Kurt Angle Talks WWE And UFC Merging Together

Kurt Angle Talks WWE And UFC Merging Together – Kurt Angle is still in shock that WWE and UFC may be joining together following Endeavor’s merger with WWE.

The Olympic Hero spoke on this topic during the latest edition of his podcast, where he recalled the two company’s being at odds with each other prior due to them technically being competition to one another.

It’s crazy. One group owns both companies now. It’s ridiculous. It’s crazy because when you were wrestling, you weren’t allowed to dabble with UFC. When you were with the UFC, you weren’t allowed to dabble with WWE. If you did, they would turn you down because Dana White did not want anybody under contract to WWE that was in UFC.

Angle later adds that UFC and WWE can promote one another at events, which he considers a good thing.

So they felt they were competing, even though, honestly, they were not competing. One’s fighting and one’s sports entertainment, but for some reason, now, they’re together, which is crazy. You know what? They can help each other out, though. They could promote each other. It might be good.

Elsewhere in the pod, Angle gives his thoughts on Roman Reigns defeating Cody Rhodes in the WrestleMania 39 main event, a decision he believes was wrong.

I’m not going to beat up on Roman Reigns because he is the man he deserves to be. We’re in a time now where if you’re a champion for three years, that’s a little long. It’s just too long. Because we’re not in territories anymore. When you were in territories, you weren’t on TV every week. So fans had to come to see you at the arenas, and you’d only be in that city one day a week. So they only saw wrestling one day a week back then when they were champion for six, eight years. Now Roman Reigns has gone on; it looks like he’s gonna have to hold the title for another few years.

However, Angle believed the opportunity for the American Nightmare to be crowned was at Mania, adding that it would have catapulted him from superstar to megastar.

The thing is, he’s on TV every week, sometimes twice a week, and then you know, a pay-per-view every month. It’s just a lot. I don’t believe the ratings are gonna go down, but I do believe some people are going to lose interest because they’re not making other wrestlers. You know, Roman has an opportunity to make a wrestler, he could have made Cody into a megastar, which Cody is already a star, but he would have been a mega-star if he won at WrestleMania. That’s just my opinion.
