A keen insight into a relationship famous for comradery.
Kurt Angle and Vince McMahon have had a rocky relationship over the years. Most fans would be able to recall that Angle and Vince used to try and wrestle each other wherever they could, including an airliner. Once Angle left for IMPACT however, it seemed like their relationship soured, only for it to become whole again once Angle returned to the company for his final run. While Angle isn’t the biggest fan of his final run, he has no issues with Vince.
Kurt Angle recently joined The Two Man Power Trip podcast and discussed what his relationship with Vince McMahon is like today:
“I have a great relationship with Vince. I did when I started. It got a little shady after I left. I was pretty bitter about what transpired with my injuries and the painkiller problem. It was just a lot going on at that particular time,” Angle said.
“I stopped contact with Vince when I went to TNA. But when WWE called me back from my retirement, we left off where we started. Basically, we became close again. He was always a father figure to me, and he still was when I returned to WWE.”Kurt Angle on The Two Man Power Trip
It is nice to see the two old friends kissed and made up during Angle’s final run with the company. Angle says he has no desire to step back into the ring, so it looks like his final match has really happened. Time will tell if Angle decides to change his mind, but has stated it is unlikely.
