Kurt Angle, who is a WWE Hall of Famer in his own right, hailed The Undertaker for positively influencing him during the nascent stages of his professional wrestling career.

Angle, recently told The Zaslow Show, “Taker taught me a lot,” and elaborated, “I worked with him quite a bit when I started and he taught me the ropes. He was really good. His psychology is very basic, but it absolutely works well. And following him and letting him lead me really helped me out in my career.”

The Undertaker is one of the most respected characters and human beings in the professional wrestling fraternity. He is one of the greatest to have entered the squared circle. Not only his phenomenal streak at WrestleMania but his positive influence on the present and future generation of superstars will be hailed forever. The Undertaker’s aura is unmatched and his name should be enshrined into the coveted WWE Hall of Fame.

The Phenom VS Kurt Angle rivalry

The two legends of the ring met each other a number of times and most of their matches were a treat to watch.

The Undertaker and Kurt Angle competed against each other on 6 different occasions. Their first meeting in the ring was in a one-on-one match in 2000 in the Pay-Per-View fully loaded. The soon-to-be Hall of Famer won the match convincingly.

Their next encounter took place four months later in the WWF Survivor Series PPV. This match was for Angle’s WWF World Heavyweight Championship which he managed to defend after intervention from Edge and Christian.

The next match between them took place almost a year later in November 2001 on an episode of RAW. ‘The Dead Man’ won via disqualification.

Angle and Taker waited for almost a couple of years to face each other and this time it was on the blue brand. This match ended in a no-contest.

The next match between them was the best they had and it took place at WWE No Way Out in 2006. The match lasted 30 minutes and Kurt Angle got the W and defended his World Heavyweight title successfully.

A week later they would have their last fight against each other on SmackDown and ‘Taker won the match via disqualification. This was another thrilling contest but didn’t match the level of their previous bout.
