Kurt Angle: Vince McMahon 'Absolutely Loves' Abyss
Kurt Angle has revealed that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon 'absolutely loves' Abyss.
Abyss worked in TNA alongside Angle, facing off against the Olympic Gold Medallist on multiple occasions. The 48-year-old departed IMPACT in 2019 and has since worked with WWE as a producer.
Reports have circulated for years that WWE were keen to bring in Joseph 'Abyss' Parks for a feud with The Undertaker and Angle says McMahon 'loves' the producer.
Speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, he said: "Abyss was very talented. One of the best big guys I’ve ever wrestled.
"I felt that he relied a little bit too much on the hardcore stuff, the weapons. He didn’t need that. I told him continuously, ‘You don’t need to do that because your wrestling is outstanding.’ He felt that people identified him with the hardcore stuff. I understand why he did it, but he didn’t have to. I had to talk him out of a couple hardcore spots in the match, but I do believe we used tacs in the match from what I remember.
"He’s a great producer (now in WWE). Vince McMahon absolutely loves the guy."
