WWE Hall of Famer and former Olympian Kurt Angle has discussed the original plans for his birthday celebration segment on SmackDown.
On the most recent edition of Smackdown (December 9), Angle appeared in his home town to celebrate his birthday.
Angle was confronted by Alpha Academy, who attempted to ruin the festivities.
Angle got revenge by teaming up with Gable Steveson to give the heel duo milk bath, in a segment that was reminiscent of a similar skit from Angle’s early days as a wrestler during the Attitude Era.
Now Angle has detailed the original plans for the segment on his podcast, the Kurt Angle Show:
“They wanted me to do the milk truck segment again. They decided to have a bunch of heels talk about me during the show, all through the show, putting me down, and ripping on me.
“Then, in the end, they were coming out to the ring because I was supposed to have my celebration, I don’t show up, and the heels are in the ring with all the birthday cake and everything, and I come in with milk truck and I go down and I spray them down.
“I tell them, ‘Hey, you can’t have cake without milk.’ It’s awesome. When I was told this, I was so excited. Because that was my favorite moment in WWE.
“Driving that milk truck into the arena in Sacramento, California. It was my number one moment, I absolutely love that I had such a great time doing it. And it was an awesome moment for me to be able to do it again.”
Angle retired from in-ring competition at WrestleMania 35, where he was defeated by Baron Corbin.
