• “Brock Lesnar was going to kill him!” – Kurt Angle Recalls WWF Legend’s 2002 Rib
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’, our Olympic Gold Medalist remembered the infamous fight between WWF Legend “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig and a young Brock Lesnar on ‘The Plane Ride From Hell’ in 2002.
Here’s what Kurt Angle said:
“I was on the plane when he was ribbing Brock Lesnar. Brock was trying to go sleep, and Curt Hennig just kept throwing alcohol on him, and throwing stuff at him, throwing it at his face! And Brock got so mad. Brock was going to kill him!
I mean, 5 people had to hold Brock back. It was horrible. Curt Hennig kept doing it, though. He was crazy. He was a habitual ribber, that’s all he does, especially if he is not in the ring.”
