WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle had a tremendous career in WWE as he shot to superstardom within the first year of being with the company. He made a change to the pro wrestling world back in 1998 and has never looked back since then.
The Olympic Gold Medalist recently spoke on the Pat McAfee Show, where Kurt Angle talked about his career in WWE. He revealed an important piece of advice that was given to him by Vince McMahon when Angle began his WWE career.
McMahon advised him to slow down in his matches. Even The Undertaker, The Rock, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin advised him the same. However, Angle did not listen to the advice as he wanted to continue to be intense.
“Vince McMahon talked to me about it, told me I need to slow down at the house shows, on televised shows. Kind of pour it on for the pay-per-views and TVs but try to take it easy. I don’t have any — I can’t do anything half-assed so everything has to be completely 120 percent intense. That’s just the way I am and even Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, Triple H, they told me, ‘You need to slow down’ and I just, I couldn’t. I couldn’t do it. I had to continue to be intense, technical. I wanted to be the best wrestler, including pro wrestler on the planet.”
