Things got heated between Rob Van Dam and Kurt Angle backstage according to the former ECW World Television Champion.
RVD joined Angle in the WWF during the 2001 Invasion storyline and would compete side-by-side as part of The Alliance.
While speaking on his “1 of a Kind” podcast, RVD recalled him and Angle botching a spot in the ring together, which led to issues backstage. He said,
“I remember one time he said something to me. We did something, there was something we might have bumped heads or something in the ring. I don’t know what it was. That match was almost over and he said something. It wasn’t a big deal but something I remember that he was like, ‘You’re not listening to me’ and I took so much offense to that you know being the veteran that and just being in a position that I was and I’m like ‘what? I’m not listening to you?’ And the match ended and he left first. I had myself all worked up and when I went back there, I went straight to him.
“I was like ‘Kurt, let’s talk outside right now’ I was like so steaming and he came out there and I said, ‘I’m not listening to you? Is that what you tell me? I need to listen to you. Who the f*** are you?’ And he’s like, ‘What?’ And I said, ‘You said I’m not listening to you.’ He goes, ‘No, I didn’t.’ I go, ‘Dude! That’s exactly what you said.’ [Kurt says], ‘No, I didn’t say that. Did I? Nah, I don’t think I said that. I didn’t mean it if I said that.’ And it was just like that like it was just like over and funny then at that point just because he was being crazy Kurt.”
Angle would leave WWE in 2006 while Van Dam would leave the following year, but both have since returned to the promotion.
