• Kurt Angle Compares His Push To Roman Reigns’ Forced Push
During a recent Q&A session with Pro Wrestling Junkies, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle compared his push to Roman Reigns’ push.
Below is what Angle said:
“When I won the title the first time, I was only there for about 10 months. When I first started, I was on a big winning streak and won a bunch of matches. I won King Of The Ring, Intercontinental Title, European Title, but then I started having a bunch of losses.
I was wrestling Undertaker and that was a squash match, Big Show was a squash match. Then I think I was in a triple threat with Rock and HHH that I didn’t win.
I hadn’t won a match in five months, so it kind of hit me out of nowhere when Vince called me four days before the pay-per-view to tell me he’s putting the title on me.
It was one of those things where it goes in phases. You start low and work your way to the mid-card, you win some matches, and then you lose some, then you win some and get to the main event level, and then you’re going to lose some matches again.
It’s not like a meteoric rise to the top. You go up a little bit, then down a bit, then back up a little, then down. It’s so the fans can get used to you and get used to seeing you in that situation.
The example today, whether you like him or not, he’s a ring general, and the guy is incredible – Roman Reigns. The problem with him is Vince just took him from zero to hero and the fans were confused, wondering, ‘Who this guy is?’ The thought was just like, ‘Who’s this guy and what’s he doing here? He must be Vince’s guy, and if that’s the case, I don’t like him.’
This heel turn has been a long time coming.”
