Kurt Angle Shares His Thoughts On Scott Steiner: “I Really Respect Scott”

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently pressed the record button on another episode of his own The Kurt Angle Show podcast. The special edition of the show included an “Ask Kurt Anything” session, and one of the listeners wrote in to ask about Scott Steiner.

The 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist spoke about his relationship with the former WCW Champion, and revealed that Steiner enjoyed playing ribs on his co-workers. The King of the Ring winner stated:

“I don’t have any funny Scott Steiner stories, even though he was really funny. But yeah, we had an understanding. We were both amateur wrestlers. We both had a lot of respect for each other. You know, Scott has this personality where he likes to mess with the talent; you know, he likes to rib the talent. You know, play jokes on them, and you know, nothing too mean. Just funny stuff”.

Kurt continued to chat about “Big Poppa Pump”, and spoke about what they have in common. The four-time WWE Champion talked about respect, and explained:

“He never did that with me because he had complete respect for me. So, he wouldn’t mess with me much with that aspect. I really respect Scott. I respected his amateur wrestling career. His pro wrestling career and just the person he was. He was an amazing person”.
