• Kurt Angle Reveals How The WWE Fixed A Botched Spot Between Him & The Undertaker
During a recent episode of his podcast, Kurt Angle revealed that him and fellow WWF Legend The Undertaker once messed up an important high-spot during one of their matches.
Here’s what the 2017 WWE Hall Of Famer said:
“It was a wrestling match where I and The Undertaker were supposed to do a submission where Undertaker had a leg lock around my neck, and I had him pinned. And they wanted the referee to count the tap out and the pin at the same time. And we messed that up during the show.
So we had to wait till afterward and wait for all the crowd to leave the arena. And then we would put in some of the wrestlers and some of the employees in the corner of the arena. So we could do a camera angle and make it look like they were the fans.”
Kurt Angle wrestled The Undertaker in several big matches, including PPV bouts at Fully Loaded 2000, Survivor Series 2000 and No Way Out 2006.
