Kurt Angle spoke on his podcast about how he wasn’t sure what the point was of the 2017 men’s Survivor Series match.
The bout ended in Triple H turning on his team, but ultimately didn’t go anywhere and made him look silly.
Speaking on “The Kurt Angle Show“, Kurt Angle said;
“Yes [2017 men’s Survivor Series match turned into the ‘Triple H’ show] and I didn’t agree with that, especially making Braun [Strowman] look like a complete asshole.
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.”
