10 Best Kurt Angle TNA Matches
#9 Kurt Angle vs. Jay Lethal - TNA No Surrender 2007
Kurt Angle has actually referred to this match as the best match he ever had in TNA. This match really showed that Lethal had a bright future in wrestling and could hold his own with the top talents in the company. Angle had actually entered this match as the reigning X Division Champion, having won it, the TNA Tag Team titles and TNA Heavyweight Championship all in the one match at the previous pay-per-view.
Angle started off No Surrender by dropping the tag team gold, but would it happen with the X Division and to someone who at the time wouldn't have been considered to be in Angle's league? Angle tried to out wrestle Lethal at the beginning. Lethal eventually fought back with various counters, which frustrated Angle.
After Angle gave a serious of suplexes, Lethal responded with some of his Randy Savage tribute moves. We got some convincing near falls from lethal, which got the crowd hot and very much in his favor. Finally, Lethal would counter the Ankle Lock into a roll up to win the match and X Division Championship.
