Angle Confirms His Dream Match Getting Nixed At WrestleMania 20
Angle confirmed that the rumors were true and said the following:
“Me being at 51 now and looking back, a young Bret Hart came to me right now and said let’s do our dream match…I would be like…it’s not going to be the dream match I’d like it to be. I probably don’t want to get in that ring.
So, I understood why Bret didn’t want to do it. Because he had the stroke and he had a lot of bad luck, you know, some things happened that made it medically difficult for him to come back and be at his very best.
I told him, you know, listen, you didn’t even have to bump at all. I’ll do all the bumping and he was like, ‘Nah, it won’t be the Bret Hart match that I want it to be and I can’t do that.”
