Kurt Angle recently did a Q&A on Facebook, where he took questions directly from fans. This time around, the WWE Hall of Famer answered questions about Team Angle, Steve Austin, and Rusev’s current storyline.
Check out highlights below:
His favorite moment with Steve Austin:
As great as our matches were and they were really great, I enjoyed the backstage segments with “Stone Cold.” He was funny and entertaining. It was special. That chemistry only comes around once in a lifetime.
Strangest place he has wrestled:
In my Olympic years, I wrestled in Siberia in an arena that literally had gigantic holes in it. The temperature outside was 20 degrees below, so with the holes, it felt like it was 30 degrees inside. All the wrestlers had to keep their winter jackets on until right before the referee would start our match. So we’d throw off our jackets and run to the center of the mat to start the match. The only clothing we had on were our singlets. That was it. Not a good scenario.
On the Rusev and Lana storyline:
I wasn’t crazy about it at first, but Bobby Rusev and Lana have made it interesting. Lana really stepped up. Her pouting, complaining, SCREAMING, and not making sense half the time has been very entertaining. Lana is in her element.
His thoughts on Team Angle:
We were badasses. Shooters. The real deal. And we won all the world titles. We broke up far too early. Should have stayed Team Angle for a few years instead of 8-9 months.
Working with Kevin Nash:
Kevin was very professional, he knew the biz very well, and he knew what drew money. Kevin was great to work with. I loved it. He knew I was the workhorse of the company. Kevin was very smart 😉
