Angle did not hold back on praising his former rival in TNA/Impact Wrestling. The WWE Hall of Famer detailed how good Abyss was back inside the 6-sided ring.

Of course, not to forget his hardcore antics. Had Abyss been in ECW, the 2300 arena would’ve been an even crazier place to be in the 90s.

Angle 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.”
