Angle in one of his interviews recalled their unforgettable match at WrestleMania 19. The match left the audience in a state of shock when Brock Lesnar directly landed on his head. The consequence was so intense that he never did the move in his wrestling career ever again.

According to the plan, Brock had to win the match and thus the title. But during the final moments of the match, as Brock went up the ropes to give Kurt the Shooting Star Press, he did not make full rotation. This led him to land directly on his head. Everybody witnessing the match went into shock. 

Despite Brock Lesnar hitting his head, he continued to fight for another 5 minutes. He eventually won the match and took the title from Kurt Angle. Brock Lesnar used to do Shooting Star Press in OVW but stopped when he entered the main roster. It was due to his lack of practice that the move took the form of an injury. 

Kurt believed that Lesnar “wasn’t sure about the move, he just kind of second-guessed himself”. Brock Lesnar was also not happy with such a thing happening live that too at such a prestigious event such as WrestleMania. Nevertheless, time has passed and Brock has recovered from the injury. 

Brock Lesnar had many massive matches post injury and is in a fit state of mind as well as body. Presently, he is preparing himself against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Universal Championship at SummerSlam this week.
