During a recent Q&A session on Facebook, a fan asked WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle the following:
I’ve noticed since you came back to WWE the way you walk is different. Did you have knee surgery or a major injury or something?
Below is what Angle had to say about this:
“No, I’ve always walked that way. My knees will not straighten out entirely when I stand. It’s most likely because of my 35 year wrestling career. I’ve always had to be in a squat position when I wrestled. And that’s all I’ve done for 35 years.”
Angle also answered questions like if he has any regrets leaving WWE for TNA, his thoughts on 205 Live, Kenny Omega in WWE & more.
Below are the highlights:
Do you have any regrets at all in leaving WWE for TNA earlier in your career?
“I can’t. I had a great career in TNA, maybe better than my WWE career. I had a reduced schedule there. And I wrestled so many greats AJ, Joe, Sting, Roode…To name a few. My body couldn’t hold up to the rigorous schedule in WWE at the time. I always imagine the career I could have had if I stayed in WWE. It would have been incredible. BUT I couldn’t stay so I can’t keep asking myself “what if”?”
Will you be doing an autobiography eventually? You will surely have more stories than any other wrestler!
“Yes. Someday. I have a documentary I’m making right now. I’m excited to show all of you my entire life story. Stay tuned.”
Your thoughts on current 205 live and the great matches they are producing, do they deserve more spotlight?
“205 has opened up a whole new world of wrestling for the fans. I love what they do. I think they will get much more airtime in the future. They deserve it.”
Do you think it’s important to finish your education before you start pro wrestling or is it more important to start as young as possible and get as many matches under your belt as you can?
“Education first! You’re still young after you graduate college. If you skip college and promise yourself you’ll go back and graduate later on in life, there’s a 99 percent chance you won’t. Get your degree. Then focus on wrestling.”
Your daily routine? Like how much do you sleep?
“Sleep. 6 hours. Body maintenance and training 2 hours.”
If Kenny Omega comes to WWE who would your dream match be for him?
“Seth Rollins or AJ Styles. I’d love a shot at Kenny as well. I have a list of dream opponents that I would like to compete against. These 3 are in the list.”
Who’s your best friend in the wrestling business?
“The one I’m closest to right now? Rhyno. I’ve known him 20 years. He’s a blast to be around.”
If you are given a choice that you and HBK will team up against a certain team in the world, which would you pick?
“Tag teams? Cesaro and Shaemus or The Usos. But the most cohesive tag team right now is….. the Revival. They are amazing together as a unit. Great things coming from them.”
