On a special ‘Ask Kurt Anything’ edition of The Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle and Conrad Thompson discussed the G.O.A.T’s of wrestling.
During the conversation with Conrad, the Olympic Gold Medalist, and WWE Hall of Famer revealed who he believes is the “greatest wrestler of all time”. Angle told listeners:
"It is Bret Hart because I believe that he is the greatest wrestler of all time. I believe that his in-ring performance, there is nobody better. I would say Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit are close, even myself, but I still put Bret up there. Don't get me wrong”
Angle also mentioned that the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair should be near the top of the list, and explained why in the end, Hart is “the best overall technician. The former King of the Ring winner explained:
"A Ric Flair needs to be up there too because he is the man and his technique was far superior, but he was, you know, he did a lot of, Ric was a great wrestler that could help people get interested in the psychology of the match, but he was also very entertaining. He took a lot of crazy Ric Flair bumps. The forward bump. The bump off the top of the rope. You know, it was pretty, you knew what he was going to do, and you'd want him to do it. So, he was different in his technique. Bret hart was just the best overall technician I have ever seen in my life”
