During a recent Q&A session on Facebook, WWE Hall of Famer and current Raw General Manager Kurt Angle answered a few wrestling related questions. Below are the highlights:
What was your reaction when they informed you that you were gonna beat The Rock for your first WWF Title at No Mercy 2000?
“It was a great feeling, but I wasn’t surprised. I knew it was coming. I think everybody saw it coming. The Rock was one of the best entertainers and he was exciting to work with. He also has a knack for having amazing matches, which ours was.”
What are your thoughts about AJ Styles? How did it feel to be in the ring with him and work with him?
“AJ is the best today. He’s the standard. He sets the bar very high. I had some of my best matches with AJ. Maybe one more?”
What is your favorite match that you had no involvement in?
“It’s not really “wrestling” but I was amazed at how well AJ vs Shane came out at WrestleMania 33. To realize Shane only gets in that ring once in awhile and the pressure AJ has to endure for keeping the bar high, it literally amazes me. It was FUN to watch. And that’s why we watch wrestling. Because it’s fun.”
How did you feel when you gave Orton the Ankle lock and broke his freakin’ Ankle?
“Well… I didn’t really break his ankle, but I knew Orton was special. Even in his beginning years. He had so much talent. I wish him and I could have locked horns later on in his prime. Well.. it can still happen.”
What are you thoughts on The Undertaker’s retirement and do you wish that you could have had that WrestleMania match with him?
“My opinion? He’s not done yet, but that’s my opinion. And to wrestle Taker at Mania? That’s a dream come true. Everybody wants Taker at Mania.”
