Kurt Angle Discusses Segment With Stephanie McMahon

The only person to ever win an Olympic Gold Medal, as well as the WWE Championship, recently spoke about kissing a McMahon. Kurt Angle and Conrad Thompson discussed the moment during the most recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show podcast, where Angle recalled the way he felt going into the segment with Stephanie McMahon. Kurt explained:

“Oh, this was ridiculously weird. I mean, you know, come backstage with Stephanie, and I had to do a pre-tape that was going live. So, we weren’t going to tape it; it was going to be a one-take. I think Vince did that on purpose, so we only had to kiss once. But, I also know we didn’t have the time to pre-tape it, so that was probably the real issue”.

The WWE Hall of Famer continued to speak about the segment, which occured during a storyline centered around a Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Kurt Angle “love triangle”. Angle shared his thoughts on WWE Chairman Vince McMahon directing the segment, and mentioned:

“But, you know, we got backstage, and Vince wanted to direct it (laughs). I was like, ‘holy s***,’ Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon’s father, is going to direct me kissing her during a pre-tape. I was nervous as hell. Vince was four feet away, and his eyes were this open; he was just looking. I’m like, ‘This is so weird, man.’ I don’t know how I’m going to do this, so I went down to kiss her, and we caught eyes, and then we went to kiss and stuck my lips out like this”.

As many wrestling fans have seen by now, the kiss wouldn’t hold up to anything you’ve seen in your favorite ROM-COM. According to Angle, Stephanie called him out on the kiss, and told Kurt he kisses “like a fish”. Angle gave a behind the scenes look into the post-segment discussion with Steph, and said:

“I didn’t want to go with an open mouth because Vince was there, and I didn’t want to disrespect Triple H or Stephanie, but I kissed her like this, and after the pre-tape, she goes, hey, ‘You kiss like a fish.’ I was like, ‘What did you expect, Stephanie? Your dad’s here watching, he’s directing, and you’re dating Triple H. It’s like, what do you want me to do (laughs)”.
