Kurt Angle Looks At Riddle’s Growth In WWE, Thinks WWE Should Tread Lightly On Not Signing Indy Stars

Kurt Angle recently appeared as a guest on Wrestling Inc. Daily for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During his appearance on the popular pro wrestling program, the WWE and IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Fame legend spoke about why WWE should tread lightly on not signing independent wrestling talent, Riddle’s growth as a performer and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On why WWE should tread lightly on not signing independent wrestling talent: “I would tread very lightly on that because there are a lot of incredible independent wrestlers. Wrestlers that never did any real sport but they’re very good at their craft, and I would like to see the percentage. Fortunately, for me, I was a real athlete and won a gold medal at the Olympics. These kids that are trained to be pro wrestlers and working at the independent shows, they’re doing a lot of the work and they’re crafting their skills and their character. I don’t know how much character development occurs down at NXT, but I think a lot of character development occurs in independent shows.”

On Riddle’s growth as a performer in WWE: “He’s doing extremely well, but he came in with a character, the ‘Bro’ thing. It works so well, and they put him in the right place. They teamed him up with Randy Orton. Randy is more of a miserable guy that doesn’t get along with anybody, and here’s this kid that kind of makes Randy like him. Which, Randy never likes anybody. His character anyway, but he rubbed off on him, and it’s a great story. And those are the kinds of things that Gable Stevenson is going to need to have, along with his ability.”
