Multiple time World Champion Kurt Angle has made some very bold claims about Charlotte Flair, including that she is one of the best wrestlers in the world, and that the women in wrestling right now are often better than the men.
Charlotte Flair has not exactly covered herself in glory lately, especially since the WWE Draft where she moved to SmackDown and had her ill-fated title exchange with ‘The Man’ Becky Lynch. Revelations since the match include that Lynch no longer talks to ‘The Queen’ despite them formerly being like best friends.
Speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, the WWE Hall Of Famer had plenty of praise for Flair as well as the women of wrestling in general.
From what I saw, Trish Stratus, Lita, Mickie James, Gail Kim. Recently today, Charlotte Flair, Bianca Belair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch. These girls are prime. I mean, they’re actually better than a lot of the guys. They really are. I think Charlotte Flair might be one of the absolute best wrestlers in the whole entire world, male or female.
That’s how good she is. These girls really stepped up. But I would say the best ever from today are the girls I mentioned, and the ones I mentioned from earlier in my career, that was in the past.
Charlotte Flair is set to step in the ring once again with Becky Lynch at Survivor Series, as Raw and SmackDown collide.
Kurt Angle has recently been rather vocal on certain ways wrestling could go, including name who could have ended up becoming members of Team Angle.
