Kurt Angle Comments On Vince McMahon Retiring

Kurt Angle conducts the crowd

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has offered his thoughts on Vince McMahon retiring, commenting “everyone makes mistakes.”

Vince McMahon’s retirement still has the wrestling world talking. The latest personality to add his name to the conversation is Kurt Angle.

The former World Champion may not have always seen eye-to-eye, the pair famously fell out when Angle left WWE in 2006, but he was full of praise for his former boss.

Speaking to Bleacher Report’s Graham Matthews, Angle revealed that he spoke to McMahon following his announcement, describing the former Chairman as a “father figure.”

“I text him five days ago when he decided to retire. I said, ‘Love you, Vince.’ I didn’t want to go into detail, what happened, this and that. He said, ‘I love you too.’ That’s all we said to each other. Vince has always been kind of a father figure to me. We did have a falling out in 2006, but we mended that in 2017 and I love the guy to death. He’s such a great individual. We all make mistakes as human beings and Vince is no different, but he’s an excellent individual.”

Despite the combination of Triple H, Nick Khan and Stephanie McMahon taking over the reigns, Angle believes that Vince McMahon will still be involved.

“They’re making adjustments. It is sad to see Vince gone. He’s what made the WWE tick. He always was the guy, he will continue to be the guy, regardless of whether he’s there or not. I’m not worried about the company, I am a little bit concerned that Vince isn’t going to be there. I have all the faith in the world that Stephanie and Triple H are going to be able to carry that company.

I honestly believe, I don’t know if I should say this or not, but I think Vince is going to be behind the scenes. I don’t think he’s ever going to let go of the product. He will send messages to Triple H and Stephanie and make sure that he’s involved. No doubt about it. I believe that in my mind.”
