Kurt Angle says it’s sad that a top star from TNA didn’t have the success which would have got him in the Hall Of Fame.

At Bound For Glory in 2009, Kurt Angle faced Matt Morgan in a match which the Olympic gold medalist himself felt would have been deserving of five stars. However, while Angle’s reputation would go on to thrive, Morgan’s did not and his time in WWE didn’t end as fruitfully either.

In a Q&A via AdFreeShows, Kurt Angle gave a candid assessment of Morgan, and isn’t sure why he didn’t become one of the top stars in the industry.

Matt Morgan, I don’t know what the hell happened with him. I wrestled him at Bound for Glory one year. The match, whether Dave Meltzer wants to say this or not, was a five-star match. I had a great match with Matt Morgan. I thought really highly of him and I thought he was going to have a really good run in TNA. I’m not sure what happened.

Honestly, I know in WWE there was some problems with his attitude. He didn’t really have that type of attitude when he came to TNA, so I’m not sure what happened, but I’m really shocked that Matt Morgan is not in the TNA Hall of Fame because he had the talent to be and it’s sad that it didn’t happen.

Hernandez “Took The Back Seat” To Homicide

In assessing another wrestler he felt could have done more, Angle looked at Hernandez who he felt struggled when it came to singles competition.

I don’t think Hernandez was meant to be a singles wrestler. He always took the back seat to Homicide. Homicide did all the talking. Hernandez didn’t really capture that experience of cutting promos. I think if he would have done that, he would have been a huge star.

In another TNA-related comment, Kurt Angle recently discussed the formation of The Main Event Mafia.
