WrestleMania Rewind: When Kurt Angle faced Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania | 4 unbelievable facts
WrestleMania 35 pulls the curtain down on Kurt's in-ring career while Brock Lesnar will be defending his Universal Title against the Royal Rumble winner Seth Rollins. If the Kingslayer manages to defeat the Beast Incarnate, then he may well be leaving the company for good.
However, even if Brock remains, he may not be performing much. The title is the only reason for Lesnar to show up at the big events. If he loses it, he may be waving goodbye to WWE in a short while.
The rising popularity of different talents might pose a serious threat to part-timers like Lesnar in the future. He may not be needed if more deserving talents get recognized and given main event opportunities in the promotion.
On the other hand, we have Kurt Angle, the legendary superstar who has achieved almost everything in WWE. He had been one of the best wrestlers in his era. However, time changes almost everything. The once glorious wrestler is now a pale shadow of his former self.
His desire and passion to be in the ring is as same as it was years ago, but his body is not the same. While Lesnar is privileged with a good WrestleMania opponent, Angle is not. His retirement match against Corbin seems so absurd to the fans.
These two veteran superstars who are currently at the crossroads showed an unparalleled technical brilliance at WrestleMania XIX. Let us take a look at some interesting facts from their WrestleMania feud.
#4 Lesnar was building his resume while Angle was already an established star
Here in 2019, Brock Lesnar looks like a big deal than Kurt Angle. However, when we travel back in time to 2003, Angle was a far bigger deal than Lesnar. Angle was an Olympic gold medalist and the reigning WWE Champion at that point of time.
Sure, Lesnar also had a list of accomplishments to brag about. He was the 2002 King of the Ring winner and the youngest WWE Champion, but there was still a long way to go for the Next Big Thing at that point in time.
