WWE legend Kurt Angle has stated that Samoa Joe is one of the best wrestlers he’s ever got in the ring with.

The duo had several feuds in TNA (now known as IMPACT Wrestling), with the Olympic gold medalist’s very first feud in the promotion coming against Joe. The two stars, along with AJ Styles, were some of the biggest draws in the company. Angle faced the current NXT star in WWE in the final few matches of his in-ring career.

During his recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho, Angle praised Joe for his athleticism and technical prowess.

“Joe was really physical, he was technical. One of the best athletes I’ve ever been in the ring with, and that’s saying a lot considering Joe’s a bigger guy. He’s a 300-pounder, doesn’t look like a bodybuilder by any means, but, man, he could go. This guy is one of the best wrestlers I’ve got in the ring with,” Angle said.

Angle also stated that he wasn’t keen on entering a feud with Joe right after joining IMPACT as he felt that the storyline needed to be built up. IMPACT, though, wanted the Joe-Angle rivalry right off the bat to get more pay-per-view buys.

WWE star Samoa Joe on the difference between Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar

Samoa Joe believes that Angle and Lesnar are similar in many ways but stated that the former is a slick operator, while the latter has power.

“Kurt is an efficient cougar, efficient panther. He’s a feline predator. You know, like a quick kill, real slick. Brock is just a rampaging bull. He’s just the juggernaut. He runs straight through things you know. What he cannot out technique, he with outpower,” said the former NXT Champion.

Goodness gracious, @SamoaJoe & @BrockLesnar locked horns 4 years ago today at @WWE Great Balls of Fire!πŸ’₯
