I started getting better and better, and I became this great follower that I could start leading matches.

Having spent approximately seven years in the wrestling business prior to joining TNA, Angle highlighted the pivotal role the company played in elevating his skills. He particularly emphasised the calibre of talent he had the privilege to work with, including AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Sting, Jeff Jarrett, Abyss, and Bobby Roode.

I’d say I became my best about 7 years into the business, and that’s when I went to TNA. I had some great matches with AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Sting, Jeff Jarrett, Abyss, and Bobby Roode; a lot of great talents that I got to work with that I was very honoured to go up against them in TNA. And I’m very proud of the career I had.

Reflecting on his time in TNA, Angle expressed pride in the memorable matches he had and the esteemed opponents he faced. He regarded his stint with TNA as a period where he reached his peak as a wrestler, attributing much of his success to the platform and opportunities provided by the company.
