Shawn Michaels Recalls Specifically Training To Face Kurt Angle

Shawn Michaels

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels discussed facing Kurt Angle in WWE and what he did to prepare for an athlete like him. Below is what HBK said:

“There has never been anybody that I got in the ring with that I felt I needed to specifically train for. There was never even a possibility that someone could have more gas in the tank than me, but Kurt was different. I confessed to myself that Kurt was that guy, and I knew that match had to live up to extremely high standards, so I made sure I prepared extra.”

Below is what HBK said about Angle returning to WWE with his Hall of Fame induction:

“Kurt is a WWE guy and his best stuff was on the WWE stage. That is absolutely not to take anything away from anything he’s done in any other places, but it’s nice that he can come back and get recognized for his contributions. I’m so amazed that he could go from this gold-winning Olympian and transition so flawlessly into our line of work. Nothing was out of the ballpark for him. He could wrestle, he could be silly, he could out-wrestle guys. Kurt adapted to the world of the WWE unlike anybody with his unbelievably legitimate credentials behind him.”
