EagleTribune interviewed TNA Champion Kurt Angle this week. One of the (few) notable parts of the interview was Kurt Angle reminiscing about defeating John Cena in Cena’s 1st televised WWE match:

“I remember he was really green,” Angle said about Cena’s first match. “He was really nervous that first night. My job that night was to make him look good. I was going to win, because I was the established guy and the company thought I needed to keep that momentum, but I wanted to make John look good. I set it up with him so I would win, but he would look better than me. He kicked out of my finisher, and I won with a quick pin.”

Kurt Angle went on by praising Cena, recognizing his natural ability and even his work ethic. “I knew John would be special. I give him a lot of credit; he works so hard at it. He’s a great kid, and when I worked him, we were on TV every week, but my job was to teach him, and he was a great learner. He’s one of the guys in the WWE I still really respect. I’m proud of him, and I’m proud to say I helped him a little bit.”
