During the latest Broken Skull Sessions podcast on the WWE Network with Stone Cold Steve Austin, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle opened up about his love triangle storyline with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
While speaking about the storyline to Austin, the former WWE Champion revealed what it was like to kiss Stephanie McMahon in front of her father, and revealed that Steph once told him that he 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,”
The Broken Skull Sessions are often very insightful, and for my money, this one with Kurt Angle was actually one of the best that WWE has done in quite some time, so make sure you check it out if you haven’t already.
