Vince McMahon has a reputation for not backing down from a fight. That’s exactly what happened when WWE Chairman Vince McMahon decided to call Kurt Angle out for misbehaving with him in order to get his release.
Kurt Angle revealed that after being denied a release in 2006, McMahon almost got into a physical conflict with him when he sent him threatening texts. Angle discussed a time when his unpredictable behavior got him into serious conflict with McMahon.
The Olympian admitted to leaving unpleasant texts and voicemails for Vince McMahon on his podcast The Kurt Angle Show. Angle was forced to read these derogatory comments aloud during a meeting in Stamford by the WWE CEO.
Despite the fact that Angle had discovered his error when reading the texts, it was too late. McMahon was salivating at the prospect of a brawl with him.
“I’m reading the text conversations, and Vince says to me, ‘You want to beat my ass?'” He jumps up, removes his jacket, and declares, “Let’s fight right now.” My employer, the man I look up to as a father figure, wants to beat the crap out of me. I glance across the room and Shane is halfway out of his seat, which means if I stand up, Shane will jump me,” Angle explained.

What did Kurt Angle text Vince McMahon?
Angle said that he was in poor health at the time and wasn’t completely aware of what he was doing. Angle’s text messages to McMahon included some serious threats.
“I was like, ‘What the hell are these?'” says the narrator. They say, ‘Vince, I’m going to kick your ass when I meet you,’ and I’m reading them. ‘Vince, if you don’t call me back, I’m going to knock the crap out of you,’ Angle said.
