The 5 greatest Triple Threat matches in WWE history
#2 Brock Lesnar (C) vs The Big Show vs Kurt Angle – Vengeance 2003
The 2002 Vengeance melee against The Rock and the Undertaker would not be Kurt Angle’s last WWE Title triple threat match. In fact, he would compete in another one the very next year, ironically enough, at Vengeance again.
By the time Vengeance 2003 rolled around, Angle was no longer the villainous blowhard he’d been for the majority of his WWE career. He was coming off career threatening neck fusion surgery and an incredible WrestleMania main event in which he’d lost the WWE Title to Brock Lesnar but won the respect of his opponent and the entire WWE Universe in the process.
The obvious sentimental favorite, the triple threat was peppered with action and unique offense. Between the amateur skills of Angle, the animalistic strength of Lesnar and the sheer girth of the Big Show, the contest was tailor made for some amazing spots, which include an Angle Slam on Big Show through the announcer’s table and Brock Lesnar executing a running powerbomb on Big Show from the corner; a feat that, to this day, has never been repeated.
Much to the crowd’s delight, Angle would wrest the title away by pinning defending Champion Lesnar following an Angle Slam.Modified 20 Dec 2019, 07:20 IST
