Apollo Crews talks sharing the ring with legend, Kurt Angle
During Kurt Angle's retirement tour, one of the wrestlers that he chose to face on the way out was current United States Champion, Apollo Crews.
Speaking with talkSPORT, Crews was able to expand upon how much that moment meant to harm and what Kurt Angle has taught him.
“It was pretty cool just being able to talk to him, but wrestling him was a whole different level. And being the first to wrestle him on his retirement tour in his hometown, I mean it was fantastic. It was cool,” said Crews. “He’s such a good human being. Such a nice guy, great to work with. He’s easy to approach; if I have a question or anything, I can text, call him, talk to him in person or whatever and he’s always going to take the time out to give you advice or talk to you about whatever that issue [is]. He told me to keep fighting, stick with it and he’s one of the guys that also wanted to see me do really well. So that’s enough reason right there to go out and fight for everything I want.”
Apollo is set to defend his newly-won United States title for the first time on the June 1, 2020 episode of Monday Night Raw. Fightful will have live coverage of the event beginning Monday evening at 8 p.m. Eastern.
