WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently took to his podcast, “The Kurt Angle Show,” to talk about several professional wrestling topics including his time working with Sting, why TNA had so many ref bumps, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On working with Sting:
“Sting was awesome. He was one of the nicest guys in the world. He was very professional, not political by any means, and never put down any wrestler. He was a really good guy and a great wrestler. I enjoyed working with him all the time.”
On why TNA had so many ref bumps:
“The problem was the wrestlers would structure the matches and they would present the matches to the agents. The agents wouldn’t hear everything in the match. They would just hear, ‘I’m going to shine, there’s the heat, there’s the comeback, and this is the finish.’
They wouldn’t tell the agents they had ref bumps, so there were a lot of ref bumps, more than what should have been done on each show. There should be one per show, but in TNA there would be two or three, maybe even sometimes four, which is ridiculous.”
