Kurt Angle’s Real Wrestling Match With Brock Lesnar
Angle and Lesnar have different versions of this story. An interviewer once asked Lesnar while he was in the UFC, what exactly was the result when he and Angle had a wrestling match? Lesnar angrily responded: “I tapped him in 10 seconds.” Despite the fact that there are no “taps” in a freestyle wrestling match. However, there are more than a handful of wrestlers confirmed Angle’s story as they were standing ringside watching it unfold.
In short, Lesnar had won an NCAA championship at the University of Minnesota and Angle was a gold medalist at the 1996 Olympic games. Angle had the more decorated pedigree but Lesnar was confident he would win in a freestyle wrestling match due to his 70 pound weight advantage. Before an episode of RAW in South Dakota, the wrestlers were messing around in the ring and the two decided to go at it, so everyone cleared the ring and watched.
“We fought in a wrestling ring during the day before our show,” Angle told Sports Illustrated. “It was fun. It was nerve-wracking. Someone was going to win, get hurt, or die.”
According to Angle, Lesnar thought that he would dominate the match due to his size advantage. Lesnar was not only taller than Angle, but at about 300 pounds, held about an 80-pound weight advantage.
“Brock was in the ring with Big Show,” Angle said. “He was literally throwing this 530-pound man around the ring like a little kid. I’d never seen anyone lift up Big Show like that without his help, but Brock was picking him up and throwing him around.”
