• Kurt Angle Reveals What The WWE Writers Told Him 5 Minutes Before His Hall Of Fame Speech
During a recent edition of his podcast, Kurt Angle talked about his WWE Hall Of Fame induction and speech in 2017, and revealed what the writers told him 5 minutes before his speech.
Here’s what Angle said:
“It was so much fun. I got to relive my past, you know, doing the milk segment with two half-gallons of milk and throwing them back, and the cowboy hat. Also, singing Sexy Kurt.
The crazy thing is, 5 minutes before my speech, the writers came into my green room and said, ‘Hey, we need you to be very entertaining.’ I’m like, ‘I already have my speech ready.’
They’re like, ‘Well, is there anything entertaining in it?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s a bunch of thank yous.’ They’re like, ‘No, you got to do something entertaining.’ I said, ‘What do you want me to do?’ They said, ‘If you need anything, tell us and we’ll get it for you.’ I said, ‘I’m on in 5 minutes.’ They said, ‘We’ll get it for you before the 5 minutes is up.’ I said, ‘Well, get me two quarts of milk and a cowboy hat.’ They said, ‘That’s all you need?’ I said, ‘Yes.’
[Vince McMahon] hugged me and he said it was awesome. He said it was one of the most entertaining speeches he’s ever heard. That makes me feel really good because there have been a lot of good Hall of Fame speeches.”
