Kurt Angle Thinks WWE Could Have Done More With Current AEW Star WWE

Kurt Angle thinks WWE could have done more with a current AEW star.

During his time with TNA and IMPACT Wrestling, Angle crossed paths with some of today’s stars from WWE and AEW.

Despite great matches and feuds with the likes of AJ Styles, Sting and Bobby Lashley, no one is more synonymous with Angle’s TNA run than Samoa Joe. The two offered some of the biggest and most legendary matches in company history.

In his first pay-per-view match with the company, Angle became the man who snapped Joe’s eighteen-month undefeated streak in IMPACT.

Speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Angle discussed how Joe was used in IMPACT Wrestling. He said:

“Joe, he got utilized properly in TNA at the beginning. Until he lost his undefeated streak against me, his value dropped dramatically.”

“They’ve never really picked back up and brought Joe back to the level he was when he was undefeated.”

During Angle’s final run of matches in WWE, Joe was able to face his rival one final time. Speaking on Samoa Joe’s run in WWE, Angle said:

“I think that WWE could have done more with him. They did do some, they did a lot, but I know they could have done more. He was that talented. I’m not sure if it had to do with his look. I love his look.”

“I think that everybody should be different; big, tall, short, wide. Doesn’t matter. I don’t know if it had to do with his look, but Samoa Joe was so talented.”

“He deserved to be a WWE Champion, he really did. Probably and that’s not me blowing smoke, that’s me being honest.”

On his fond memories of working with Joe in TNA/IMPACT and WWE, Angle said:

“Joe and I had the best chemistry. We always threw our two cents worth in, and we were always agreeable. I mean, if there was an idea that Joe liked, I liked it, too.”

“If there’s an idea that I liked, Joe liked it, too. We were more compatible than any other wrestlers, even more than AJ Styles and myself. Joe and I, it was almost like we were Frick and Frack like we were related.”

“You know, like we were twins because we thought the same way. We both had the same ideas, the same concepts.”

Samoa Joe is currently working for All Elite Wrestling and Ring of Honor under Tony Khan. He is the reigning ROH World Television Champion and will face CM Punk on the July 8 AEW Collision.
