Kurt Angle Talks “Golden Truth” Tour, Retirement Match, Daniel Bryan’s Wrestling Style

TNA star Kurt Angle recently spoke with Cult Of Whatever while promoting his upcoming ‘Golden Truth’ Q&A tours. Here are some highlights:

On his expectations for the upcoming tour: 

“I think the question and answer sessions are a brilliant idea, and a great concept. I’ve never really had the fans control what I’m going to be saying before, they’re going to be asking the questions and I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of great questions. There may even be some questions that I might not be able to answer but I love the whole idea of this tour and I can’t wait to get started especially with it being in the UK as well. The fans are a lot more respectful and a lot more responsive, they’re also very well educated and that’s why I love going over to the UK so much. I know fans have lots of questions about the past and what I’ve got planned for the future so this is a great chance for me to tell my story.”

On the current TNA roster:

We have a great locker room at TNA and there is a lot of new talent and it’s been refreshing, I’ve finally been able to get my hands on some new, young fresh talent this year. I had a lot of fun working with both Eric Young and EC3, two guys I hadn’t worked with much before. I think the guys from the UK are doing really well, Drew Galloway, Rockstar Spud and Bram all really stand out for me.”

On who he would pick for a possible retirement match:

Oh gosh, if I had to pick one guy to wrestle to end my career with it would be Daniel Bryan. I think Daniel is an amazing wrestler and I know him and I would be able to have an incredible match similar to what Shawn Michaels and I did at WrestleMania 21. He is an extraordinary talent especially in the ring, they don’t get much better than him – he is the one I would like to get my hands on somewhere, sometime I would love that match.

On Daniel Bryan’s Wrestling Style:

“Daniel Bryan has his style of wrestling and he’s his own worst enemy. When he goes out to the ring he puts everything on the line especially his body. When you’re a wrestler you are not meant to be harming yourself but Daniel Bryan seems to be doing harm to himself whether he’s doing an offensive move or if someone is doing a move on him. Daniel is always bumping, his high running knee he takes a bump, when his flying through the ropes he’s taking a bump but that’s his style and he’s not going to change the way he wrestles, he’s going to wrestle like that until the day he retires. I just hope he gets another chance to get back in the ring and finish his career the way he wants to before he retires.”
