Vince McMahon was the Chairman of WWE and has been arguably the biggest name in the pro wrestling business. He has a method to his madness that only a few people can truly comprehend. He also ordered a WWE Hall of Famer to intimidate Hulk Hogan.
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is certainly one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever graced the squared circle. He has done it all when it comes to being a professional wrestler.
While speaking during a recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle recalled how Vince McMahon ordered him to intimidate Hulk Hogan, prior to their 2002 King Of The Ring match.
“Vince told me beforehand, ‘I want you to get out of your seat and put your nose this close to Hulk Hogan’s nose.’ I am like, ‘Why do you want me to do this? It’s Hulk Hogan.’ What he’s trying to do is intimidate Hulk, and you can’t intimidate Hulk Hogan, he’s a freaking bad*ss…But the crazy thing is, Vince wanted me to get out of my seat and get real close to his face like I was threatening him – it was ridiculous.”
The intimidation backfired as Angle ended up winning the match, with Hulk Hogan tapping out to the Ankle Lock. Angle also believes WWE doesn’t give him enough credit for his work. We’ll have to see what the future holds for Kurt Angle.
