Kurt Angle: Vince McMahon was putting the rocket behind me

Kurt Angle is a great fighter and in the show of the same name he talked about winning the 2000 King of the Ring, and that is one of his greatest successes. “I was told right after the previous pay-per-view. Vince McMahon was putting the rocket behind me.

I was a rookie, and I won the European Championship, the Intercontinental Championship, and next in line was King of the Ring. As long as I kept producing and kept impressing everybody, he was going to continue to push me. This was my next accomplishment was to win King of the Ring,"- he said as quote by ewrestlingnews.

Kurt Angle on Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie McMahon and Kurt Angle collaborated but sometimes had to consult with Vince and Triple H “What I did to make everybody feel comfortable in whatever Stephanie and I came up with – the ideas we had – I would present them to Vince and Triple H, just out of respect to make sure I wasn’t over-crossing my boundaries.

So, I did that every show. If Stephanie and I had to do something a little bit crazy, I ran it by Vince and Triple H to make sure it was okay with them”. It wasn’t easy to do three matches in one night, but Kurt Angle was ready.

Still, he had to change some things. “At this point in my career, I was only in the business a little over a year from when I first stepped foot in the ring. That’s it, 13 months. And here I am doing three matches in one night.

It was a lot of content to remember and a lot of wrestling. I was really nervous about that because I had never had to wrestle three matches in one night before, especially this early in my career. I knew I had my work cut out for me”.
