WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has explained who he thinks the most underrated wrestler of all time is.
After wrestling for two decades and traveling around the world, Kurt Angle has had his fair share of opponents of all shapes and sizes. Yet out of all the wrestlers he has competed against Angle named one as the most underappreciated and most deserving of greater credit: Christian Cage.
Speaking on his Kurt Angle Show podcast, Angle strongly believes that Christian Cage ought to get more recognition for his abilities:
“[Christian Cage] is the most underrated wrestler of all time. “He never gets the credit that he deserves. … He’s a superstar, don’t get me wrong. But he’s always been in the shadow of Edge and he’s actually just as good as Edge, and he’s actually better than all of us at putting matches together. He comes up with incredible spots and incredible ideas. The kid is so creative and he goes out on the mat and backs it up. He’s just an incredible wrestler.”
Kurt Angle and Cage had many matches together in both WWE and in TNA. While in WWE, the two of them spent a lot more time teaming together than they did facing off. It wasn’t until both men ended up in TNA in the mid-2000s that they had high-profile singles matches against each other as they spent the better part of both 2007 and 2008 competing over the TNA World Heavyweight Title.
