I never in my life would've thought I'd hear people talking about Kurt Angle sucking as a wrestler... I'm just like... what? lol
2001, Angle was having some of the best matches of the year. Some classics with Benoit, Austin, Rock, and Shane McMahon
2002 was Angle's best overall year period. After Backlash 2002 and the Brand Split, Angle was having amazing match after amazing match.... on Smackdown, his matches are fucking classics during this year with the whole Angle, Edge, Rey, Guerreros, Benoit feuds.
2003 was a weird year, but still a great one... his RR match with Benoit was one of my all time favs, he had a great(but limited) match with Lesnar at WM 19, came back from a career-threatening injury, won the title in a great Triple Threat match, beat Lesnar in an amazing match, had a pretty good feud with Cena, and that amazing Ironman match with Lesnar
2004 was a weird year.. as I dont remember many Angle matches that year outside of his matches with Eddie that year.
2005 was the year he had the epic feud with Shawn Michaels. all their matches were great.
2006 was a great year(another weird one too though) just for the NWO match with Undertaker. one of my all time favorites
I havent seen a LOT of Angle in TNA, but from 2000-2006 Angle was the most consistent performer in WWE
