Triple H and Kurt Angle went to war throughout the early 2000’s while both were at the peak of their powers. The pair traded wins on some of WWE’s biggest stages as they became two of the biggest stars in the wrestling industry.
The two WWE Hall of Famers last wrestled at WrestleMania 33 when Angle teamed with Ronda Rousey to defeat The Game and Stephanie McMahon. The two men have always held enormous respect for each other, something which still exists today.
Kurt Angle Praises Triple H
Speaking on a recent episode of his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, Angle was asked who has the best wrestling mind today, and who did in previous generations. The former World Champion singled out Triple H from the present day, while also tipping his hat to Hulk Hogan.
“For me personally, Triple H. He’s always had it. Not just from a wrestling standpoint, but from a creative standpoint, from a psychology standpoint, from a promo standpoint. Triple H is one guy that is well-educated, he loves pro wrestling like it’s his wife [laughs]. He cherishes it, and he’s really good at it. He has a great mind for it. In the past, I would say somebody like Hulk Hogan, who was able to bring the fans in at a time where wrestling was not so hot, but Hulkamania actually made wrestling so much bigger. He has a great mind for the business as well. I worked with Hulk Hogan, and he definitely is well-educated with the wrestling aspect,”
Although he hung up his boots back in 2019, Kurt Angle continues to make occasional appearances on WWE television. The star most recently appeared on the December 9th edition of SmackDown where he recreated the famous milk truck segment with Steve Austin from 2001.
