“Bret and I have talked about it before. Unfortunately, Bret got hurt, and we kind of missed each other. He left WWE right before I got there, and then he went to WCW and he got kicked in the face and ended up with a concussion and had to retire from wrestling.

So, it was unfortunate that I never got to wrestle him, but I’ve always wanted to”. Kurt Angle’s final run in the WWE took place nearly 2 years ago and he retired at WrestleMania. Before retiring, Angle faced a few superstars in his final run.
