Kurt Angle has nothing but positive things to say about working with Mae Young.
On the latest episode of The Kurt Angle Show (via AdFreeShows), the Olympic Gold Medalist discussed his first year with the company, touching on all the newsworthy moments. One such event was the February 7, 2000, edition of Raw is War where he suplexed a "pregnant" Mae Young. Angle shared the following story about that experience:
"I'll tell you a quick story. So before we headed out, we were in Gorilla position and Mae Young comes up to me and says, 'Mr. Angle, I want to tell you what I want you to do to me tonight.' I said okay, Mae. She said, 'I want you to spike my ass as hard as you can into that mat. I want you to Angle Slam me as hard as you possibly can.' I was like, 'okay, Mae, if that's what you want, I'll do it.' The crazy thing is when I was doing it I'm thinking if I slam this woman she's gonna end up coming up as dust. I mean, she was 82 years old. I'm like, what the hell am I doing slamming this woman, you know? She could literally die. Mae was just incredible because she would do whatever you asked. She would take whatever bump was necessary. She always did whatever she was told and she was always game for anything."
Mae Young was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008. She passed away in 2014 at the age of 90. Yesterday, Bully Ray shared a post wishing her a happy birthday and thanking her for helping to get him over.
