Kurt Angle Wants To See Pro Wrestling Return To Simpler Stories

Kurt Angle is a fan of the simple stories in professional wrestling.

Kurt Angle is one of the names many fans and wrestlers alike will cite as one of the greatest in ring performers of all time. He has also been involved in some incredible stories during his career and with his knack for comedy, he helped to produce some incredible segments along the way.

While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, talked about wrestling’s evolution and how it’s changed from how it was back during his time in WWE, Angle would then go on to say he would like to see the sport of pro wrestling return to simpler storytelling.

Pro wrestling today is a lot different,” Angle said. “It’s a lot more high action, a little more high flying, a lot of acrobatics, they do less selling, less storytelling. I just think that pro wrestling, these guys should go back to the way it was. Start doing some chain wrestling and certain techniques to make it basic, because that’s the art of the sport.

“It’s telling the story, having the good guy outwrestle the bad guy at the beginning, then having the bad guy cut the good guy down and get heat on him, and then have the good guy make the comeback and you have the finish. Does the bad guy cheat and win, or does the good guy overcome and win? These are simple ways of doing it, and the thing is, now we got complicated. Now you don’t know who the babyface or the heel is.”
