Kurt Angle: There's A Lot Of Pressure On WWE Champions
Angle has held multiple World Championships in WWE
Kurt Angle has opened up on the pressures on WWE's top champion.
A four-time WWE Champion, former World Heavyweight Champion and former WCW Champion, Angle knows only too well how difficult it can be to sit atop the WWE mountain, recounting how he was expected to compete at least 20 minutes every evening on every show.
Speaking during The Kurt Angle Show, he said: "You have to be on every night. You're gonna wrestle between 20 to 30 minutes, whether it's a house show, TV, a pay-per-view, you're gonna stay busy. And you're carrying the company on your shoulders. So it's a big responsibility, and you have to be ready for it.
"There is a lot of pressure because you're expected to draw now. You're the one that's selling the tickets. The main one that's selling the tickets in the pay-per-view buys. So you know, you know that in your mind. And you have other talent that's up there upper-tier talent, it also, you know, help sell tickets. But, you know, from a champion standpoint, that's your job."
