WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle is regarded as one of the best in-ring performers to have ever graced a pro wrestling ring. He has competed against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer. However, Angle had a penchant of being too loud while calling spots too loudly.
While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show on AdFreeShows.com, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle and Conrad Thompson discussed Angle’s famous match against Chris Benoit at Judgment Day 2001.
Kurt Angle revealed that he was louder than most wrestlers during matches as he felt being more safe than sorry was the better approach. This apparently upset McMahon as he was very loud at times.
“Vince McMahon (laughs). He told me, yeah. He said, ‘Listen, you’ve got to tone it down; the TV is picking up on you calling the spots. And I said, ‘Vince, I can’t help it. I want my opponent to know where he is going in any particular moment.’ So, I called the match, not only for my opponent but for myself too, and I’m pretty loud with it. I’ve always been that way. I never changed (laughs); even though Vince McMahon talked to me a couple more times, I still did it. I just felt being safe more than sorry was a better choice.”
Angle added that he never stopped spot-calling throughout his career and Vince McMahon even instructed him to “tone it down” on several occasions. Angle hasn’t been seen on WWE television for a long time now and we wonder whether he will return to the company eventually.
