The wrestlers were chanting Joe’s name when it was over.
– Regarding the backstage argument between Kurt Angle and John Gaburick on the UK tour, one person described it as not even an argument or Angle blowing up, but Angle just expressing confusion because he thought his booking didn’t make any sense.
