Kurt Angle has hosted a new Q&A on his Facebook and revealed that the most difficult match he had in his career was a 60-minute Iron Man match with Brock Lesnar on an episode of Smackdown back in 2003. Here are highlights:

On his most difficult match: “The one-hour iron man match with Brock Lesnar. It was intense and so was Brock. Not to mention my sister passed away the night before. That match was two world class athletes going toe-to-toe for 60 mins. Intense.”

On the most days he’s been on the road: “23 days. That was back in 2004. 16 matches in 16 cities, five autograph signings in different cities, and two travel days on the road to home.”

On the most dangerous submission move he’s been locked in: “Armbars are the nastiest. Probably because your arms are smaller and will snap faster than your legs. Second…getting choked out.”

On what was going on in his mind during his debut: “I had no idea what to do, I just did what I was told. In this business, being a great leader also entails being a great follower at first. I was an excellent follower when I started. I listened extremely well when my career began. And that morphed into me being an excellent leader years later.”
