For the first time ever on WWE television, Kurt Angle and AJ Styles squared off as The Olympic Hero’s farewell tour continued. The two’s storied past was clearly on everyone’s mind as the WWE Universe was enthralled by every action each Superstar took. Angle and Styles stormed out of the starting blocks, quickly trading blows and big-time maneuvers in spades.
However, neither Superstar would get the chance to see how it would have played out; right after Styles escaped the Ankle Lock, Randy Orton slid into the ring and struck his WrestleMania opponent with an RKO. Randy looked ready to pounce on Angle as well, but Kurt turned the tides and dropped The Viper with an Angle Slam. The Apex Predator had struck first, but The Phenomenal One would clearly not be down for long.
