When Kurt Angle first came on the WWE scene during the Attitude Era, it was clear he was destined for great things. While his wrestling ability was never in question, Angle could also charm crowds with his silly all-American heel character who seemed to be from a bygone era.
20 years to this day, Kurt Angle won his first WWE Championship at No Mercy in 2000. The man Angle beat to win the title was The Rock. Ariel Helwani tweeted that he went to the event in Albany, New York, with friends and loved every moment of it. The Rock responded to the Tweet and stated that he loved the match.
The Rock calls Kurt Angle the greatest athlete of all-time
The Rock recalls that the match at No Mercy had a significant build-up, and he loved the match. Moreover, The Rock was honored to put over Kurt Angle that day. The Rock won back the title at No Way Out in 2001.
The Rock never forgets people he worked with, including Kurt Angle. Angle would eventually become a 4-time WWE Champion and be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017.Published 22 Oct 2020, 19:49 IST
