Kurt Angle on Chris Benoit: "I love the guy for.."

Kurt Angle decided to talk about his match against Chris Benoit. Angle has tremendous respect for Benoit and his accomplishments. "Oh, by the way. I did want to say this. I know that people don’t really care about me talking about Chris Benoit, but I’m not doing it for Chris Benoit.

If I erase Chris Benoit, I’m going to erase most of my career. And I’m not going to erase myself. So, a lot of people might not agree with me having this show today talking about Chris and everything. I don’t condone what he did outside the ring, but what he did in the ring was phenomenal, and I love the guy for that”.

- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com Angle went so far as to consider Benoit number 1. Benoit had a successful career and was one of the key men in WWE, but the situation ended tragically for him. “Top 2, actually no, number 1.

He is definitely number 1. I put him over everybody as far as in the ring wrestling, not overall entertainer, but in the ring, he was the best”.

Kurt Angle: Chris was the most intense wrestler

Chris had certain characteristics that made him so special.

Intensity, charisma, readiness; All this influenced him to be great in his job. His career has been impressive. “Chris was the most intense wrestler I’ve ever been in the ring with, bar none. But I was pretty intense as well, and that’s the one thing that I liked about Chris was that he matched my intensity.

I never wrestled another person ever in my life since Chris Benoit that ever matched the intensity he had. That guy was so tough, so strong, so intense, so good. It’s hard to believe that a human being could be that good”.
