‘Again and Again’ – Kurt Angle unhappy with WWE booking decision for this year’s SummerSlam
Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle recently criticized WWE for re-booking Roman Reigns against Brock Lesnar for their upcoming PPV.
Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns squaring off will always be a money match in WWE as the duo have been booked for three Wrestlemania main events. In fact, at Wrestlemania this year, the tribal leader defeated the beast to become the undisputed champion of both brands. Still, WWE shocked fans by booking them for this year’s SummerSlam. Is WWE Overbooking Top Two Stars? Well, it seems Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle thinks so.
Recently, in his interview with NBC Sportsthe WWE Hall of Famer opened up about WWE’s recent SummerSlam booking decision and gave his take.
Kurt Angle thinks Roman Reigns should face young talent, not Brock Lesner
Originally, WWE was planning a match between The Tribal Chief and Randy Orton at this year’s SummerSlam. But, following Orton’s back problems, the plan had to be changed. Eventually, management had to use their go-to card and book Brock against Roman again.
During his chat with NBC Sports, Angle was asked if WWE is having trouble fielding Lesnar-level opponents for Roman Reigns. The veteran responded candidly and noted that Roman should feud with young NXT talent that matches his skill level. Angle said:
“Roman Reigns, he needs to fight new talent, NXT guys…that can match his skills…”
Angle continued on WWE’s recent booking and admitted he had no problem watching Brock vs. Roman. But, Angle also felt the match was already done. The Hall of Famer thinks WWE needs to create new talent instead of booking the two superstars over and over again. He said:
“I have nothing against Brock Lesnar coming back and fighting Roman Reigns, but it’s been done before, and you don’t want to keep doing it over and over again. We have to make new talents.
Like it or not, the two heavyweights will lock horns again at SummerSlam later this month.
The Beast Incarnate confronts the Tribal Chief and greets him with a challenge for his title
Roman Reigns successfully defended his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Riddle on a recent episode of SmackDown Live. But the party didn’t last long as The Beast came out and delivered an F5 to the champion.
Later, WWE officially confirmed that the two will face off in a Last Man Standing match at the upcoming SummerSlam PPV.

Nonetheless, while the match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar may seem repetitive, it doesn’t take anything away from the game. Who knows, WWE might get something special out of the upcoming Last Man Standing match.
