Kurt Angle Talks Steve Austin And Wrestling Being Called 'Fake,' Angle & Gail Kim Pic, More
- The Times Of India has an article about Angle appearing on the Indian television series, Balveer, at this link.
- NDTV.com has an interview with Angle here, who was putting over Indian Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar. Angle advised Kumar to go into MMA rather than pro wrestling, feeling that he will have more success there. He also talked about people calling pro wrestling "fake."
"If one calls it fake, then it's an insult to the commitment of a pro wrestler," said Angle. "It is (an insult if you call it fake). It is rather pre-determined. We both know who the winners are going to be. It is one of the barbaric form of athletics I have done. In that ring, we wrestle on woods like this (points to the table in front). Imagine getting slammed on that. So, we have to learn how to avoid being injured when getting slammed. Pro Wrestling is the toughest I have ever done. I broke my neck four times, broke my arms, legs. I had a great career there and I am proud of it."
"Steve and I had a great chemistry," Angle said. "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."
