This was booked as Angle’s last SmackDown match before making the move to ECW, which led to Paul Heyman joining the announcers to hype his ECW debut.

Although this match would have been fine without him, Kurt Angle and The Heavyweight Champ, Rey Mysterio, threw everything they had at each other and Heyman gives it even more of a big fight feel.

Kurt Angle vs. Eddie Guerrero (c)

WWE Championship Match

SmackDown #295 (April 14, 2005)

These two have great chemistry together and even though Eddie Guerrero was technically a good guy, this played out like a contest between two heels.

This was the last time Kurt and Eddie wrestled a singles match together and they went out with a bang, having one of the best matches of their respective careers.

Kurt Angle vs. John Cena

No Mercy 2003

John Cena had his first televised WWE match against Kurt Angle and this match, which took place a little over a year later, was a perfect way to showcase how far he had come in his short career.

Cena was pretty fresh, but Kurt was one of the best in the world at this point in his career and had the ability to make anyone look fantastic.

Best Kurt Angle Matches - vs Undertaker 2003

These two have a counter for everything in this bout – even the other’s biggest moves. Brock Lesnar interfered at the end of this match, which felt disappointed a lot of fans, but even still, this is an excellent match between two of the greatest of all time.

Kurt Angle (c) vs. Brock Lesnar

WWE Championship Match

WrestleMania XIX

This match had a ton of hype. It was Brock Lesnar’s first WrestleMania match, against Kurt Angle, in the main event for the championship, no less.

WWE had strapped a rocket to his back and if anyone could make him look even cooler than he already did, it was Angle. Lesnar and Angle quite literally almost killed each other in this bout.

Kurt Angle vs. Edge

Hair vs. Hair Match

Judgement Day 2002

Best Kurt Angle Matches - vs Edge 2002

The photoshopped image of Edge with no hair is reason enough alone to check this out; if you need more persuasion, a solid chunk of the commentary is devoted to how ugly Edge would look with no hair.

But in all seriousness, this is an incredible display of talent from two men who just so happen to be fighting to keep their locks.

WWF Championship Match

SummerSlam 2001

From the hot start to the (many) brutal spots, to the finish where everyone, including the referee, was covered in Kurt’s blood, both Austin and Angle bring the intensity for this one. This is an awesome match.
