WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle is undoubtedly one of the most gifted pro wrestlers to have ever graced the squared circle. During his time in WWE he has made close friends with Superstars, but also was involved in a few backstage fights.
Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle were good friends in real life, but it seems they were engaged in a backstage fight as well. While speaking to The Hannibal TV, Kurt Angle talked about legitimately choking out Eddie Guerrero in a backstage fight.
The incident was said to have taken place after an in-ring segment on WWE SmackDown, where Angle, Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak attacked Eddie Guerrero.
“We were in the ring and we had to get heat on him in the ring. That means beat him up. My gang of guys, that means Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak and myself, I didn’t touch Eddie but they did. I guess they laid into him pretty hard and he came backstage, he was mad and he approached me and said, “Why did you lay into me like that? You beat the cr*p out of me.” He actually used a lot more swear words *laughs* and I said “Eddie, I didn’t touch you” and he said I did and he pushed me. I said “Don’t push me again” and I pushed him back. He tried to double-leg me and it wasn’t that hard to fight him off, me being an amateur wrestler. It was pretty easy and I put him in a chokehold and started choking him out and then Big Show broke it up, thank god, because I loved Eddie and I didn’t want to fight Eddie.”
Thankfully, the fight was broken up by the Big Show. Angle was fired from WWE last year as part of the COVID-19 budget cuts, but it seems we might be seeing him return to the company eventually.
