“It was so nerve racking. Not only that, the director was Vince McMahon. He was three feet away in a chair. I’m kissing Vince McMahon’s daughter right in front of him, of course I didn’t want to slip her the tongue. I didn’t know what to do, I was so nervous about it because Vince McMahon is just standing there looking and he’s wide eyed like ‘I want to see this.’ I was like ‘holy crap, this is so weird.’ It was a great moment for me because it did so much for me but it was really uncomfortable.
What happens [when we go off the air], Stephanie says ‘Kurt, you kiss like a fish.’ I said ‘Stephanie, what the hell did you want me to do? Your dad is watching us.’
Angle’s feud with Triple H definitely helped elevate him to the top of the company in his first year with WWE. Angle went on to have a tremendous career in the company, comprising of multiple World Title reigns.
