Kurt Angle Reflects On Rey Mysterio's In-Ring Style, Vince McMahon's Treatment Of WCW Stars In WWE


Kurt Angle recently appeared as a guest on KXST 1140 The Bet out of Las Vegas, Nevada for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the WWE and IMPACT Wrestling Hall Of Fame legend spoke about how Vince McMahon was never going to let a talent recognized as a WCW performer get a win over a homegrown WWE Superstar.

Additionally, the former Olympic gold medalist touched on the #MonthOfMysterio tribute during July and reminisced about Rey Mysterio's in-ring style, noting he always gave the impression that he could win any match that he was in.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On how Vince McMahon wasn’t going to let a WCW guy win over a homegrown WWE talent: “I think that Vince (McMahon), you have to remember, you come from another company. You didn’t choose WWE, you chose WCW. You come in, you think Vince is actually gonna have me put that guy over, one of his WWE homegrown talents? Hell no. Of course Rey was going to lose. At that particular time, I was one of the top guys in the company. I think Vince gave him a good opponent to utilize for his debut match. Of course, he lost, but it didn’t hurt his career, it actually helped.”

On how Rey Mysterio gives the impression that he can win any match that he’s in: “The thing with Rey is that he’s always been beatable, but he also has been able to beat anybody at any particular time. That’s what makes it so exciting about watching Rey Mysterio wrestle. He could beat the Big Show, he’s gonna have to sneak a win on him, but he’s the most exciting kid in the world to watch wrestle. For the most part, if he’s going to wrestle Big Show, he’s going to lose to him, but there’s a chance he could win. That’s what the fans believe in. That Rey Mysterio always has a chance.”
