In the main event of the Armageddon 2000 pay-per-view, Kurt Angle defeated Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, Triple H & Rikishi in a 6-man Hell in a Cell match to retain the WWF Championship.

This is considered one of the best Hell in a Cell matches of all time.

On his podcast, Angle revealed that he didn’t want to be a part of this match because he knew they’d have to do some high-risk stunts.

Here’s what the Olympic Gold Medalist said:

“I remember when Mick Foley got thrown off of it a few years earlier, and I knew that we were gonna have to do something as crazy as that and I didn’t want to be a part of it!

‘Who wants to do the crazy stunt?’ And I didn’t raise my hand. I believe Rikishi raised his hand and Triple H raised his hand.”

Rikishi got chokeslammed off the top of the cell by The Undertaker on to a truck during this match.

Speaking of Angle, WWF Veteran Koko B. Ware tried to recruit him to become a professional wrestler in 1987, but Angle (who was 18 years old at that time) turned him down.

Below is an old news piece:

Kurt Angle wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation / World Wrestling Entertainment during the Attitude Era and the Ruthless Aggression Era, from 1999 until he left in 2006 and joined Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA), where he performed till 2016.

The 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist then returned to WWE in 2017, got inducted into the Hall of Fame and worked for them till he officially retired in 2019.

His final match came at WrestleMania 35 against Baron Corbin, which he lost.
