Kurt Angle Says He Doesn't Want The TNA World Title
By Tim Brown | June 20, 2009
On who will win the TNA Title on Sunday: "There's been a lot of preparation, a lot of ideas thrown around. But it's been kept quiet. The bookers, the writers are not telling anyone who the winner is going to be. As wrestlers we usually know well ahead of time, a month ahead of time. Would I bet on Kurt Angle? Well, I haven't won (the title) in awhile. Do I need it? Not necessarily."
On passing the torch: "When I win, it's not necessarily to get myself over. It's usually to hand it over to the next guy. I believe the business will get stronger the more superstars we create. I've won a gold medal, I don't need to win a 13th (title) for my ego. I'm a team player. I've always been unselfish. I'm not afraid to lose. It's not about the championships, it's not about beating Ric Flair's record. If I can help develop 10 more stars, I can hang up my boots."
On TNA’s high risk style: "We've got to be careful not to hurt five of the company's top athletes. But as men and wrestlers, we will end up doing some crazy stuff."
