He went on to say that he cannot claim that Lesnar defeated Angle easily. He said, “It was two guys who started out just kind of you know goofing around and tussling, and hey oh well you got to take down on me…oh oh oh you got to take down on me, and the next thing you know for 30 minutes they just were taking each other down, and it became a kind of a contest, and I know that I didn’t keep track.”
