• “He’s one of the best technical workers in the business” – WWF Legend On Brock Lesnar
During a recent edition of his podcast, Old School WWF Legend Kurt Angle praised Brock Lesnar’s in-ring skills.
Kurt knew Brock had everything it takes to become successful in the wrestling business, and that’s exactly what happened.
Here’s what Angle said:
“I knew that Vince wanted a program between Brock and I. Brock had just started like maybe 6 months prior, he was relatively new but he was kicking butt.
He had a big impact on the business, he had all the tools necessary to become a hugely successful pro wrestler.
He’s one of the best technical workers in the business, especially when he wants to sell for you.”
Angle then talked about Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles from Survivor Series 2017, and said that’s the kind of match he wanted against Brock at WrestleMania 19 back in 2003.
“I remember a match between him and AJ Styles a couple years ago, he said what about this AJ kid? I said he’s really good, if you sell for him Brock, you’ll have a 5 star match.
That was the type of match I wanted to have with Brock. Brock had to sell in order to make the fans believe that I could win.”
