• Kurt Angle Recalls Vince McMahon Wanting To Fight Him Before His WWE Release

During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recalled Vince McMahon wanting to fight him before his release from WWE back in 2006.

Below is what Angle said:

“I told him when we had the meeting, ‘We need to talk because I’m not doing well.’ So he pulls out about five typed pages of text messages and phone call messages that I left him. I’m reading them it says ‘Vince I’m gonna beat the sh*t out of you when I see you’, ‘Vince you better answer my call or I’m gonna kick your a$$.’ Really crazy stuff.

At the time I was taking painkillers and somas and I would black out and here I am texting Vince and he showed me all these and I’m like, ‘Oh my god I actually said this stuff.’

He stood up and he took his jacket off and he says, ‘you wanna kick my a$$? Let’s go right now.’ I looked at him and went, ‘Oh my god I can’t believe Vince McMahon wants to beat my a$$.’

This guy’s been my father figure for seven years and I had too much respect for him to stand up, but he wanted to go. I left the room and I came back and I broke down and said ‘Vince I can’t do this anymore, I need you to release me’ and he did.

Sometimes I wish that he didn’t [release me], but it had to be done to save my life and I know I wasn’t representing WWE the way Vince needed me to.

He has a publicly traded company. He has a liability on his hands with the broken neck, the painkillers, whatever else.

It was time for me to leave, at least momentarily.”
