He also talks about working with Stone Cold...
- DNAIndia.com recently interviewed TNA wrestler Kurt Angle. Below are some highlights:
Angle on working with Stone Cold Steve Austin: "Steven and I had a great chemistry. We both did each other wrong many times. Ultimately, I would say he was one of the best I have seen in my life. He was better than anybody in the ring. Not just his character, but his ability to talk on the microphone with that attitude – he was a complete wrestler."
Angle on people who criticize wrestling as fake: "If you are a good, successful wrestler, you know you cannot script it. Rather, it is pre-determined. We both know who the winners are going to be. But if you call it fake, it is a slap on the face of a Pro Wrestler, specially if you say that to someone who has been an Olympic gold medalist. It is one of the brutal form of athletics I have done. I was an all American football player, Olympic champion but Pro Wrestling is the toughest I ever done."
