In an interview with the New York Post, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle talked on a variety of topics. Of particular note to iMPACT Wrestling and WWE fans are his comments regarding how he feels disrespected by the WWE entertainers. Angle specifically cited Randy Orton and Jack Swagger as two guys who disrespect him by copying his moves while he is still an active wrestler. Here is the text of Angle’s comments to the New York Post:
When Jack Swagger copies my ankle lock and Randy Orton does my Angle Slam, it’s disrespectful. I didn’t come up with the Ankle Lock, Ken Shamrock came up with the Ankle Lock but I waited until he retired to do the Ankle Lock. That company has no respect for me.
Angle went on to comment that he was best friends with Vince McMahon, but he is now loyal to Dixie Carter. Here is his quote on that topic:
I love Vince McMahon. He came up with the Kurt Angle character. He ran with it and then I was able to run with it. I thank him for the opportunity he gave me. Vince McMahon was one of my best friends, period. Now I’m loyal to Dixie Carter.
