WWE legend Kurt Angle has recalled Vince McMahon’s night-time gym sessions, referring to the WWE Chairman as ‘a monster’.
On a recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show, the Olympic Champion discussed his relationship with Vince and the creative team in the early 2000s, and how McMahon in particular would call at all hours to discuss the product.
Angle went on to note that McMahon would often make contact prior to his famed nocturnal work-out sessions:
Sometimes at 1:00 in the morning, 1:30 in the morning Vince would call me and ask me if I’m okay, what I thought about the show that night. Vince, when he gets done with the show, he wraps up the show, he gets in his limo, he goes to the hotel, and then they rent out a gym in that city and Vince works out from 2:00 to 4:00 in the morning. Then he goes back to the hotel, goes to sleep from 4:30 to 6:00, and then he wakes up again. He takes an hour and a half nap and that’s it. He’s a monster. He does that every day.
It’s no secret that McMahon has long been an advocate of bodybuilding, even featuring on the cover of Muscle and Fitness magazine at the age of 69.
