Kurt Angle is one of the greatest performers in wrestling history but even he has dream matches. He recently named Kenny Omega as his current dream opponent, but what about the legends of the past?
“Okay, let me see. This is a little weird. [From] the past, I would say Bret Hart, Owen Hart, I would have loved to wrestle Andre The Giant. I know there wouldn’t have been much offense for my aspect, for my part, I know he would have been throwing me around like a rag doll, but it would be a lot of fun wrestling Andre. Anybody would want to wrestle Andre, why not? He’s 7 feet tall, 500 pounds, he’s a beast.
I would say Iron Sheik just for the pure entertainment of it. The guy is freaking crazy, I absolutely love him and, you know what, this is a hard one but you’re going to understand why. I would say, Bob Backlund. Because he was a former amateur wrestler, a national champion, and I think we would have had a really solid match.”
Kurt Angle joined WWE in 1999, after all five aforementioned legends had left WWE or passed away.
