Wrestling legend Kurt Angle has heaped praise on new Impact World Champion Christian Cage, who he believes is one of the most underrated wrestlers of all time.
On a recent episode of his The Kurt Angle Show podcast, Angle spoke about Christian’s win over Kenny Omega to win the Impact World Championship, and also discussed his personal relationship with Cage.
“Every once and awhile we touch base. We were best friends, Edge, Christian, myself and Rhyno. We really were best friends, we spent a lot of time together and that time was so valuable. I’ll never forget what [Christian] did for me, what he did for the business.
“Christian is one of the most underrated professional wrestlers of all time. This guy should actually already be in the Hall of Fame, that’s how good he was. I think someday he will be, I just think he’s been under appreciated.”
Angle also discussed Matt and Jeff Hardy on the podcast, and what the main differences between the two brothers is.
“They’re both extremely talented but both have different styles though. Jeff was more of a reckless kind of wrestler, kind of a daredevil and Matt Hardy was more of a technician. They had different styles. Don’t get me wrong, Matt Hardy could do some high diving stuff but for the most part he was very technical. They were both very good at what they did, I think that Jeff might have had a little bit more success than Matt. I think it was just because of his persona and I don’t care attitude that Vince really loved about him. For Matt, Matt Hardy was really talented as well.”
