Shelton took to Twitter today to express his love for Kurt Angle, who had posted a video clip to provide an update on his health . In Benjamin’s post, he also referred to the multi-time champion as “captain.”

It is needless to say how close Angle and Benjamin are. The two were part of the famous Team Angle faction created in December 2002. The RAW star and Charlie Haas dominated the SmackDown Tag Team scene shortly after the stable’s formation. Team Angle lasted for around eight months on WWE programming despite their successful run back in the day.

Previously, in an interview with The Hannibal TV on YouTube, the veteran had explained that he thoroughly enjoyed working on the Team Angle storyline. He also noted that he would have liked the story to continue for ideally three years, but the promotion had other plans in store for them:

“We created Team Angle, we had a lot of fun. I just don’t think the team lasted as long as it should have. I think it lasted a good 8 months. We should have a good three year run but the company wanted to break us up and have us wrestle each other.”
