#3 Kurt Angle reveals how Brock Lesnar’s chair shot led to his broken neck

WWE legend Kurt Angle recently opened up about his neck injury in 2003. He had just returned from an injury hiatus and locked horns with Brock Lesnar in a WWE Championship match. Meanwhile, The Beast hit him with a chair shot, leading to Angle sustaining a brutal neck injury.

Speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, The Olympian highlighted that he made a mistake by rushing his return. Angle added that he hadn’t fully recovered from his previous injury back then, and the broken neck intensified the situation.

“I broke my neck again two months after this. Brock Lesnar hit me in the head with a chair, and I broke my neck again. Three vertebrae and I was back in the same position as I was before,” recalled Kurt Angle. “I believe that I rushed back and didn’t let my neck fully heal.” [50:40 – 51:00]

He insisted Lesnar should not be blamed for the unfortunate incident. Instead, Angle believes that he was unlucky during that phase between 2003 and 2006, suffering from a broken neck four times in two and a half years.

#4 Brock Lesnar shares a wholesome moment with WWE fans following SummerSlam main event

Brock Lesnar certainly stole the show with his performance at SummerSlam 2022. Although he didn’t win the title, fans praised The Beast for his memorable performance. Following the premium live event, several spectators at the venue shared a video of what happened after the show went off the air.

Lesnar walked back inside the ring where he had kept his hat. He was hurt and struggled to get back on his feet but used help from the ropes. He then put on his hat and thanked the fans as they cheered for him while his entrance theme blasted on the speakers.

Lesnar has enjoyed his recent run as a babyface, and it was great to see him celebrate a wholesome moment with fans before his exit.

#5 Reason why Brock Lesnar’s jaw-dropping SummerSlam spot surprised everyone backstage

As mentioned above, Lesnar’s destruction of the ring accounted for a jaw-dropping spot at SummerSlam. Latest backstage reports have revealed that the moment’s intensity took everyone by surprise, including people backstage. The spot was rehearsed once before the show, but Lesnar was not involved. Instead, someone from the production took his place during the rehearsal.

Before Lesnar lifted the ring from one corner, he drove the vehicle into the squared circle and pushed the entire structure towards the announcement desk. It appears that no one expected the squared circle to move with such force, and it genuinely shocked everyone.
