WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently spoke to Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture to talk all things pro-wrestling, including his idea on how to turn around the declining ratings and viewership issues affecting WWE in recent months.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On running shows without fans hurting the ratings:

"I think that crowds are going to make a huge difference.{in regards to ratings} It just sucks that right now all these companies are waiting for that {live audiences} to return. It’s been very frustrating and I know first hand because I worked as a producer in WWE and being in the meetings it just really sucks to not have the fans there."

On the wrestling business likely having a boom after a vaccine surfaces:

"There’s a lot of things we have to do that are different now so it’s going to take a while. I know we have to wait for this {vaccine} to come through, but it’s gonna take some time. I really think the business will boom afterward. I know the ratings have gone down to an extent but that’s because there’s no fans."
