The Rock: Kurt Angle reveals The Great One improvised ‘a lot’

Last updated

WWE and TNA Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently took part in an ’˜Ask Kurt Anything’ session on The Olympic Gold Medalist answered several questions on the show, including one posed by a fan regarding his work with The Rock back in the early 2000s.

‘Yeah, I mean, he improvised a lot”, Kurt Angle revealed of The Rock. “So you didn’t know what he was going to say. Even when you knew what the script was, he didn’t follow the script entirely.”

“So, you didn’t know if you’re going to crack up or start crying”, Angle continued, somewhat praising The Great One but also bashing him a little in jest.

“I mean, Rock was one of the best promo guys in the business, and he is one of the most entertaining guys. You just didn’t know what he was going to say, and you had to be ready,” Kurt Angle concluded.

Angle and The Rock had a number of high profile matches in the early 2000s, including the Armageddon 2000 six-man Hell in a Cell match, the No Way Out 2001 match for the WWE Championship and amazing triple threat match featuring The Undertaker from Vengeance 2002.

Kurt Angle has also been confirmed for the new pro wrestling game from Virtual Basement. ‘The Wrestling Code’ will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X when it finally releases later this year.
