While speaking on ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ the WWE Hall of Famer revealed that he had a different plan regarding the celebration. Something that would infuriate Triple H without going too far.
“I remember, you know, before the match, we were planning on what to do, and I didn’t know how we were going to celebrate. If we wanted to p*ss off Triple H, we had to do something that would be offensive towards him. So, I told her, ‘Why don’t we hug each other, fall down and roll around the mat. You know, just roll together while we were holding each other.”
Stephanie however, had other plans. This confused Angle, who admitted that he was in a tough spot.
“And she was like, ‘No, pick me up and let me wrap my legs around you and celebrate. And I was like, ‘Oh, sh**. You know, this is Triple H’s fiance, wife, whatever she was at that particular time, but, you know, it was a bit, it was confusing for me because I didn’t want to get involved with somebody, you know, who obviously had a real boyfriend or husband in the business and to do this Angle was really new to me and different. I didn’t want to p*ss anyone off. It was a really difficult spot to be in.”
The feud would go on to become one of the top angles in the WWE with Angle finally being taken down by the Game at Unforgiven.
