On an August 2003 episode of ‘WWE SmackDown!’, ‘The Next Big Thing’ Brock Lesnar absolutely destroyed Zach Gowen and further brutalized him in front of Zach’s mother.

During a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, our Olympic Hero spoke about that uneven battle.

Here’s what Kurt Angle said:

“It was a really serious a**-kicking. Yeah. I honestly believe that it went a lot further, than just having Brock beat him up.

I think that it was sending a message to Zach. Yeah. And that message was heard loud and clear.

So this helped dramatically, him doing this to Zach. Because, I mean, this kid was a really good wrestler.

He only had one leg. He was unbelievable with the fans. Yeah. And, when Brock did that to him, that definitely gave him heat.

Brock’s the most powerful, explosive person I’ve ever been in the ring with.

Oh, it’s no doubt Amateur or pro wrestling or even football, bro, is the strongest, most powerful, explosive person I’ve ever been in the ring with.

And when you’re in there with him, you better be ready because you’re gonna get thrown around.”

Zach Gowen had his left leg amputated at the young age of 8 and became the only one-legged professional wrestler to ever make it to the WWE.

He wrestled for them between May and October of 2003, but also had a few matches for Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) in 2003, 2005 & 2006.
