Former WWE Superstar Charlie Haas has a lot of fond memories from his time with Team Angle on WWE SmackDown, but he does feel like the stable could have done more in the long run.

Charlie Haas was the latest guest on INSIGHT with Chris Van Vliet to discuss his WWE career. When talking about the Team Angle faction, Haas believes that the group was split up way too soon:

“It should have been longer,” Haas admitted. “What people don’t understand is at the time that we were getting hot on Team Angle [on SmackDown], who was getting hot on Raw, and that was Evolution. But when they have 4 guys and you have 3, when they do the mixed pay-per-views, we are starting to get a better reaction than them. I don’t care what they say, you can ask Kurt that, Shelton may not say because he is with WWE now, but we were getting a better reaction than they were. And I think that had a lot to do with ok it’s time to split them, because they kept Evolution going. That’s just the way it is.”

Charlie Haas went on to reveal after the Team Angle split that he had trouble finding his character due to the fact that he was always used to being a tag team wrestler:

“I’ll be honest with you man, I was lost. I was always a tag team wrestler, I was never a singles wrestler,” Haas said. “Then all of a sudden, who is Charlie Haas? I had a really great match with RVD and a great match with Rico, and they put me with Rico, and we won the tag titles there. That was tough because I loved the character and I loved working with Rico, but other tag teams refused to work with us because they didn’t want to be in the ring with Rico because of the character. It hurt him a lot and I knew he was upset about that, and some of them took it out on him in the ring physically when they had to, it was uncalled for with some of the stuff that he went through. I think today he is suffering through concussions and all that stuff, he is having some mental issues right now. But we had a great tag team, we won the tag team titles, that was really cool.”

Kurt Angle recently looked back on another part of his career and explained how his infamous King Of The Ring match with Shane McMahon was booked; read his comments about putting Shane through the plexiglass stage at this link.
