This is where Angle delivered the classic line that Eddie couldn't beat him, which helped bring out the best in Eddie with his response, which created a great segment.

1 Snaps At You Suck

The 'You Suck' chant is one of the most famous chants in the history of professional wrestling, and Kurt Angle really did make the most of it with this fantastic promo, which gained amazing responses.

Angle totally flipped at the chant during this episode of Raw. After coming out to the usual chants, Angle took to the microphone to berate the fans, going back behind the curtain to do his entrance again, demanding that they shut their mouths.

Of course, this only made things louder and from there he went on an excellent heel rant about how he is the best wrestler alive, gaining some amazing heel heat in the process.
