On the latest episode of the Kurt Angle Show, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle revealed why former WWE star Luther Reigns couldn’t go far in the wrestling business.
Reigns worked for WCW from 1997 through 1999 before performing for WWE from 2003 through 2005. He was introduced as Angle’s on-screen assistant while the latter was the SmackDown General Manager and Reigns was later paired with Mark Jindrak as a tag team.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On his experiences with Reigns: “He needed a lot more work. He was really green in the ring as far as microphone skills. He was incredible. He had a great look. Everything is going for him. He just couldn’t improve. And the problem was, I think he never really practiced. No, they would have practice sessions earlier in the day during the shows and fit. Finlay would lead the charge, and Luther never attended, and I think that’s where he needed to be every day. He just didn’t do it.”
On Reigns not living up to his potential: Yeah, I mean, yeah, time to get better. He had ways of getting better. Sure chose not to for some reason. And work, he could have made it. He could have been really big, to be honest with you. He just wasn’t. He was lazy.”
