Kurt Angle Says He Would Be Down To Working A Cinematic Match

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently took to his The Kurt Angle Show podcast, where he discussed the Boneyard Match between fellow WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker and AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.

Kurt Angle said:

“What I loved about it is it was pre-recorded. I think that those guys — the sky was the limit with what they could do because every spot could have been filmed at different times. I think that was brilliant because, at the time, Undertaker was coming back, and he’s getting older… I think they did the right thing.”

Kurt Angle also discussed how he would be down to working a cinematic match.

Kurt Angle said:

“I could do that. I’d be game for that. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to do it every year, but if I’m going to do a match, I would want to pre-record it, and I would want each spot to come whenever I was ready to do it. There’s nothing wrong with doing matches like that, especially if you’re going to put them on TV.”

Kurt Angle then discussed how he still considers a cinematic match a wrestling match even though it’s a pre-recorded match and how it is still going to come across incredibly well despite a little bit of cheating taking place.

Kurt Angle said:

“I mean, having a match, where you just do it all in the ring, and you do it live in front of people. That’s one thing that’s really impressive. That’s the most impressive match you can have, but having a match where you have spot after spot, taped at different times you put it all together. It’s still a wrestling match. Now don’t get me wrong, you’re cheating a little bit, but it’s still going to come across incredibly well. That Undertaker/AJ match was awesome.”
