It is needless to say that WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle and multi-time World Champion Brock Lesnar are two of the biggest names in WWE. Back in 2003, the former amateur wrestling champions wanted to test each other’s skills by legitimately grappling in a WWE ring before an event. There have been rumors that WWE Hall of Famer had legitimately beaten up Brock Lesnar during their days on the WWE SmackDown roster. ‘The Olympic Gold Medalist’ stated he had won the encounter. Over the last two decades, various stories have emerged about Angle dominating his WrestleMania 19 opponent in the shoot-wrestling contest. It seems Vince McMahon was furious with the developments. Angle had stated that Lesnar initially backed down from his challenge but later accepted the request to shoot-wrestle.
Vince McMahon reacted in a furious manner
Speaking on Rene Dupree’s “Cafe de Rene” podcast, former WWE star Basham revealed that McMahon reacted furiously when he saw Angle and Lesnar wrestling.
“They were starting to really go after it,” Basham said. “And then all of a sudden you hear Vince McMahon’s voice, ‘What the f**k are you doing? You stop with my million dollar guys. I don’t pay you to go out there and get hurt.’ He was walking down the aisle and really cut a promo on them.”
The former La Resistance member added that Vince McMahon reacted badly another time when he witnessed Daniel Puder shoot-wrestling Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin.
“Same scenario, Puder was in there with Shelton and I think it might have been Charlie, and they were doing the same s**t and then f**king Vince blew his top,” Dupree said.
