Kurt Angle Loved Working With Nigel McGuinness In TNA



Kurt Angle worked with some of the top names in TNA and had a blast working with current AEW commentator Nigel McGuinness.

On a recent edition of his “The Kurt Angle Show” podcast, the Olympian recalled working with McGuinness, who competed as Desmond Wolfe in TNA. He said,

“I loved working with him. He was so good technically, actually too good. He was such a great chain wrestler, what he forgot is some psychology. I’ll give you an example. He was a heel, I was wrestling him as a baby face, and he would be chain wrestling me. We would go back and forth, and he would put me in something and put a lock on it so I couldn’t reverse it. I’m like, ‘What are you doing Desmond? I’m the babyface. I’m supposed to out-wrestle you. You have to give me an opening.’

“And he wasn’t quite understanding it, but after a while, he started picking it up. He was like, ‘Oh okay, I got you. I’m the one that needs to be out-wrestled. You need to be the better technician because you’re the baby face.’ I said, ‘Exactly.”’

One of the pair’s more iconic TNA matches was the ‘Three Degrees of Pain’ match, a two-out-of-three falls match where the third fall had to be by escaping a steel cage.

Wolfe would retire from wrestling in 2011 due to medical issues. He would later work with WWE as part of NXT UK before joining AEW/ROH.
