Kurt Angle reached the pinnacle of his sport of amateur wrestling in 1996 when he captured an Olympic gold medal at the 1996 Games in Atlanta. Little did he know at the time that his wrestling career was going to go on for decades to come as joined the pros.
Angle debuted for WWE in 1999 and enjoyed a successful seven years with the company where he won everything there was to win including the King of the Ring crown, the European Title, the Intercontinental Title, the WWE Tag Team Championship, the World Heavyweight Title, and the WWE Championship on four separate occasions.
When his time in the company came to an end under something of a cloud in 2006, Kurt Angle was not out of the ring for long. He soon debuted in TNA where he spent the majority of the next decade, sharing the ring with the likes of AJ Styles, Sting, and Samoa Joe. During his time in the company Angle was even a part of Hulk Hogan’s final-ever wrestling match in 2012.
Kurt Angle Names His “Number One Moment In WWE Or Anywhere”
Speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, the Olympic Hero discussed the one moment that stands out from his career above all others. And for Angle, despite all the championships and titles, nothing tops Milk-o-Mania running wild:
“That’s my number one moment in WWE or anywhere, any wrestling promotion I’ve been a part of. The milk truck incident was the coolest thing in the world. I was so grateful that Brian Gewirtz came up with that idea.”
“He copied Stone Cold’s beer truck incident, and it was excellent. I really loved it and dowsing down Stone Cold Steve Austin and Stephanie with milk was the coolest thing in the world. I mean, I had the whole Alliance in that ring and I’m spraying them down with milk.”
“It’s actually food-coloured white water, but they put food colouring in the water. But the milk jugs and cartons were real but that’s another story about the aeroplane ride that night.”
