Angle, of course, achieved pretty much everything there was to achieve in WWE.
He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017 and is a former four-time WWE Champion, a one-time WCW Champion, a one-time World Heavyweight Champion, a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion, and also held the European Championship, the Hardcore Championship and the Intercontinental Championship. He is also a former King of the Ring, winning the tournament in 2000.
“Vince didn’t like me as a babyface. Every time I ever turned babyface, it was only for a couple months. I think what it comes down to is I was one of the best wrestlers on the roster. I was one of the best wrestlers in the world. Vince just didn’t like me as a babyface because I was more effective as a heel. I started out as a heel. I would preach the three ‘I’s, but I wouldn’t actually back it up. I would do the opposite. I would do the lie, cheat, and steal like Eddie Guerrero, but I would say I had intensity, integrity, and intelligence. Vince liked that about me. I think I was a better wrestler as a heel because I could control the tempo of the match and I could start making other wrestlers. The wrestlers that made me like Undertaker, Austin, Stone Cold, Triple H, I became one of those ring leaders. It’s easier to work as a heel when you’re a ring leader than it is as a babyface. My job was to make other wrestlers and make them bigger than they were already. I did the best job I could, and that entails being the heel.”
Kurt went on to wrestle in TNA, of course, and was primarily a heel there too. His return to WWE, though, saw him treated as a legendary babyface, as his befitting his amazing career.News Now - Sport News
