Kurt Angle On Which Legend He Tried To Get To Wrestle Him At Wrestlemania XX

During his interview with Chris Van Vliet, Kurt Angle revealed that he made an attempt to get Bret “The Hitman” Hart to wrestle him at Wrestlemania XX. Here’s what he had to say:

Well, I was trying to get that done. And I understood why Bret didn’t want to do it. Me being 51 now and looking back. And if a young Bret Hart came to me now and said, ‘Hey, let’s do our dream match,’ I’d be like, ‘Eh, it’s not gonna be the dream match I’d like it to be. I probably don’t wanna get in that ring.’ And so I understood why Bret didn’t want to do it, because he had the stroke and he had a lot of bad luck, you know. Some things that were medically difficult for him to be able to come back and be at his very best. So I understand why. He wanted to be the Bret Hart that everybody adored, and so did I. I was, you know. I even told him, ‘Look, you don’t have to bump at all. I’ll do all the bumping.’ And was like, ‘Nah, it won’t be the Bret Hart match I want it to be and I can’t do that.’ And I completely understood.
