Hulk Hogan was most recently featured on WWE TV when he appeared on the January 7th edition of Monday Night RAW to honor the late "Mean" Gene Okerlund. Angle gave his take on Hogan's comeback and shared that we all are entitled to our second chance and added that while he does not condone the racist remarks that Hogan made, he believes Hulk has a good soul.

I think that we are all entitled to 2nd chances." Angle noted. "I don’t condone anything he did or said, but I know Hulk. He’s got a really good soul. He will take this 2nd chance and utilize it for the good, not the bad."

The topic of taking direct chair shots to the head came up and how concussions are taken far more seriously today than they were years prior in professional wrestling. Angle shared that he never took a direct chair shot to the head and always put his hands up to avoid the shot.

"I never took a direct chair shot. Most of us haven’t. I’ve always put my hands up to protect my head from the chair. Anyone that hasn’t put their hands up is crazy. Period!!!!"

The multi-time WWE World Champion also named his top five WWE superstars of all-time and here's his lineup:

"That’s tough." Angle continued, "I didn’t watch wrestling until I started in 1999. So..... hmmmm. Ric Flair. Undertaker. Austin. Rock. Tie: Cena / HHH. They were all pros to work with too."
