'I Had To Forget Everything I Ever Learned' - Kurt Angle Gives WWE Advice To Gable Steveson
Steveson was surprisingly drafted to WWE Raw
Kurt Angle has told Gable Steveson to focus on learning how to show emotion when developing his WWE in-ring style.
Steveson, like Angle, won a Gold Medal in wrestling at the Olympic Games and, in similar fashion to the Hall Of Famer, will now transition into sports entertainment with WWE.
Angle has reflected on making the move over to WWE and says the biggest thing he had to learn was showing his emotions, having deliberately not to do so as an amateur wrestler.
Speaking to Jobbing Out, when asked if he had any words of advice for Gable Steveson, Angle said: "In amateur wrestling, you don’t show emotion... In pro wrestling, you have to show a lot of emotion. You have to show when you’re angry, you’re scared, p*ssed off, happy, excited. It crosses over to the fans, so I had to forget everything I ever learned.
"Especially my moves because I was very aggressive in amateur wrestling and I had to pull back a little bit and say, ‘Okay, let me give my body to the guys that are in the ring with me.’"
