Kurt Angle Explains Why Vince McMahon “Loved” Bizarre Kiss My A** Club Segments

Kurt Angle

WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has commented on WWE Chairman Vince McMahon’s love of “immature sh*t” and the notorious Kiss My Ass Club.

The night after Survivor Series 2001 should have been a cause for celebration in the then-WWF as Vince McMahon’s squad had vanquished The Alliance and sent in WCW and ECW into the history books. But on a night where Ric Flair made his return to the company, something else was formed – The Vince McMahon Kiss My Ass Club.

Alliance Commissioner William Regal was the first esteemed member as he puckered up to save his job after turning his back on McMahon’s company. But other members were soon forcibly joining the Englishman including infamously long-time announcer Jim Ross.

Kurt Angle and The Undertaker were responsible for getting Ross to kiss the boss where the sun doesn’t shine and speaking about the incident on The Kurt Angle Show [available early and ad-free at AdFreeShows.com], the Olympic gold medallist revealed that he had wanted no part of the situation:

“It is. I could never get used to it. You know, Vince was like a big kid. He always wanted to do immature sh*t, and this is one of them. You know, Vince loved the ‘Kiss my Ass’ club. He did it all too frequently, probably way too much at this particular time. There was a lot of ass-kissing at this particular time. Vince absolutely loved it. He was one funny guy.”

“The whole time, I don’t want to do this. I have way too much respect for JR; he doesn’t deserve this. This is crap. I really did. I didn’t feel comfortable at all doing it. I was divided about it, and I did let Vince McMahon know that. You know, Vince McMahon wanted to do this. This is what you have to do when you are a wrestler; you have to listen to your boss.”

Former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. recently discussed McMahon’s eccentricities and recalled the time McMahon had two WWE Superstars barking like dogs at one another.
