Part of the Kurt Angle Q&A Tour. I posted Taker highlights from this recently.
Someone asked Kurt about the Undertaker. Kurt didn’t really have any stories other than he said that in the back, Taker was like Vince’s second son, not Triple H. He spoke about the streak ending and how it is one of the bad decisions they’ve made, however there is no way it would have happened unless Taker either said it himself or agreed to it. If anyone was going to do it they certainly picked the right guy, “you can’t get any more f***ing legit than Brock!” Kurt said. Kurt did say that Taker did always look after guys like him and Brock and that he was glad that if anyone (other than him, which Kurt said there were never any plans for him to beat the streak despite rumours), Brock was the best man to do it and the way they booked him thereafter was perfect.
To all those who are complaining about Taker losing, his heat being gone, him being buried, his character being killed, etc, take it from someone who’s been in WWE long enough to know what he’s talking about. Why would Vince do any of that to his “second son?”
