Vince McMahon’s Reaction To Infamous Shane McMahon & Kurt Angle Bout

Kurt Angle has revealed Vince McMahon’s reaction to his and Shane McMahon’s vicious Street Fight at WWE King of the Ring 2001.

At the 2001 edition of King of the Ring, Kurt Angle and Shane McMahon went to war in a brutal Street Fight that took its toll on both men.

The most memorable part of the match saw Angle trying to suplex Shane McMahon through a glass panel that was part of the stage set.

The Olympic gold Medallist failed on the first attempt, with McMahon simply bouncing off the panel and landing on his neck, but the second time the glass shattered as McMahon went through it.

To get back to the stage, Angle tried to suplex McMahon through another panel, with it again failing on the first attempt. Angle was then able to throw him headfirst through the glass instead.

Discussing the match on the latest edition of The Kurt Angle Show (available early on AdFreeShows), the WWE Hall of Famer recalled that Vince McMahon was less than impressed at the pair.

“Usually when I come back, he says great match and he gives me a hug. [After KOTR] He didn’t say anything. He didn’t say ‘You had a horrible match.’

“I think he was just p*ssed. And I think he was a little stunned at what occurred in that match that Shane took a rabid beating. And I think he was really concerned for his son.

“He wasn’t happy with either one of us is what I’m saying.”
