He wished to take this monster trying character, this Greek god, and present everybody how drained he might do it, and he did not get drained. He passed the check with flying colors. He was loopy.”
Angle speaking about being the Common Supervisor of SmackDown after WrestleMania 20:
“To be sincere with you, what occurred was that I broke my neck once more. Vince McMahon was uninterested in me breaking my neck and he did not need the followers to know, so he pretended I harm my knee and I used to be in a wheelchair,” he mentioned.
“I used to be so upset and offended with myself that lots of the promotions I used to be projecting for the expertise had been offended at me. So there have been lots of offended promotions that he was doing. However that was an actual emotion as a result of he was letting me down. I saved hurting my neck and was actually upset and confused. He was attacking different folks although not in actual life, however on display screen, the emotion he displayed was very actual. I used to be supposed to be this offended normal supervisor and I used to be.”
Angle mentioned that he was supposed to be in the film The Marine, not John Cena:
“The Marine was supposed to be my film. What occurred was Stone Chilly Steve Austin was instructed that he was going to do The Marine, the film, the first WWE film. Steve left the corporate, so Vince gave me the film,” Angle shared.
“I had it and so they weren’t certain once they had been going to shoot it. A 12 months glided by after which Vince got here up to me and mentioned, ‘Hey, hear, I need to give that Marines film to John Cena. I used to be like, ‘Why?’ He mentioned, ‘Effectively, he is turning into an upcoming star.’ I believe that is the precise time for him to make a film. I mentioned, ‘Vince, hear, that is nice. You realize, I am pleased for John. It is nice that he is going to do that film, however he actually wants to be in the ring working and I am injured. I want to take a while off from wrestling. I’d love to take six months off and make a film. That might be nice.'”
“He mentioned, ‘Effectively, I’ve made up my thoughts.’ He wasn’t mad at John. He was mad at Vince. He simply took the film away from me as a result of this new man got here alongside and, , he had a huge effect. I had a huge impact too. So I wasn’t certain why that occurred. Actually, it was the start of the tip for me for WWE. After that’s when issues began to go downhill. A few 12 months or two later, that is once I left the corporate.”
