• “A generation or two earlier, I would have been the top babyface” – WWF Legend

During a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, our Olympic Gold Medalist talked about Stone Cold Steve Austin’s 2001 heel run in the World Wrestling Federation.

Here’s what Kurt Angle said:

“They were cheering for the bad guys. Yes. I mean, Stone Cold Steve Austin is a perfect example of someone that was supposed to be a heel and he was a babyface.

I think the reason why is because he was a rebel. You know, he drank beer. He flipped off his boss. You know, he had an attitude. Those to me mean that you’re heel.

So. But, things changed in wrestling, especially in the mid-90s. The Attitude Era changed everything. I would say a generation or two earlier, I would have been the top babyface in the company.”

Kurt Angle turned babyface in 2001 and feuded with a heel Stone Cold and even defeated him for the WWF Championship in the main event of the WWF Unforgiven PPV.
