Kurt Angle Unhappy With Booking Of WWE Survivor Series 2017 Match, Believes It Became The Triple H Show
Kurt Angle felt like the spotlight was taken away from Braun Strowman
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle discussed his participation at the 2017 Survivor Series pay-per-view during a recent edition of his The Kurt Angle Show podcast.
The Olympic Hero was a member of Team Raw in the traditional Survivor Series elimination tag match main event. In it, he teamed with Triple H, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor and Braun Strowman to defeat Team SmackDown, which comprised John Cena, Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode.
Despite coming out on the winning side, Angle expressed his displeasure with how the match was laid out, believing that it was designed to be all about The Game. According to Kurt, this was to the detriment of himself, as well as Braun Strowman.
Asked whether the bout turned into the 'Triple H show', Angle said:
"Yes and I didn't agree with that, especially making Braun [Strowman] look like a complete assh*le. I'm not sure what they were trying to accomplish at that point. I know that Triple H wanted to get the win, I understand that but the way they did that just made it look like, you know, nobody else mattered but Triple H and that's not what you wanna do with talent that you're building.
"They could have done it a different way [build to Angle & HHH being mixed tag at WrestleMania 34]. I just don't think they should've let Braun Strowman hang there high and dry.
"It was a decent match. It wasn't great, it wasn't awesome, it was just a good match. It's not gonna be memorable, nobody's gonna remember this years from now. It was just a decent match. Nobody was excited, nobody was high-fiving each other. It was just handshake, good match.
"It was used to help build the match [with] Ronda [Rousey], myself and Triple H and Stephanie [McMahon] so, I understand why they planted the seed. I just don't agree with what they did with Braun there. I understand him giving me the Pedigree, screwing me over and screw me over with the win against Shane [McMahon], that made sense but the thing with Braun Strowman of him hanging there high and dry just made him look like an idiot".
