WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently joined The Wrassingh show for an in-depth talk on all things pro-wrestling, including his thoughts on AEW and why he believes the promotion needs a little more structure and needs to stop their “wild west”-esque behavior. Check out the Olympic Hero’s full thoughts on the subject in the highlights below.
Says AEW is like the Wild West because there isn’t too much structure:
“I just think the company might be a little too loose… it’s more like the Wild West… not as organized as it should be. The wrestlers make up their own promos, say their own thing, do their own thing, and I think there should be an organization within the company where the writers tell the wrestlers what to say and enhance their characters.”
Compared to WWE, which he says is a tightly run ship:
“I don’t know… by putting the wrestlers in charge of their own promos and pre-tapes… and even their matches, I don’t know if they have agents for the matches, producers for their matches. So I think they should be overlooked, the talent. That’s what makes WWE so good, why they are so organized and why the show is always so tight.”
