Kurt Angle On If He Had A Better Run In WWE Or TNA, Commentating Bobby Lashley's Fight, Moving On

Kurt Angle spoke to wrestling journalist Tom Feaheny about his last UK tour with the company. They sent us these highlights:

His last tour with Impact Wrestling in the UK:

"This is my last time with Impact Wrestling and the UK tour, this is the way I wanted to go out. It's a great chance for me to have some of my best matches before I move onto something else."

If he planned to stay in wrestling for so long:

"No, I actually told other wrestlers I would be in it for five years. I've never been a person to go a long time or outstay my welcome. In Olympic wrestling after I won the gold medal, I retired. I could have gone another four years, but with professional wrestling I caught the bug, it's a passion I have."

His plan to teach wrestling:

"I haven't talked to anyone about coaching, but I'm not concerned I'm sure I can teach wherever I want to. I just want to take a break from professional wrestling. I've signed with an agency to start doing more movies."

His Bellator commentary debut:

"I've signed to be a commentator with Bellator, it's nice seeing other people getting beat up. I've had a blast, I just wish my first commentary lasted longer as Lashley won in a minute but it was a lot of fun. I think Lashley is a great wrestler and one of the best MMA fighters at the moment."

Whether his best run was in WWE or TNA:

"It's a hard question, but I had a better career in TNA than I did in WWE. In WWE I wrestled Shawn Michaels, Chris Beniot, Eddie Guerrero, The Rock, Triple H, Edge there were so many great wrestlers. In TNA I've had a lot of fun and I had experience and maturity in TNA that's why I was able to enjoy it more."

Who he wants to face in the UK:

"I would love to fight Eric Young, Bobby Roode, Bobby Lashley and EC3, but I want to wrestle a Brit. Drew Galloway, Bram or Spud and I don't expect the fans to cheer me, but it will be a lot of fun."

Angle also talks to @thomasfeaheny about his family life, his legacy in wrestling, what he thinks will happen in the future with the growth of the industry. You can check out the interview in the video above.
