Chris Jericho’s career spans the entire entertainment world, as he has performed on every perceivable stage, including the pro wrestling ring and the silver screen. His work with Fozzy piqued Kurt Angle’s attention, but things just didn’t pan out for him.

On a recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show, the Olympic Hero was questioned about his talent for drumming and whether there were any discussions about incorporating it into a storyline. After all, he’s been known to throw some of his musical ability into his comedic stories.

Kurt Angle revealed that he had interest in joining Fozzy, the band led by Chris Jericho. Unfortunately, it never materialized for Fozzy and Angle.

“I had this dream. I knew Chris Jericho was the lead singer for his band. We were in WWE and every day I wanted to go up to him and just say, ‘Hey, can I be part of your band? We can do an album, and WWE can record it, and we could be big rock stars.’ I thought, ‘You know what? I’m a drummer. I’m really good. So I think Chris would would take me in.’ But the problem is he already had a drummer, so I never asked him. I wish I would have. There could have been two drummers in his band. You never know.”


Kurt Angle’s time with Fozzy never came to pass, but the band is still very active. Only time will tell if Angle ever finds himself at a Fozzy concert, where he might get pulled on stage to live out that rock star dream.
