Kurt Angles Comments On His Worst WWE Match, Brock Lesnar's Shooting Star Press At WrestleMania.
Updated: Aug 14
Former multiple time WWE Champion Kurt Angle did a Q&A Session on Facebook yesterday, here are some highlights.
Angle speaks on his worst match in the WWE.
"I never had a bad match...LOL. The one that I remember was the Lumberjack Match with Eddie Guerrero [on an episode of SmackDown]. Eddie wasn't feeling well that night. The match dragged on and on. Eddie kept telling me something was wrong. He kept telling me to put him in a hold so he could get his mind and body straight. It was not the Eddie that we all knew, 'the greatest of all-time.' He was physically and emotionally exhausted that night. It was a failure on my part because I kept pushing him to go harder, I should have listened to him. Eddie was more to me than a fellow wrestler, he was my brother. It was a bad night for him. And a bad night for me."
Angle comments on if anything was said, after Brock Lesnar's botched Shooting Star Press at WrestleMania XIX.
"Well, it was my idea to do the shooting star...Brock misjudged the flip and landed on his head. It was a scary moment. But nothing was said between us about it. The match spoke for itself regardless of the failed flip. If anything, it became one of the most popular WrestleMania moments."
Angle shares his thoughts on if wrestlers from 205 Live should integrate into RAW and SmackDown more often.
"Yes. I think we should highlight each one for a month. So, every month have a different 205 [Live] Superstar wrestle the top heavyweights on Raw and SmackDown. See which one the fans really get behind and push that wrestler into Superstar mode. Then you have the next Rey Mysterio. It's worth a shot, you never know. Just an idea."
