WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently took to an episode of his Kurt Angle show podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including how he believes AEW/ROH announcer Nigel McGuinness was such a great chain wrestler.
Angle said, “He was so good. Technically. He was such a great chain wrestler. What he forgot is psychology. Some psychology. Like. I’ll give you an example. He was a heel. I was wrestling him as a babyface, and he would chain-wrestle me. We would go back and forth, and he would put me in something and put a lock on it so I couldn’t reverse it. And I’m like, ‘What are you doing, Desmond? I’m the babyface. I’m supposed to out-wrestle you. You have to give me an opening.’ And he wasn’t quite understanding it, but after a while, he started picking it up, and he was like, ‘Oh, okay, I got you. I’m the one that needs to be out-wrestled. I’m the one that you need to be the better technician because you’re the babyface.’ I said. ‘Exactly. So he finally got it, and we had some great matches, especially our cage match. We had a really, really good match. I really enjoyed wrestling, Desmond. I think we went three straight pay per views.”
Angle also talked about how McGuinness was a great announcer as well.
Angle said, “He’s great at it too. Yeah, he is really good.”
