Triple H founded Evolution back in 2003, which consisted of himself, Ric Flair, Randy Orton and Batista. They went on to become one of the most dominant factions of all time. However, at the height of his power in WWE, Triple H might have used his influence to derail Team Angle’s momentum in the company and have them fall down the pecking order.

Team Angle was formed in 2002, with Kurt Angle, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin quickly gaining popularity in WWE. However, they would break up in 2003 after losing the WWE Tag Team Championships. Many fans felt that the stable broke up too soon, and even Kurt Angle shared the same sentiments in the past.

While speaking to Steve Fall, former WWE Superstar Charlie Haas talked about Team Angle’s demise. Haas suggested that Triple H had Team Angle split up due to jealousy.

“We heard that the Team Angle thing was getting so hot on SmackDown. You’ve got to remember what was really hot on the other show, Evolution. So, we heard that maybe it was getting too close to what was going on over there. Maybe it was competition; that’s what we heard because they didn’t split Evolution; they split us.


That’s the powers that be; I couldn’t that answer that question if I tried. That’s what I was told, or maybe it was coming from Kurt thinking that maybe, that Hunter at the time was thinking that we’re too much competition for them instead of raising the bar to see who is better, we can just dismantle one team.”

Kurt Angle also previously stated that he regrets Team Angle breaking up too soon. If anything, Charlie Hass is certainly down to get the World’s Greatest Tag Team back together. Regardless, fans will always think it’s a big shame that Team Angle didn’t last long.
