Kurt Angle Says Chris Jericho And Eddie Guerrero Would've Fit Perfectly In TNA Wrestling

Kurt Angle names some of his WWE contemporaries that he believes would have done well in TNA.

When Kurt Angle left the WWE for TNA Wrestling in 2006, it gave that promotion a new legitimacy and set up the next five years to be prosperous for the promotion. Kurt Angle would stay with the promotion until he went back to WWE 11 years later for his Hall of Fame induction.

In that time, Kurt Angle helped establish names like AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode, James Storm, and more. Now, Kurt is naming other WWE Superstars that could have potentially helped grow TNA during the company's heyday.

During the recent Q&A episode of his podcast, Kurt Angle named Chris Jericho and Eddie Guerrero as two names he believes could have really helped the TNA Superstars reach a new level.

"Gosh. Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrero. Those guys, they would have carried the company on their backs. They would have done extremely well. They've always done well whether they were in WCW or WWE didn't matter. I mean AEW now look at Chris Jericho. He's still going as good as he's ever been. It's just unbelievable. But I think those two guys would have been really good for TNA."

Unfortunately, by the time that Kurt Angle had joined TNA, Eddie Guerrero had already passed away a year beforehand Chris Jericho was on his hiatus from professional wrestling and would return to WWE a year later. His band, Fozzy, did provide some pay-per-view theme songs for TNA Wrestling through the years, however.

Elsewhere in the Q&A, Kurt Angle spoke about wishing he could craft the ultimate Team Angle faction. Learn more here.
