• Kurt Angle Reveals Who Were His Dream Match Opponents
During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle was asked about his dream matches.
Here’s what our Olympic Hero replied:
“I always wanted to work with Dolph [Ziggler]. From the beginning when I came back to WWE, he was on my radar. The kid is such a special talent, he can do just about anything and I think that his size really helps him. He’s a little bit smaller, so he’s able to do a lot more.
But I’ve always loved his work. I’ve been a big fan of him since he started and I would have loved to have a match with him. He wasn’t my dream match per se, Daniel Bryan was, or Bret Hart.”
Angle actually faced Ziggler in a singles match at the WWE Crown Jewel 2018 pay-per-view, where Ziggler defeated him in a WWE World Cup Quarterfinal match.
Kurt retired from professional wrestling after his loss to Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 in 2019.
