• “He’s the kind of guy I’d want my daughter to date” – Kurt Angle On WWE Legend
During a recent episode of his podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle talked about John Cena and his backstage behavior.
Below is what the former WWF Champion said:
“He wasn’t brash or quiet, but he got along with everybody. Like I said before, he was really respectful and greeted everybody when he came into the room. You know, he was just a nice kid.
You know what? He’s almost as close to perfect as there is, to be honest with you.
He’s the kind of guy I’d want my daughter to date (laughs).”
Angle also recalled his 1st ever conversation with Cena:
“It was the day I wrestled him. His debut match. He came up to me very respectfully and said, ‘Hello, Mr. Angle, I’m John Cena. It’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m going to be working with you tonight. It’s going to be an honor to get into the ring with you.’
Very good kid. Very respectful. I absolutely loved him from the get-go.”
