WWE Corridor of Famer, and Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle just lately pressed the file button on one other version of his podcast, the place he dished out credit score to Steve Bradley.
Kurt Angle and Conrad Thompson mentioned Bradley throughout The Kurt Angle Present, and the previous King of the Ring had sort phrases for Bradley. Kurt informed listeners:
“Steve is the rationale I turned so good so quick. After I tried out for WWE, he was there on the camp and so they glued me to his hip for six months. That’s all I did, was work with Steve and practice with Steve. He taught me every thing! And I knew he was going to make it massive, I knew he was going to be the subsequent Rob Van Dam, possibly even just a little extra, I assume, versatile, than Rob. So far as his promo abilities and every thing. Rob was good too, don’t get me fallacious, Rob is phenomenal. Steve was very, very proficient and I’m shocked he didn’t make it… I’m simply shocked and shocked Steve Bradley didn’t make it massive. He was the rationale I made it within the firm! I feel, along with his skills, folks would have completely liked him. He handed away, I feel, fourteen or fifteen years in the past. It’s unlucky”.
Conrad recalled the Corridor of Fame acceptance speech Kurt gave, the place he title dropped Bradley as one of many folks he wanted to thank. The primary ever Euro-continental Champion responded, and defined:
“I needed to thank him, particularly with him being up in heaven. Good Lord, I’m grateful for what he did for me”.
