Kurt Angle and Conrad Thompson recently recorded another edition of The Kurt Angle Show, and discussed friendship. Angle spoke Rhyno, Edge, and Christian, who along with Kurt made up what they called “Team RECK”.

The WWE Hall of Famer, and 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist shared what he had in common with his travel partners, and told listeners:

"No good road stories, but the reason why we got along so well was because, at that time, none of us drank alcohol or took drugs. We had that in common. You know, we were just driving, listening to music and laughing, bull****, go to the gym, go eat at the restaurant and then go to the arena, do our show and then go back to the hotel. We just entertained each other the whole time, and it was a lot of fun. Especially being away from your family for so long. You have to kind of group up another family that you travel with on the road, and they were my family. We called ourselves Team RECK, Rhyno, Ede, Christian, Kurt (laughs)”

The faction made a few appearances together on WWE TV, but WWE put an end to the storyline at King of the Ring 2001.
