WWE/TNA Roundtable: Kurt Angle Is the Most Valuable Veteran in TNA
TNA loves bringing in new stars or, should I say, they love bringing in old WWE stars. Many of TNA’s biggest stars are former WWE veterans. However, while that is not a great position for the company, the obsession with WWE talent did bring them their most important veteran.
In fact, it brought TNA one of the most important stars in professional wrestling’s history: Kurt Angle. Possibly the greatest wrestler of all time. A man that made ever Shawn Michaels and the Undertaker step it up a notch just to compete with him.
Angle is far and away the most important TNA veteran on the roster. In fact, he is probably the most important currently active professional wrestling veteran. Over his years on TNA, Angle has led the company to more success than Hulk Hogan or Ric Flair ever could have. Angle has made the championship mean something while also putting over young stars ranging from AJ Styles to James Storm.
This man is possibly still the best wrestler in the company, yet he never feels overpoweringly present. He just fits where he is needed while still being possibly the biggest star for the company.
Angle makes young stars look like veterans. He makes rising stars look like they are already at the top. At the same time, he can still put on the best match of the night almost consistently unless AJ Styles is in top form.
I know RVD could be said to be doing the same thing, but even huge fans of RVD will probably admit to two things: Angle is a better wrestlers, and RVD has never been a huge star for mainstream promotions.
RVD will always be loved and respected by many especially ECW lovers, but he will never be the consistent performer and star that Angle is.
At the same time, Sting is almost the same. He is a good and loyal veteran, but most would rather see Angle in the main scene. Why? Because he still fits there. Angle doesn’t even feel like the old star he really is.
Seriously, at 43 years old, this man wrestles like a peaking veteran in his mid-thirties, and he plays the roles stars that age would be expected to play.
Angle is a legend. An underrated icon. Beloved by many especially the wrestler he has performed with. His ability and instincts still exceed nearly every other star out there, and he is one of the lead stars of the program.
He is an amazing veteran who does more for TNA than any other star including the younger talent. Oh it’s true, it’s true.
