On the latest edition of his Kurt Angle Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle named former teammate Christian Cage as the “most underrated wrestler of all time”.
Kurt Angle is a multiple time world champion and respected as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. His career spanned two decades and two companies, winning championships in both WWE and TNA. In both of these promotions he shared the ring with Christian Cage, who was known as Christian in the WWE.
On the latest edition of his podcast, Kurt Angle revealed why he thinks that Christian is the most underrated wrestler in history. He thinks that he is one of the best in the world but was always stuck in the shadow of Edge, with Vince McMahon viewing the Rated R Superstar as the true star of their tag team.
“(Christian Cage) is the most underrated wrestler of all time. He never gets the credit that he deserves. He’s a superstar, don’t get me wrong. But he’s always been in the shadow of Edge and he’s actually just as good as Edge, and he’s actually better than all of us at putting matches together.”
“He comes up with incredible spots and incredible ideas. The kid is so creative and he goes out on the mat and backs it up. He’s just an incredible wrestler.”
Despite being presented as the lesser of the tag team in WWE, Christian Cage managed to become a world champion in his own right multiple times. He can boast five world championships, including two World Heavyweight Championships in WWE and a further three in TNA/Impact Wrestling.
He currently wrestles in AEW although injuries suffered during his feud with Jungle Boy have put him on the shelf indefinitely. The 47 year old currently manages Luchasaurus and there is no timeline for his return to the ring in the immediate future.
