Kurt Angle: Vince Russo is the unsung hero of TNA

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer and TNA legend Kurt Angle recently discussed how he believes that Vince Russo is the “unsung hero” of Total Nonstop Action.

Angle answered a ton of questions during a recent episode of his podcast, including one from a fan who asked who he sees as an unsung hero.

‘The unsung hero that I think? I love Vince Russo. I don’t know how fans think about him or how they feel about him, but Vince was very talented” Kurt Angle began.

“The success he had in WWE was phenomenal, The Attitude Era. When he went to WCW, the problem was he was writing for the wrestlers and they were like, ’˜I’m not doing that'” Angle continued.

“‘I’m going to do whatever I want’, so his storylines turned into something else because the wrestlers turned it into whatever they wanted and so it got diluted” Angle concluded.
