"He [Brock Lesnar] was going across the ring earlier. You see what he does? He second guesses himself. There is a little pause right before he goes. Ugh! I thought he broke his neck. I was surprised that he kicked out. He didn't even know where he was. Right then, I was like, what are we going to do? He just missed the finish, and I can hear F5 because he's not going to be able to do the Moonsault again. He's out of it. He's telling me he thinks he can do it again, and he kicks me in the gut and F5."
Kurt Angle also revealed that he wasn't supposed to lose that match. He said that he was supposed to hold on to the Title for longer but his neck was acting up, so he dropped the Title to Brock Lesnar.
Kurt Angle later said that Brock Lesnar was doing the move in OVW, so he thought he could do it here. Angle took all the blame for the move, saying that he shouldn't have agreed to and that it wasn't a smart decision.
