Angle is also a big advocate of Chad Gable, who will be competing in the finals of this year's King of the Ring tournament against Baron Corbin.
Angle recently advocated for Gable on social media, tweeting, "To me, Chad Gable was never an underdog. I knew early on how great he is, and was. He’s now getting the opportunity to prove how great he truly is. They say he’s the next Kurt Angle. He is not!!!! He’s Chad Gable, and he’s gonna win King of the Ring!!!!"
