A WWE Hall of Famer says he and The Undertaker didn’t need gimmicks to have good matches with each other.
The Undertaker has had a litany of great rivals throughout his illustrious career. From Mankind and Kane to Shawn Michaels and Triple H, some of his most memorable matches came against some of the all-time greats.
One WWE Hall of Famer who had their fair share of classics against Taker is Kurt Angle. The two men wrestled each other numerous times, but never in a one-on-one gimmick match.
During the latest episode of The Kurt Angle Show podcast, Angle was asked which of Undertaker’s signature gimmick matches would he want to face “The Deadman.” He answered:
“Undertaker and I don’t need gimmicks. Our matches are so good, technically, in the ring, with nothing else, just the two of us.”
“We had some of the greatest matches of all time. Don’t get me wrong, gimmick matches are great.”
“Fans love them, but I love wrestling guys like Undertaker, Chris Benoit, Shawn Michaels, and Stone Cold Steve Austin without having any gimmicks because you can prove that you can work with these guys and have amazing matches without all these gimmicks flying around everywhere.”
When asked if he would fight The Undertaker in a graveyard, The Olympic Gold Medalist replied:
“As long as it was a technical wrestling match in the graveyard. Yeah, we could do that.”
Despite having no interest in facing Taker in a gimmick match, Kurt Angle did reveal what type of match he would be willing to have following his retirement, which you can read here.
