WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle remains one of the most accomplished and beloved pro wrestlers of all time. Angle is certainly one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever competed in the ring. Angle also had a good relationship with Vince McMahon but was initially told not to do moonsaults for a bizarre reason.

The Olympic Hero has competed against the best of the best that the professional wrestling world has to offer. Angle had the best rookie year in WWE history and became the champion in no time.

While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle revealed that Vince McMahon initially yelled at him for performing moonsaults, telling him not to do it as Angle was a ‘big guy.’

“I got yelled at a couple of times when I first started doing the moonsault off the top rope. Vince was like, ‘Listen, you’re not a small guy, you’re a big guy,’ and I said, ‘Vince, but I can do it, that’s actually impressive.’ He said, ‘Yeah, you’re right, but don’t use it a lot, just every once in a while,’ and he was right.”


Kurt Angle proved that he still has pro wrestling in his veins, no matter what, after returning to RAW earlier this year. We will have to wait and see whether Angle will return to WWE or not.
