WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has not returned to pro wrestling since his release, but that didn’t stop WWE from offering him role. Angle also revealed the exorbitant amount of money he’d need to wrestle one more match.

Kurt Angle had a tremendous career in WWE, spanning multiple World Title runs and incredible matches as he faced off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer.

Angle was also involved in many iconic matches during his career and that included the iconic WWE SummerSlam 2000 main event, where he faced off against The Rock and Triple H in a triple threat match for the WWE Championship.

While speaking on “The Kurt Angle Show” on AdFreeShows.com, Kurt Angle revealed that he was legitimately knocked out during the match and can’t even recall the match at all.


“Pat Patterson was a big part of it.  Rock, Triple H, and I all threw in our two cents worth. The story of the match was Triple H had to take me out at the beginning because he was so angry at me for kissing Stephanie.  We had to do a table spot.  I wasn’t supposed to get knocked out for real.  It was supposed to be a work.  Unfortunately, the table gave way early.  Triple H had my arms behind my back with his pedigree finish, and he didn’t have time to let my arms go so I could protect myself.  The table gave way early, and I got knocked out for real. 

This was a nightmare because the match was structured where I was supposed to get ‘knocked out’, pretend, then I was going to come back, join in with Stephanie, and try to help Triple H.  Not help Triple H, but get involved in the match.  Stephanie wanted me involved in the match because The Rock was kicking Triple H’s a**.  That was the story of the match.  I was supposed to get knocked out early.  I was going to come back 10 minutes later, go wrestle in the match, and the finish was the finish, which was The Rock going over.  The match told a great story.  I don’t remember any of it.  It was put together very well, but I have no recollection of it.

Kurt Angle has been enjoying his life in retirement after WrestleMania 35. We certainly wonder if he will make his return to pro wrestling one way or the other.
