During a recent in-depth discussion, WWE Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle, shared some of his personal views and anecdotes from his illustrious career. Most notably, he regarded The Dudley Boyz as the ultimate tag team in wrestling history, a nod that’s sure to ruffle a few feathers and spark debates among fans and pundits alike.
Angle Acknowledges La Resistance's Feats
Expanding on his thoughts about tag teams, Angle broached the topic of La Resistance. He conceded, “I’ll be honest, I never got in the ring with La Resistance. They were quite young during their prime in WWE”.
However, he was quick to acknowledge their accomplishments, particularly pointing out, “Having a victory over The Dudley Boyz for the World Championship is no small feat, considering I hold The Dudleys in such high regard”.
It’s worth noting that for Angle to declare The Dudley Boyz as the “greatest tag team of all time” carries significant weight. Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley, who collectively form The Dudley Boyz, have etched their name in wrestling history with countless championships across various promotions, intense table-breaking moments, and memorable rivalries.
Switching gears to the topic of WWE's stage designs, Angle’s take was quite candid. Although these custom sets play a significant role in the ambiance of every WWE show, Angle admitted, “You know, I really didn’t give the stage designs much thought”.
He continued, “Of course, I appreciated it all – the grandeur, the spectacle – especially since it brought in the big bucks. But, at the end of the day, it was always about the money for most of us. I was there to wrestle and entertain, not critique set designs”.
This revealing chat with Kurt Angle provided a window into the mindset of a wrestling legend. Angle, ever the professional, remains focused on the craft and the talent, reminding fans of the dedication and drive it takes to succeed in the squared circle.
While his opinions might not resonate with everyone, they certainly provide food for thought and will no doubt fuel conversations in the wrestling community for some time.
