• WWE Hall Of Famer Comments On His 7 Hour Wrestling Feud With Vince McMahon
During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle talked about his 7 hour wrestling feud with Vince McMahon on an airplane.
Below is what Angle said:
“I remember when [Vince] wanted to wrestle me on an airplane, and we had a 7 hour wrestling feud that just kept going on and on.
He would jump on me and we’d wrestle, and I’d get him to the ground and he’d say, ‘Okay, okay let me up,’ and he’d go back and sit down and then 10 minutes later he’d jump on me again.
It was a long plane ride and it was just Vince drinking wine and wrestling me. I’ll never forget at one point, the flight attendant came back and said ‘If you guys don’t stop he’s going to ground this plane and you guys are going to get kicked off’. And Vince said to him ‘Tell the pilot to go f himself, I’ll buy the f-ing plane.’
That’s just Vince, he likes to have fun and he likes to be challenged at every aspect of his life. He’s not just a very responsible owner of one of the biggest companies in the world, he’s a big kid, he likes to have fun, and he likes competition.
I remember Terri Runnels came up to me and said ‘Hey, I have something personal to ask you could you meet me in the back?’ And I thought this is weird why would she want me to meet her in the back? I get up to go to the back and Vince jumps up from the seats and jumps on me and we start wrestling again. It was non ending.
When we were landing the plane, right when we touched ground, Chris Jericho was sitting behind me and said ‘Kurt look in the aisle’ and I looked in the aisle and Vince was army crawling to jump on me again. He wasn’t going to quit until this plane was landed and we got off it. It was a long trip, I didn’t get any sleep and Vince had the time of his life.
He never took me down, no. If he claims he does he’s lying. I don’t think he would do that but let me tell you this: Vince is one tough son of a gun. He likes to be challenged.
He’s one of those guys who would go up to Mike Tyson and say ‘Punch me as hard as you can’ because he wants to feel it. He’s that kind of individual. He wants to experience the best. Vince is a rare breed.”
