Kurt Angle took a break from his “vacation” and held a Facebook Q&A with his fans on Friday.
One of the questions the Olympic gold medalist answered was about the worst match he’s been involved in during his storied career. The former World Heavyweight Champion doesn’t have many clunkers on his list, but he did drop a surprising name as his worst match:
“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.”
After that, Angle addressed his memorable encounter against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 19. The match began a series of unforgettable one-on-one encounters between two wrestlers in their primes.
However, the most memorable moment in the WrestleMania 19 match was arguably Lesnar’s botched Shooting Star Press, which Angle takes the blame for:
“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.”
Another question Angle answered is the situation regarding the 205 Live roster, and whether they should be integrated into Raw and Smackdown Live more:
“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.”
