Just 2 days before WrestleMania, 2 of the participants in the WHC triple threat are going one on one; and its Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio!
Both guys have a LOT to prove in this match, as getting a win this close to WM will do wonders for both guys’ confidence, and will give them a psychological edge going into the match (according to the commentators all the time, anyway).
Angle controls most of this match, and at one point he hits Rey so hard, his own mouth piece falls out :lmao. Don’t know why I found that so funny, but I did.
Kurt is nice and focused in this match, as he targets the mid section of Mysterio. Always nice when Angle is focused, because it usually means is isn’t hitting random suplexes over and over again lol.
Basic stuff here tbh, with Angle just working the body of Rey for a while, then Rey makes his comeback. The finishing stretch is fun, but doesn’t last as long as I would have liked. It all seemed to rushed imo.
Its not that there is anything BAD in the match, its all fine. Angle isn’t a lunatic, Rey’s spots are fine… but it was like they were going through the motions and nothing more.
