Former ROH Champion Nigel McGuinness praised TNA star Kurt Angle in a UK Sun interview. "Kurt was so great, so gracious," said McGuinness, who wrestled as Desmond Wolfe in TNA. "I’ve always said that you meet so many guys in wrestling that have an ego, and it’s always because they never got the spot they thought they should get.

"The guys who do get those spots and who are really good – and Angle is the best of my generation – have no ego whatsoever because they are perfectly comfortable. We were doing a tour of Europe and he came up to me and said: ‘Whatever you want to do tonight, you’re in charge.’ And this is Kurt Angle! It really was one of the highlights of my career, and life, to get to that stage.

"Before one of TNA’s big events he said to me that I was one of the best wrestlers he’d been in the ring with since Eddie Guerrero. I just thought ‘that’s bullshit, he must say that to everybody’, and maybe he does. But it was so touching and moving." Read the full interview at
