Kurt Angle has detailed a rib from Vince McMahon that was turned into a storyline on WWE TV.
During his time as Raw General Manager in 2017, Kurt Angle became involved in a storyline that involved the revelation he had an illegitimate son who also happened to be a member of the roster on the red brand. It was eventually revealed that his offspring was American Alpha’s Jason Jordan.
Back in 2005, he had been involved in another plotline that saw him stalking and harassing Booker T’s wife Sharmell. As it turns out, the two programs were actually linked through an odd source.
Speaking on his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, the WWE Hall of Famer said that Vince McMahon had become aware of Angle having dated African American women in the past. Seemingly, this was enough for McMahon to try to work that fact into storylines as a rib on the Olympic Gold Medallist.
“But I’m going to tell you this. Up front, right now, I’m going to tell the whole world what’s going on. Vince McMahon caught wind that I dated a couple of African American women in my past, just a couple. And about 17 years ago, he had me do a program with Booker T and Sharmell, where I was stalking Sharmell, Booker T’s wife. And now it’s Jason Jordan.
“So Vince likes to take ribs and turn them into storylines. He just has this crazy, weird personality, and he just wanted to kind of rub it in my face, ‘Hey, I know what’s going on in your life; we’re going to make this into a storyline.’ And he was persistent; he wasn’t going to let this thing die. It was going to keep going.”
