Kurt Angle is a legend in professional wrestling. That should probably go without saying of course. However, it will become even more legendary – if that is at all possible – because he now claims that he was once promised the first Undisputed Title in 2001.
Of course it was an honor for Chris Jericho. Jericho ended up beating Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock on the same night, and that’s of course no small feat. It could be Kurt Angle, and that’s pretty shocking news. He talks as much as above adfreeshows.com, revealing developments in the weeks leading up to PPV.
“Vince McMahon chose me as the undisputed Champion. He wanted me to win two titles. Vince came to me a week before PPV and said, ‘Listen, is it okay if I give it to Jericho because I want to start pushing Jericho and I think this will be great for him.’
I said, ‘You should do it. I think Jericho needs it and this is a great opportunity for him. ‘ So I was supposed to win The Undisputed Championship but Vince McMahon changed it at the last second and gave it to Jericho. ”
This is of course huge news for wrestling fans and it could have completely changed the landscape of the game for a variety of reasons. Chris Jericho has done incredible things with his career and that win is still very special to him, as he said during his appearance on Broken skull sessions with Steve Austin earlier this year. The fact that Angle saw fit to step aside in favor of Jericho also said a lot about the man.
If Kurt Angle wins, will his career be on the right track? Would he leave the company in 2006 to go to TNA, resulting in a relationship with Vince McMahon? Question, question, question. We’ll never really get the answers, but what a revelation from the legendary Kurt Angle!
