• “Brock’s not really into that stuff” – WWF Legend Comments On His Relationship With Brock Lesnar
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, our Olympic Hero spoke about his past and present relationship with WWE Legend Brock Lesnar.
Here’s what Kurt Angle had to say about The Beast:
“It’s always been see you when I see you, because Brock isn’t much of a social butterfly so calling him and saying ‘How are you? What’s going on in your life, how’s your family?’ Brock’s not really into that stuff so if you call him, you’re most likely going to get an answering machine.
My circle of friends at one time were Brock Lesnar, Big Show, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin, we did a lot of traveling together and that was my unit. Those were my best friends, those were my guys I hung out with the most.”
Angle retired from professional wrestling after losing to Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35, but has yet to return in a non-wrestling role (except for a one-off NXT appearance), which might eventually end up happening on RAW or SmackDown in the future.
