Kurt Angle Vents What He Thinks Is Wrong With AEW

Kurt Angle Vents What He Thinks Is Wrong With AEW WWE

Following the fallout from the AEW post-media scrum, plenty of wrestling stars have come out to have their say on AEW, and Kurt Angle is no exception.

The Olympic gold medalist (it’s true) was speaking on The Wrassingh Show podcast when he shared his thoughts on AEW and the creative freedoms that their talent benefits from.

Quick hint, Kurt Angle was not impressed with the off-the-cuff promos that current stars are cutting, saying:

“I just think the company might be a little too loose … it’s more like the Wild West … not as organized as it should be. The wrestlers are making up their own promos, saying their own thing, doing their own thing, and I think there needs to be organization within the company where you have the writers telling the wrestlers what to say and enhancing their characters.”

Kurt Angle suggested that more input was needed from producers to make the show on par with WWE.

He continued:

“I don’t know … putting the wrestlers in charge of their own promos and pre-tapes … and even their matches, I don’t know if they have agents for the matches, producers for their matches. So, I think they need to be overlooked, the talent. That’s what makes WWE so good, why they’re so organized, and why the show is always so tight.”

Angle’s comments are somewhat ironic as his Olympic gold medal is for American freestyle wrestling.

As a WWE Hall of Famer and former Raw General Manager, he may just be biased about the good ol’ days.
