• WWF Stars Initially Thought Kurt Angle Was Gay (Reason)
Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle made his official WWF debut at Survivor Series 1999 and went on to become one of the greatest of all time.
In his autobiography, Angle revealed that WWF stars initially thought that he was gay, because he was sharing a room with his manager.
Below is what Angle wrote:
“I wasn’t real comfortable about my decision. My manager, Dave Hawk, came with me to Stamford to ease some of the strain and advise me just in case they wanted to sign a deal.
We roomed together in Stamford and though the other guys never told me at the time, they thought we were gay.
Dave would run errands for me. It’s funny as hell to think back on it, because Dave was running around doing everything for me there. He’d make protein shakes. He’d rub down my neck. He was doing my laundry.
He just wanted me to feel better about being there because I was pretty uncomfortable about it. At the same time, he was trying to work the Ostrim deal with the World Wrestling Federation.
So everybody thought Dave and I were gay, which would have come as quite a shock to my fiancée at the time, Karen, and Dave’s wife, Tracey.”
