The latest installment of The Kurt Angle Show Podcast features the WWE Hall Of Fame legend offering high praise for a pair of current WWE Superstars.
On his new official podcast, the former Olympic gold medalist offered high praise for Billie Kay and Alexa Bliss for their recent work on WWE television.
Featured below is an excerpt from the show where the WWE and IMPACT Wrestling Hall Of Fame legend offers some strong praise for the two WWE Superstars.
“We need some gimmicky characters. A lot of wrestlers have turned into high flying technical bad*sses. Everybody wants to be a bad*ss. Nobody wants to be entertaining or funny or have an odd character. Everybody wants to be the cool guy or the cool girl. There are some really interesting individuals in WWE. The Fiend is one of them. Billie Kay, I love the way she rambles on. She’s just different. They need characters like that. It works extremely well for the company. It adds another depth to the programming. What Alexa is doing right now that the Fiend is gone, this is good TV. A lot of fans may not like it, but they’re going to be drawn to it. It’s really different and it’s really cool. I think we need to get more into more storyline related TV shows where wrestling is kind of a soap opera but we got away from that for a while. We became ‘I’m better than you. No, I’m better than you. Let’s have a match.’ Those gimmicky characters really help.”
