One particular meme that has become popular online features a video of Kurt Angle giving a peculiar stare. The meme is often used to showcase unfortunate events and is accompanied by humorous captions.

In a recent episode of “The Kurt Angle Show” podcast, the wrestler admitted that he doesn’t quite understand the meme and how it became so viral. He realized that he had become the subject of the joke in the meme.

“I don’t know why, like, I know that that video, you know, it’s kind of a weird-looking face, but for some strange reason everybody caught on and wanted to throw out some memes, and I was the butt of the joke, I guess,” said Kurt Angle.

Kurt Angle reveals his reason for joining WWE

Kurt Angle has attributed his inspiration to pursue a career in wrestling to a WWE Hall of Famer. In 1996, Angle declined a 10-year contract offered by WWE, but he eventually signed with the company in 1998. He made remarkable progress and was promoted to the main roster by the end of the following year. Angle became a regular on WWE television and faced off against the biggest names in the company, eventually becoming the World Champion.

In a recent episode of his podcast, “The Kurt Angle Show,” the wrestling icon shared his memories of working with Stone Cold Steve Austin in late 2000, shortly after Austin’s recovery from a severe neck injury. Angle praised Austin, stating how much he had learned from the Texan wrestler during their collaboration.

“So he enabled me to help start; by letting my mind start, the motor in my head started moving. So this was good because Steve was teaching me how to structure matches and put matches together.”

“Because he could have done it all on his own, but he wanted me to do it too. And what he was doing was helping me learn. And that was a big asset. That’s why I loved working with Stone Cold and knowing that—but Steve was so good in the ring.” Kurt Angle added.

Angle reflected on his choice to join WWE back in 1998, stating that it was primarily due to Austin, who made the decision. As an Olympic gold medalist, it was an honor for him to work alongside Austin in person.

“It was a complete honor, again, to be in the ring with Stone Cold Steve Austin. I was so mesmerized when I got in the ring with the Rock, but when I got in the ring with Stone Cold—don’t forget, he’s the reason why I joined WWE, right? So I was like a superfan of Stone Cold. So it was a huge honor to be inside that ring with him,” Kurt further added.
