'He could be considered to be one of the greatest' - Chad Gable on Kurt Angle

The star wrestler claimed Kurt to be one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Gable said that Angle had everything in him to be regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers in history. However, Gable added that the comparison by the fans between him and Kurt never bothered him. He considered himself lucky to be compared with someone like Angle.

"He could be considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, especially the guy that crossed over, pro wrestler of all time. Athletically, character-wise, entertainment-wise, everything, he had it. The comparisons never bother me. If it was to someone else or someone I didn't myself in, it'd be different, but how could you be bothered? What a compliment, and it always has been.”
