On a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, the 2017 WWE Hall of Famer praised former WWE Superstar Matt Morgan and stated that Matt should have gone further in TNA, than he eventually did.
Matt Morgan wrestled for WWE from October 2003 until July 2005, before he became a bigger star in Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA), where he worked from 2007 till 2013, and later briefly returned to (the now renamed) IMPACT Wrestling in 2015 & 2017.
Here’s what Kurt Angle had to say about Morgan:
“Oh, He was a great talent, a great big guy. I had a match with him at Bound for Glory. It’s one of my favorite TNA matches of all time.
Matt’s a force. He was really good, and he never really reached his full potential.
I believe that he could have, could have gone a lot further in the company. Definitely.”
Kurt was then asked, whether TNA was missing an authority figure, to which he replied the following:
“They could have used one, yeah. Just to be in between people, between the good and bad guys, especially with the Main Event Mafia.
We were basically calling the shots. You know, there should have been an authority figure. Definitely. I agree with that.”
