Kurt Angle Looks Back On Beating Brock Lesnar In Japan

Kurt Angle is a bad man!

The WWE Hall of Fame legend and former Olympic gold medalist reflected on beating another bad man during a recent interview with Fightful.

While talking with the popular digital media outlet, the pro wrestling legend spoke about beating Brock Lesnar in Japan and how that came to be.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he shares the story.

“I had a good relationship with Brock. He actually told New Japan that he wasn’t gonna lose to anybody over there. If they wanted him to do a job, they would have to bring in Kurt Angle. That’s what I was told. So, I decided to do it because Brock wanted me to and I’m a good friend of his and there’s no shame in beating Brock Lesnar for a World title. So, I went ahead and did it. It actually gave me more business over in New Japan. I started doing matches, defending the title. I wrestled Yuji Nagata, which was an awesome match. Nakamura, Tanahashi. I lost the title, I think, to Nakamura. They went with him. He was their future and I completely understood it. But I was a transitional champion. I was there to get the title off of Brock and hand it over to Nakamura.”
