The latest episode of The Kurt Angle Show featured the WWE Hall of Famer talking about the inductees to the HOF, The Steiner Brothers.
Kurt Angle talked about his encounters with Scott Steiner, and why he thought the tag team deserved the Hall of Fame nod. Angle said:
The Steiners belong in the Hall of Fame, it took forever but they finally did it. Scott was great, when I grew up, I was a fan of Scott as an amateur wrestler. He was an All-American at the University of Michigan, so I looked up to him.
Him and his brother when they went into pro wrestling, we all took a lot of pride in saying the Steiners are pro wrestlers now, they were what we were and they were a part of us and we took a lot of pride in that. I wanted to wrestle Scott, he was one of the guys I wanted to shoot for. He was an inspiration for me growing up.
In previous episodes of the podcast, Kurt Angle has spoken at length about his injury history in the WWE, talking about the numerous broken necks he’s suffered while wrestling and also revealing the two worst injuries he’s ever suffered.
Having suffered so many injuries over his career, Angle continued to speak on the podcast about the next surgery he will have to have soon. Kurt said:
I’m having my knees replaced next month. Both of them at the same time, I’m getting it over with. I’ll be in a wheelchair or a walker.
