Let’s Say Nice Things About... Kurt Angle

In an effort to bring some positivity to professional wrestling—and the world for that matter—Cageside Seats and its community will say nice things about people and things in wrestling every single day throughout 2017.

A reminder of the rules: only positivity allowed here. No back-handed compliments, and CERTAINLY NO NEGATIVITY. If you don’t have something nice to say, keep it to yourself, or take it elsewhere. Negative comments will be deleted and you may be subjected to a ban. Cool? Cool.

Today’s subject: USA Wrestling, TNA, and soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle.

I’ll start: From the second Angle burst on the scene in late 1999, I knew he was going to be something special. But to turn out to be one of the great wrestlers and characters of all time in wrestling is something else. I mean, not many people can flip the switch from comedic foil to serious wrestling machine badass and not lose credibility.

Plus that whole winning a gold medal with a broken freaking neck... I mean, that’s pretty cool too.

Your turn. Say something nice about Kurt Angle.

And if you have a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”, hit me up on Twitter @notoriouseddie. I promise I won’t bite.
