• “I can pretty much guarantee The Undertaker will admit that” – Kurt Angle On Their 2006 PPV Match
The No Way Out 2006 match between The Undertaker and Kurt Angle for the World Heavyweight Championship completed 16 years a few days ago.
On his podcast, Angle talked about this match and had the following to say:
“We had that textbook wrestling match. This match at No Way Out really did have all the ingredients in it to be a perfect match. There was a lot of wrestling, a lot of submission tradeoffs, a lot of false finishes. The match told an incredible story.
I can genuinely say that it was one of the best matches of my career, one of the best matches of The Undertaker’s career. I can pretty much guarantee The Undertaker will admit that.
We wanted this match at WrestleMania, but unfortunately, we didn’t get it.”
Kurt Angle managed to pin The Undertaker in this match to retain the World Title.
