• WWF Legend Says Vince McMahon Always Wanted Him To Be A Heel
On an episode of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle revealed that Vince McMahon always wanted him to stay a heel for most of his WWF/E run.
Here’s what the former WWF Champion said:
“The reason was Vince McMahon always wanted me to end up being a heel. He really just loved me as a heel. He enjoyed watching me as a heel. He always put me in a situation where I would become the heel.”
The only times during his original 1999-2006 WWF/E run that Angle didn’t work as a heel were in 2001 during the Invasion storyline, from 2003 until early 2004 and briefly in 2006 before he went to TNA.
In addition, Kurt also spent his entire 2017-2019 WWE run as a babyface.
