WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently hosted a Q&A session on his official Facebook account, and during the Q&A, he put over NXT Superstar The Velveteen Dream, and he talked about possibly retiring in the future. When asked about who he would like to face in his final wrestling match, Angle said that there are a ton of talented individuals in the company right now. However, he would either face Seth Rollins or Daniel Bryan at the moment. Angle has not wrestled either of these men in his career, so it would be interesting to see these two matches take place at some point down the line. Kurt Angle submitted to rising WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre in his last match on WWE programming a few weeks ago.
“AJ [Styles] or [Samoa] Joe or [Seth]
Rollins or [Daniel] Bryan. Then you have Sheamus and Cesaro. [Baron]
Corbin. [Chad] Gable and [Jason] Jordan. I’d have to go with either
Rollins or Bryan. Only because I’ve never wrestled them and I’ve had my
eye on them for 5 years.” Angle said.
Eric Bischoff is often credited for taking WWE to the limit when he helped WCW Monday Nitro compete against Monday Night Raw in the late 90s. Bischoff is certainly knowledgeable when it comes to business, and his mind is still at work today. Bischoff did his very own TED Talk not too long ago wherein he competed the pro wrestling business to the news media. Bischoff says that news stations, much like pro wrestling shows, choose to get a certain feeling out of their viewers in order to keep them coming back for more. This would not only increase ratings, but it also brings in more revenue for the stations. Eric Bischoff’s intriguing take can be heard in his speech, which has been posted right down below:
A ton of guest trainers have been coming into the WWE Performance Center lately to help coach some of the aspiring rookies in the NXT system. It was reported earlier this week that Shane “Hurricane” Helms is in Orlando right now to offer his own advice. It looks like Helms is coming in right after Mike Quackenbush, who just wrapped up his stint at a trainer at the PC. The in-ring veteran had also been helping Raw Superstar Alexa Bliss resume training and recover from her injuries over the past few days. Quackenbush took to social media yesterday to thank the company and all of the NXT Superstars for allowing him to come into the training facility with open arms and spread his insight on the wrestling industry to the young WWE hopefuls.
Thank you to everyone at @WWENXT and the @WWEPC for making me feel so welcome! I relish the challenges, and I’ll cherish the adventures from a whirlwind week with all of you. I love the work & I love to teach, but I also learned so much being part of your team. pic.twitter.com/9lmdPKPk1D
