Kurt Angle Vs Brock Lesnar Wrestlemania 19
This clash held at Safeco field in Seattle, featured the two superstars with the best amateur wrestling pedigree to ever grace WWE. The match itself, which was for the WWE championship, was first-rate , as you would expect featuring performers of their caliber.
The fact that this match went on last on a card this quality, speaks volumes of how highly the company felt towards these two star athletes. Other matches on the card, included Triple H vs Booker T, Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho, Hulk Hogan vs Vince McMahon and even the third bout in the classic Wrestlemania series between Steve Austin and The Rock.
As you would expect with these two superstars, the match was very physical, aggressive and intense. The fact Kurt Angle required neck Surgery afterwards says it all. The end of the match famously almost ended in disaster, when Brock Lesnar chose do debut his shooting star press from the top rope , unfortunately for Brock he miss judged the move crashing down on his head and face , somehow avoiding a broken neck of his own. Amazingly Brock managed to continue and hit the third F-5 of the match to take the WWE crown.
