WWF Legend Kurt Angle was interviewed by Chris Jericho on the ‘Talk Is Jericho’ podcast, where Angle talked about a backstage fight he had with Eddie Guerrero back in 2004 after a segment on SmackDown.

Here’s what the 2017 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:

“What happened was we had a fight in the ring. We are getting heat on Eddie. It was Luther Reigns, Mark Jindrak, and myself. I didn’t touch Eddie, so I couldn’t have been the one that stiffed him. Mark Jindrak and Luther Reigns were getting heat on Eddie and when I got backstage, Eddie came back.

After the show, we all wait in Gorilla and shake each other’s hands. I went to shake his hand and say, ‘thank you, Eddie’. He goes, ‘no, no. What you did out there was wrong. You were stiffing me’. I said, ‘Eddie, I didn’t touch you.’ He said, ‘bullsh*t. You were stiffing me, you were beating me up’. I pushed him. I didn’t know what to do, he made me so mad so I pushed him.

He double legs me, an amateur wrestling double leg. I get him down and got him in a front headlock and I started choking him out. So, Big Show comes in, and this is embarrassing, talk about having little guy syndrome.

Big Show grabs me by the back of my singlet, pulls me up and puts me in one corner, takes Eddie, puts Eddie in another corner. He says, ‘you guys are done.’ Now I’m pissed at Big Show, I said, ‘don’t you ever touch me like that again.’ Big Show was so damn strong, he lifted me up with one hand and my legs were kicking.

We get backstage and I felt bad. So, I go to Eddie’s locker room to apologize. I get back there and I knock on the door. He opens the door and doesn’t say anything. I said, ‘Eddie, listen. I just want to say I’m sorry’. You know what Eddie said to me? ‘I’m not ready yet’.

So, I go inside and I started whacking him. I’m fighting Eddie, we are throwing punches. Bradshaw pulled us apart and is like, ‘guys, you’ve got to stop’. I’m like, ‘well, I said I was sorry and this arsehole doesn’t want to say he’s sorry back’. But that’s Eddie.

Eddie is going to apologize when he wants to and I should have known that.”

Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle feuded for most of 2004, with their biggest matches taking place at the WrestleMania XX and SummerSlam 2004 PPVs.
