Kurt Angle has bestowed a lot of praise on one of WWE’s biggest names by comparing him to a wrestler that many fans consider to be one of the best wrestlers ever.

The current WWE United States Champion Seth Rollins is considered by many fans of the company to be one of the best all-around performers in the business today. Whether you like Rollins as the “Visionary” or “Revolutionary” character, it’s hard to deny how talented he is in the ring because he has great matches all the time.

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is familiar with Rollins from when Angle was the General Manager on Raw and also when he teamed up with Rollins as a Roman Reigns replacement with The Shield. Angle joined Rollins and Dean Ambrose to defeat Kane, Braun Strowman, The Miz, Sheamus & Cesaro at TLC 2017. That was Angle’s first WWE match in 11 years.

Another man that Angle knew really well in his career was the legendary “Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels. Angle and Michaels had a dream match at WrestleMania 21 in 2005 that absolutely lived up to the hype and is considered by many fans to be one of the greatest matches of all time.

On a recent episode of his Kurt Angle Show podcast, the Olympic Gold Medallist compared Rollins to Michaels.

“You know what? It’s not too much of a leap to say that he is the next Shawn Michaels. I believe he will be eventually. He is not there yet because Shawn put in a lot more years. So you know, 30-something years.”

Angle went on to credit Rollins for putting on five-star matches, which is another way of saying great matches.

“He does remind me of Shawn because everybody he wrestles, he has five-star matches with. I mean, when you have that kind of chemistry with everyone, you’re an incredible performer. And I think Seth Rollins is a lot like Shawn Michaels.”

The 36-year-old Rollins will be celebrating a decade on WWE’s main roster this coming November since he debuted at Survivor Series 2012.
