• Kurt Angle On The Possibility Of Wrestling Sting In AEW
On the latest episode of his weekly podcast ‘The Kurt Angle Show’, our Olympic Hero discussed a possible match against Old School WCW Legend Sting in Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling.
Kurt Angle & Sting have faced each other multiple times in Dixie Carter’s TNA from 2006 until Sting left the promotion in 2014.
Below are the highlights:
On the possibility of wrestling Sting in AEW:
“Well, considering I’m 52 and Sting’s a lot older than I am, I’d say the chances are no, slim to none, for many reasons, we’re too old.
We’re not too old to wrestle younger guys, you wrestle a younger guy who can spice up the match and make it a little more interesting, you can have some great matches still.
When you start losing a step and you’re both older and both lost a step, it’s really hard to make that up.
Undertaker vs. Goldberg, they were both up in age but if you put Goldberg with Brock Lesnar or Undertaker with AJ Styles, or switch them around, you’re going to get a great match.
The younger guy keeps the match flowing, keeps the match moving.
To have two older guys who should most likely be retired but they can still go, it’s going to be a lot more difficult to have a successful match.”
On their time in TNA:
“We hit it off from the start, we got along perfectly well, we had a lot in common. He was just one of the most humble people I had ever talked to.
I can’t believe that he was a part of WCW at a time where things there were very political and guys were stabbing each other in the back.
For Sting, as nice as he is and as generous as he is, it’s crazy that he had that much success in that company, that’s just outlandish.
He’s such a great guy, he’s one of the most solid guys I’ve ever met.”
