Kurt Angle Says Undertaker Wanted Him To End The Streak At WrestleMania 22

Kurt Angle as WWF Champion

During a recent interview with WrestlingInc, former WWF Champion Kurt Angle talked about his time in WWE, his comedy character, facing The Undertaker and more.

Below are the highlights from the interview:

On Vince McMahon taking away his comedy character:
“Yeah, I liked doing the comedy, it was a lot of fun. That’s back when I really had a good time. Vince put an end to it. He thought that fans needed to take me more seriously. I didn’t think they needed to take me more seriously, I was a Gold medalist. Vince wanted the comedy to be out. I didn’t agree, but I did what he said.”

On Undertaker wanting him to end the Streak:
“I was champion in 2006 and Undertaker approached me and said he wanted to face me at WrestleMania. Until then, Undertaker didn’t have a WrestleMania moment with a five star match. He thought he could have that with me, and he was considering possibly losing as long as he had that moment he wanted, and I don’t blame him. Vince said no way, and I agreed with Vince.

I don’t think Undertaker should ever have lost at WrestleMania, I think he should have been undefeated forever. They made their choice, and if you’re going to do it with anybody, do it with Brock Lesnar, because he’s as legit as it gets. Me and Undertaker ended up having our match at No Way Out 2006. If you ever see that match, it was definitely a WrestleMania type of match.”
