Kurt Angle On If Jeff Jarrett Should Have Been In The Main Event Mafia

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently took to his The Kurt Angle Show podcast, where he discussed how fellow WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley was cool with taking whatever bumps he wanted in their match, but Foley was really nervous about wrestling him.

Kurt Angle said:

“He was cool with taking whatever bumps he wanted. I mean, Mick, he’s gonna do some crazy stuff, but he was more concerned about his conditioning. He was nervous that he couldn’t stay in the ring with a current angle for longer than 10 minutes. And he was right. So, Mick told me to back off a little bit, don’t be as intense, but I don’t know how to do that. And I continue to be as intense. I backed off. I did give him some space. I gave him some room to breathe occasionally, but Mick was really nervous about that.”

Kurt Angle also discussed how Jeff Jarrett would have been a good member of the Main Event Mafia, but at that particular time in 2009 it wasn’t a good idea, with Jarrett being the owner of TNA Wrestling.

Kurt Angle said:

“No, I don’t think so. I mean, it all depends; Jeff would’ve been a good member of the mafia, don’t get me wrong. Jeff is a great heel. But at this point in time, him being the owner of the company, it would’ve kind of been like, you know, the mafia would be unstoppable, like, period. Right. You know, having the owner of the company in Yeah. On your side, you know that that’s a bit too much.”
