► Kurt Angle wanted to add a new movement to his arsenal
Nevertheless there was an incident that made the satisfaction not perfect for Angle. On the Kurt Angle Show Podcast, the ‘Olympic Hero’ recalled how he failed a move he tried to apply to Michaels and that after that, he decided not to use it again.
They were both fighting down the ring. Angle tried to apply the Angle Slam, But instead of whipping Michaels to the ground, he slammed him into one of the ring posts. The impact was on the hip, and even the fans reacted in horror.
Well, he didn’t hit his thigh, but his butt. I didn’t set him up properly and went back with everything and Shawn. I was a little down in position But it worked, it made sense There was nothing wrong with the move, whether it hit her lower back or her butt. I think the fans had an idea of what I wanted to do.
However, despite the fans’ reaction, Angle realized that it was a very risky move:
“It’s a brutal move, and since I didn’t apply it properly, I preferred not to use it again. I had thought of using it as a desperate resource to stop my rival, but since it didn’t work out the way I wanted, I decided not to use it anymore. It was the first and last time I used it.
