Kurt Angle not happy with the ending of Survivor Series 2017 Men’s 5-on-5 match. Raw and Smackdown both had many great stars in their team. Raw had Kurt Angle, Triple H, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor and Braun Strowman, and Smackdown had Randy Orton, John Cena, Bobby Roode, Shane McMahon and Shinsuke Nakamura.
Kurt Angle during his recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show podcast talked about the Survivor Series 2017, he feels 5-on-5 match turned into a Triple H show.
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.
