Default Would You Say Kurt Angle Is The Greatest Professional Wrestler On This Planet?

I've seen many questions as of late asking who is the better wrestler between Kurt Angle and another wrestler. Would you say he is the greatest wrestler currently in professional wrestling?































?...Star...?

I would say so. He's athletic and a good superstar.































Fine, I'll star.

He is more athletic than any other pro wrestler, he proves this by his amateur background. The conditioning and wrestling education he gained as an amateur is better than any current wrestler. He was world champ in 95 and gold medal 96. Kurt cuts excellent promos, he is entertaining and he will assist in putting over young wrestlers. Kurt has won almost every major title in the WWF/E and held the TNA world title 3 times.































I think Kurt has made more of an impression on pro wrestling than Hogan and Rock. Therefore Kurt Angle is the greatest.

Kurt Angle is not the best pro wrestler in the world. He has not conquered the indy scene or the top stars of Mexico....and his matches in TNA are far from 4 star affairs. The best in USA are still the wrestlers currently in ROH.

No.































First, as Dark Demon said, there are better wrestlers than Kurt Angle.































Secondly, Kurt Angle lacks something crucial in my opinion. He lacks in-ring psychology. Most submission wrestlers focus on a particular body part of his/her opponents. Kurt Angle doesn't work over the leg of his opponents at all and he just applies the Ankle Lock. In a match, I usually see skilled submission wrestlers all pin point their attacks on a particular body part, which would lead to them using a submission finisher on that body part. That's the kind of in-ring psychology Kurt Angle lacks in my view. The last time I remember Kurt Angle actually using in-ring psychology was his match against The Undertaker at No Way Out in 2006.































I also feel that Kurt Angle lacks storytelling as well. He doesn't really time his moves to tell a story inside the ring. I feel like he just executes a German Suplex here, a Belly-to-Belly suplex there, etc.































Kurt Angle is still a superb mat wrestler and has had a ton of classics under his name, but lacks in-ring psychology and storytelling in matches is what prevents me from calling him the greatest professional wrestler on the planet.

He's a really good wrestler though. I don't think best in the world.
