When WCW (purchased by the WWF in early 2000) and ECW formed The Alliance and invaded the WWF in mid-2001, Kurt turned face and began an angle where he joined forces with WWF Champion Steve Austin to repel them.

As part of the angle, Team WWF lost to Team Alliance when Austin turned on his team to join the Alliance. At the close of the match, Austin nailed Angle with a Stone Cold Stunner, causing him to get pinned by the other team.[37] After winning and losing the WCW World Heavyweight Championship,[38][39] WCW United States Championship,[40][41] and WWF Hardcore Championship in matches with Alliance members,[42] Angle was booked to defeat Austin in a SummerSlam rematch for his second WWF Championship at Unforgiven.[43] He dropped the title back to Austin on the October 8, 2001 episode of Raw when WWF Commissioner William Regal joined the Alliance and cost Angle the match.[44] As part of the storyline, Angle subsequently joined the Alliance himself,[45] but ultimately returned to the WWF by enabling The Rock to defeat Austin in a "winner takes all" bout between the WWF and The Alliance at Survivor Series.[43] For the Australian professional wrestling promotion, see World Championship Wrestling (Australia). ...

After dropping the US Championship to Edge, the duo were booked into a lengthy feud.
