Kurt Angle Says 2003 Was A Really Good Year For Him In The WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently took to an episode of his The Kurt Angle Show podcast, where he spoke about a variety of topics such as how not headlining the 2003 WWE SummerSlam Event was a really hard pill to swallow, but he understands that he and “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar already main-evented WrestleMania and the company had a Hell in a Cell Match on the card that needed to be last.

Kurt Angle said:

“That was a hard pill to swallow, but I do understand; I mean, Brock and I, the main event at WrestleMania, and not only that, but you have a hell in a cell match, having a hell in a cell match in the middle of the show, then you have to tear down the cage, and it’s just a pain in the ass. So you wanna do it at the very end and set it up and just, you know, and then you can tear it down. You could take as long as you want to tear it down afterward. So I believe that’s the reason why they had the hell in the cell last.”

Kurt Angle also spoke about his 2003 run in the WWE and how he believes it was a really good year for him, but it was also a year where he got injured a couple of times so it wasn’t his best year.

Kurt Angle said:

“I thought 2003 was a really good year for me, but it was also a year where I got injured a couple of times, with my neck. one was right before WrestleMania, and one was at the end of the year in November. So, you know, a good four months of my career was shot. I didn’t wrestle four months of that or 12 months during that year. So it wasn’t my best year. I mean, I won two world titles, but I wouldn’t call it my best-performing year. I think that 2006 and 2005 might’ve been better.”

Kurt Angle also spoke about he actually thinks Brock Lesnar was better as a heel.

Kurt Angle said:

“I actually think Brock was better as a heel. He’s a big giant individual. He’s explosive. He has this mean demeanor about him and, just his look, I think, you know, he looks at him, he looks like a German soldier. Okay. He does; he’s what Hitler imagined, that every human being should look like this person right here. Brock Lesnar, tall, blonde, blue eyes. This was, you know, exactly, you know, a buzz call. He’s a beast. He’s a freak of nature. And that’s Brock Lesnar.”

Kurt Angle then spoke about how he likes his matchup with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 19 better than his 2003 WWE SummerSlam Match.

Kurt Angle said:

“I enjoyed ’em both equally as much. That is tough. I think that, um, I still liked WrestleMania and, and you know what, I’m, I’m not gonna lie to you. I don’t remember a lot of WrestleMania ’cause my neck was broken, and I knew I hadn’t had surgery, and I was really stressed out about being in that ring. But for some reason, when I watch it over, I just like WrestleMania better.”
