Kurt Angle is a WWE Hall Of Famer with several years under his belt. He is currently retired from wrestling as his body has gone through a lot of wear and tear over the years. WWE were concerned regarding his performance so they were extra careful with him regarding his safety.
Miro wanted to square off against several Superstars in WWE, but he was never able to square off against Kurt Angle. It seems WWE had a very serious reason for not allowing them to feud.
During a recent live Twitch stream, Miro revealed that he wanted a match against Angle and asked WWE regarding it. The company refused his idea as they feared if Angle somehow died, they would not want to shoulder that responsibility.
“I wanted to wrestle [Kurt Angle]. I talked to two people. I’m not going to say who they are, but I talked to two people and they are really high up there. I said, ‘How about we bring back Kurt? It’s going to be great. One, he’s the greatest professional wrestler ever. Two, it’s USA coming back and I’m doing the Russian thing.’ Kurt would have been the perfect person, but they told me no. This is verbatim from the person that told me. He said, ‘We don’t want to feel responsible if he comes back and dies.’ That’s from the person that told me. There were two people there. If one says I’m lying, hopefully the other will stand up and say it’s true. In the end, he got that match with Corbin, but I always wanted to wrestle Kurt.”
Had WWE allowed the match to take place, it could have been a great one. Unfortunately, we will never be seeing the two compete.
