WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has not returned to pro wrestling since his release, but that didn’t stop WWE from offering him a role. However, he will never wrestle again. That being said, he still racked up a ton of memories.
Kurt Angle had an amazing first year in WWE as he competed against several top Superstars, including Triple H. He was engaged in a love triangle with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in 2000.
It also featured Kurt Angle kissing Stephanie McMahon. While speaking on his podcast, Angle talked about how it felt to kiss Stephanie McMahon in front of Vince McMahon.
“It was weird. It was very uncomfortable. Vince, not only was he directing, he was literally two feet away from us. The camera was right here, Stephanie and I are here, and Vince is right behind the camera looking at us. I’m not saying he felt like he looked like he was aroused, but he had this look like, I want to see this. So I kissed Stephanie, and I do it like this because I’m nervous as hell. I look like a duck, fish lips. Stephanie afterward said, ‘You kiss like a fish.’ I said, ‘What the hell do you want me to do? Do you want me to slip you the tongue while your dad’s watching? Plus you’re married to Triple H.”
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 multiple World Title reigns.
