Kurt Angle Talks The WWE Dark Match He Had With Owen Hart In 1999

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently made an appearance on an Inside The Ropes Live Event to discuss a variety of topics such as the non-televised dark match he had with WWE legend Owen Hart before a TV Taping on May 10th, 1999, which is just 12 days prior to Hart’s fatal accident at Over the Edge 1999.

Kurt Angle also spoke about how he had one of the best 15-minute matches in his entire career and how Owen made him build his confidence to a level that it never was before because Owen Hart carried Kurt Angle through this match and Owen doesn’t get enough credit for how good he was.

Kurt Angle said:

“Vince McMahon decided to have a dark match with Owen Hart and myself. At the time I had just started and I didn’t really know what I was doing. Owen said, ‘Don’t worry, I’ll call it in the ring’. I’m like ‘holy sh*t, don’t say that’ because I don’t know how to call it in the ring. He said ‘don’t worry, just listen to me and let me lead you’.”

“We had one of the best 15-minute matches and he made me build my confidence to a level that it never was before because he carried me through this match, and the match turned out to be a pretty damn good match. And I had just started a couple of months prior to that. So Owen Hart, he doesn’t get enough credit for how good he was. I think Bret gets most of the credit for being the best wrestler in the family, but Owen Hart was every bit as good as Bret Hart.”
