Jason Jordan recently took part in a conference call to promote the WWE’s upcoming European tour. During the call, Jordan was asked if Kurt Angle was an influence on him. Here is what he had to say:
“I grew up watching Kurt and so I’ve studied him a lot and figured out what it is that made him so great, what made him so amazing to watch. So trying to make sure that I picked up some of those things, but at the same time being myself, because I never wanna try and mimic somebody else. I wanna be myself and be the first Jason Jordan. I don’t wanna be the second Kurt Angle.
“And it’s the same concept where we always get a lot of comparisons to the World’s Greatest Tag Team. We wanna be the first American Alpha. We don’t wanna be the second Team Angle or World’s Greatest Tag Team. We’ve worked so hard to get to where we are, and we feel like we’re unique and different. Yes there are similarities but we’re still different. As much as we look to Kurt, and as much as I’ve studied him and been a fan of Kurt Angle’s, he’s been an influence, but it’s nice to have a little bit of a separation between us.”
