On The Kurt Angle Show, the WWE Hall Of Famer spoke about the infamous blading botch by Guerrero at the Judgement Day PLE in 2004.

"It was the worst gimmick I had ever seen. The worst cut ever. He hit an artery, and it would not stop bleeding. I mean, it was pulsating out, it was horrible. There was so much blood in the ring, and all over Eddie and Bradshaw — it was ridiculous. It was like half the blood from Eddie's body came out of his body. It was crazy." [H/T Wrestling Inc]

Why did Kurt Angle call Brock Lesnar an idiot?

The Olympic Hero and The Beast Incarnate have had a storied past. The two have been the best of friends and the worst of enemies on WWE TV. Every fan remembers their match at WrestleMania that saw Brock Lesnar pick up the win even though he botched a Shooting Star Press.

While in conversation with Inside The Ropes, Angle explained that Brock Lesnar wanted to leave WWE to try out for the NFL. The veteran advised Lesnar against telling Vince McMahon, but Lesnar did anyway. Angle recalls the incident saying:

"We go back. We go to RAW, or SmackDown. We're on SmackDown. He goes up to Vince. Says, 'Vince, I want to try out for the NFL.' I was like, "Oh! F**ck man! He just fu**ed himself." So, next week is WrestleMania and what happened... Brock Lesnar does the job against Goldberg. It would've been the other way if Brock would have smartened up but he didn't because he's an idiot."
