Kurt Angle Reveals Why He Called Chris Jericho The Greatest Wrestler Of All Time


During a recent interview with Lucha Libre Online, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle addressed his recent comments where he called Chris Jericho the greatest wrestler of all time and why believes “Y2J” has surpassed WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels to take on the title of G.O.A.T.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his original comments about Jericho being the G.O.A.T: “Chris, I want to tell you this. I’ve always thought Shawn Michaels was the greatest of all time. And I’m not saying this to blow smoke up your ass, but what you’ve been able to accomplish in AEW, and how long you’ve been able to have this career, I think that you have taken over Shawn as the greatest of all time.”

On why Jericho is the G.O.A.T and what influenced his opinion: “What he’s been able to do with his characters, changing and innovating himself and being able to be as effective as he is in the business this late in his career, at 51, 52 years of age, and being in the business for over 30 years.”

“He’s put in a lot of time, a lot of effort, and he’s very talented. So, I put him up there with Shawn Michaels, but now, after being in AEW and doing the things he’s doing now, he has to be the greatest of all time, especially (for) the amount of years he put in.”
