Kurt Angle on an interesting anecdote with Vince McMahon

Vince McMahon has shown many times what kind of authority he is and what he always wanted was discipline. Vince was extremely dedicated to what he was doing, he wanted things to be perfect, and sometimes he used to be frustrated by the behavior of certain wrestlers.

However, it should not be forgotten that Vince always used the moment to joke. In the book called "It's True!", Kurt Angle recalled an interesting moment during a plane flight “The quintessential alpha male, Vince McMahon always liked to prove himself, even against Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle.

On a plane ride, Vince decided to sneak up behind Angle and take him down amateur-style, starting an impromptu match in the aisle”. “At that moment something made me decide to have a little fun with the boss. When Vince got up to walk away, I attacked him from behind, knocked him down, turned him over, and pinned him right in the aisle.

There were about eighty World Wrestling Federation people on the plane, and everyone was howling."- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com

Vince knew how to motivate his wrestlers, he used every moment to raise their self-confidence, point out their mistakes and have fun with them.

It is strange to imagine the company without him. “Vince and I had been on the floor for about thirty seconds as Vince struggled to get me off of him when the Undertaker came over and put a choke hold on me. He clamped me so tight that he actually choked me out and I blacked out for a minute.

When I came to, Vince was standing up and he had this big smile on his face. I think he just loved the idea that he was wrestling with an Olympic champion, and he decided it wasn’t going to end there”.
