Kurt Angle is a terrible kisser, at least according to Stephanie McMahon.
Roughly two decades ago, there was a segment in which Angle actually kissed Stephanie in the mouth. As if the idea of the segment itself wasn’t awkward enough for Angle, he had to do with her father Vince just a few feet away from them.
Although the segment did further elevate Angle as a heel, he told Steve Austin in a recent episode of the “Broken Skull Sessions” that it was scary having to kiss Stephanie with Vince next to them. However, Angle was dealing with heat from Stephanie, who told him that the Olympic Gold Medalist kissed like a fish.
“That made me the top heel in the business. No improvisation. I go in to do it. Vince is there directing it and sitting three feet away from me. So what am I supposed to do? When we rehearsed, I said ‘Are you going to be here?’ He said yeah and I was like, ‘This is your daughter.’ He’s like, ‘It’s all right, I’m going to direct it.’ When I went in there, I was like, close your mouth and make sure your mouth is closed. So I kiss her and I did it for a long time and when I get done and we’re done with the pre-tape, Stephanie comes in and tells me, ‘You kiss like a damn fish.’ I said, ‘What do you want me to do here? Your dad’s right here. Like, I’m not going to open my mouth and kiss you for real.’ Having Vince McMahon three feet away and I’m kissing his daughter, I thought I better keep my mouth shut and kiss her hard. She thought I was a horrible kisser but Vince being there was pretty damn scary,” Angle said.
