Kurt Angle Talks Vince Wanting Him To Debut As A Heel, Roman Reigns, The Milk Truck & More

WWE Raw GM & Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle recently spoke to Washington’s Top News and covered many subjects. Here are some highlights from the interview:

How The Milk Truck Was One Of The Best Moments Of His Career:

“It just said a thousand words without having to say anything,” Angle said. “It was a spinoff of Austin’s beer truck years prior. It really worked out to my favor and it really helped my character a lot. … That milk truck in Sacramento, California, was probably the best moment I had, including the wrestling.”

Vince McMahon wanting him to debut as a heel:

“I disagreed with him. I told him, ‘It’s not gonna work, I won a gold medal [with] a broken freakin’ neck! People are gonna love me!’ He said, ‘No, they’re gonna hate your guts.’ He was right.”

His Thoughts On Roman Reigns:

“I love him. The issue with Roman is he was utilized and pushed way too fast. When you skip the U.S. Title, Intercontinental Title, the King of the Ring and go right to the top, fans don’t like that. … Half the fans love him; half the fans hate him. Same with [John] Cena. When Cena came in, Vince pushed the hell out of him and fans were like, ‘Gosh, dang. This guy’s invincible. I hate him!’ … If Vince waits it out a bit, fans will start to accept [Roman Reigns], and if they don’t, then turn him heel.”

His Hall of Fame Speech:

“I had a lot of fun with it,” Angle said. “In recent years, a lot of the speeches were pretty serious [and] they wanted a different flavor this year. They wanted old-school Kurt Angle, so they asked me if I had any ideas and I came up with that little bit of entertainment. … I actually requested the milk truck that I could drive into the arena! But [WWE Chairman] Vince McMahon said it was a little bit too much.”
