Bully Ray speaks highly of Kurt Angle.
WWE Hall Of Famer and RAW GM Kurt Angle has competed in the ring three times since his return as a full-time character on WWE TV in April of 2017. Angle wrestled at the 2017 'TLC' PPV alongside Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. Angle teamed up with Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34 where they defeated Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in Ronda Rousey's in-ring debut and Kurt competed in the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match a few weeks after WrestleMania.
"The Olympic Gold-medalist" does a Q&A session once a week over his Facebook page and during the latest session, Angle responded to the question of will he have another run as a top player in WWE and Angle answered with he following:
“I hope so. That’s up to the powers that be. I’m healthy right now. Ready to go if I get called on.”
Angle's response has garnered the attention of those who have personally worked with him like fellow WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray. During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio with Dave LaGreca and Bully Ray, the two parties discussed the idea of Kurt Angle having one more run as a top player in the WWE and Bully stated that Kurt could offer the company and the talent roster a lot by being in the ring on a consistent basis.
“Kurt Angle is an f'ing machine. There’s is nothing he can’t do. He has a gear that most wrestlers don’t have. If Kurt Angle was in a ring right now working with some of these younger guys, they’d be tearing the house down and he’s the perfect guy to be teaching high-end superstars how to get to the next level. Kurt is that damn good in the ring.” Bully continued, “If there was something where Kurt Angle… there was a really good story where Kurt had to come out of retirement and, you know, wrestle again, I definitely think he could do it. Get some reps under his belt, Kurt is a great storyteller in the ring, has an incredible move-set, understands psychology. There’s nothing that Kurt Angle couldn’t do. One of my favorite people to be in the ring [with], when I was working any singles matches because I had total trust and confidence in him that he’d be able to put a match together that would benefit the both of us. [A] lot of those young guys and gals could learn from Kurt Angle.” Bully then commented on Kurt being 40-years old, “So what. I’m so tired of this age bullsh*t in pro wrestling. Back in the day, pro wrestlers were hitting their prime at 40 to 50."
