Kurt Angle has said in a recent interview that he spoke to the Undertaker about ending his famous streak at WrestleMania back in 2006.
The WWE legend recently spoke to Wrestling Inc about his time in the WWE, specifically about his feud with The Phenom. He was asked if at any point was there any talks about him possibly ending the legendary undefeated WrestleMania streak.
He said: "Yeah, not that it was talked about by Vince McMahon. I was champion in 2006 and Undertaker approached me and said he wanted to face me at WrestleMania.

"Until then, Undertaker didn't have a WrestleMania moment with a five star match. He thought he could have that with me, and he was considering possibly losing as long as he had that moment he wanted, and I don't blame him. Vince said no way, and I agreed with Vince."
So at one point, Angle was close to breaking The Undertaker's undefeated streak back in 2006. Instead, The Phenom would hold onto the achievement for another eight years before losing to Brock Lesnar in 2014. However, Angle says he should have never been defeated at all on the biggest wrestling stage there is.
He said: "I don't think Undertaker should ever have lost at WrestleMania, I think he should have been undefeated forever.
"They made their choice, and if you're going to do it with anybody, do it with Brock Lesnar, because he's as legit as it gets. Me and Undertaker ended up having our match at No Way Out 2006. If you ever see that match, it was definitely a WrestleMania type of match."
A wise decision considering how shocking and great the match was between Lesnar and The Undertaker eight years later. But you just have to think about what might have been if he remained undefeated or even if Angle was the one to defeat The Phenom on the biggest wrestling stage of them all.
