Kurt Angle comments on a WWE star that he thinks will ‘eventually’ win the World Title

During his recent podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle talked about his time working with Robert Roode in Impact Wrestling…

“I was expected to drop the title to Bobby. They were doing all these vignettes with Bobby and his family, how hard of a worker he was, what a great family man he was, and it was all set up to drop the title to him. And I don’t know what happened, it wasn’t me. I’m going to be the first one to admit, I did not ask to keep the title. As a matter of fact, I was severely injured. I had a torn hamstring, not a pulled hamstring, but torn. It was almost torn all the way in half, my leg was black all the way down to the heel in my foot. I didn’t even know if I could wrestle at Bound for Glory. They didn’t tell me till the day of the show at Bound for Glory that I was going to retain the title, and I was a little pissed off because I didn’t want to carry the title any longer because of my injury. I wanted to rest up, and heal up, and come back in perfect form. Unfortunately, they decided against Bobby getting the title, which was kind of a downer for the pay per view, especially us being on last. It was a real flat finish.”

“He had everything it took, from his looks, to in-ring ability, to promo skills, relating to a character that he wanted to do, Bobby was one of the best. I knew that he would have a lot of promise and have a lot of success anywhere he went, WWE, TNA, AEW, it wouldn’t have mattered. Bobby Roode was going to be successful. I think that the company is so wrapped up in making sure they’re producing their stars, sometimes they overlook other guys, and it’s unfortunate. But eventually, Bobby will get his chance. I know he’s gotten a lot of chances that didn’t last very long, but I think that he will eventually get his chance, and he will be WWE Champion, eventually.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingInc.com)
