Kurt Angle Speaks On Vince McMahon Convincing Him To Be The Face Of ECW

How did Vince McMahon convince Kurt Angle to be the face of the revived Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) promotion in WWE?

Who better to ask than the former Olympic gold medalist himself?

During a recent installment of his official podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, the WWE and IMPACT Wrestling Hall Of Fame legend explained how Vince McMahon convinced him to be the face of the revived WWE version of ECW.

Featured below is an excerpt from the episode where he touches on this particular topic.

“Vince approached me before anybody else, and he said I’m gonna start a new promotion and I want you to be the face of it. I said what’s it called, and he said ECW. But you’re gonna make less money and work in smaller arenas. I said, ‘Why the hell would I want to do that, Vince?’ He said, ‘Don’t worry, I’ll take care of you on the pay-per-views.’ And Vince did. Whether it be WWE, WCW, or ECW, as long as Vince owns it and he’s running it, I’m gonna do it because Vince has never done me wrong. I didn’t think he was gonna do me wrong in this situation, either.”
