7. Christian Recalls Kurt Angle’s Ripped Pant Story From His Wedding

As we noted before, Team ECK (Edge, Christian & Kurt Angle) appeared on the “Table For 3” show on the WWE Network recently. Christian recalled interesting stories about WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle and you can read them below:

Christian being impressed with Kurt Angle during their time in the developmental:

“I was already under a developmental contract at the time and they were just bringing me back monthly to figure out if I was ready to go up to the main roster. Angle never had a pro wrestling match at that time. Like, I remember getting in there and doing the basic lockups and grabbing the arm, just basic things that you learn very early on. And sometimes it takes guys are long time to pick those types of things up and I remember, boom, the first time Angle had it. Every time, Angle had it and I remember thinking to myself, ‘my God, this guy is a natural.'”

On Christian having Kurt Angle’s first match at a spot show in the New England area:

“To me, that was a huge honor. First of all, for me, they trusted me to be the guy to come in there and have a match with Angle. I was like, ‘don’t worry, you always know what you’re doing out there. I’m going to talk to you’ and Angle is like, ‘what? Don’t do that.’ I was like, ‘what do you mean?’ ‘You can’t talk.’ I was like, ‘yeah, I might even tell you a joke’ and now he has got his hands here over his face, ‘please, don’t make me laugh. Please, don’t talk to me.'”

On Kurt Angle ripping his pants at Christian’s wedding:

“Maybe a little known fact that Angle stood up at my wedding. That’s how good friends we are and Adam was obviously the best man. When Angle showed up, his face was like beet red and I was like, ‘Kurt, are you alright?’ He was like, ‘I haven’t put this tux on for a while. The button is too tight.’ And it looked like Angle’s head was going to pop. And Angle was like, ‘hey, look at this,’ and Angle put his leg up and he ripped the crotch out of the pants on the way to the wedding.”
