During this week’s “Gold Medal Q&A,” Kurt Angle discussed potentially writing a second book and talked about how he felt working with Hulk Hogan in 2002.
Kurt Angle was asked if he was going to write a second book:
“The first book, I probably shouldn’t have done it at that particular time. The reason why I did is because nobody else would,” he said.
“Stone Cold, Undertaker, The Rock, nobody wanted to do a book back then. Vince McMahon came to me and said, ‘I know you just started in the business but you can write about your Olympic career.’ I was like, ‘Well, shouldn’t I wait a few years and have my pro wrestling career laid out a little bit longer before I start a book?’ He said, ‘No, just talk about your Olympic career and what you’ve done up until now.’”
“That was in like 2000 when I wrote the book. So I only got my rookie year in that book. But what I’ve done is I have a documentary coming out. It’s going to be on A&E on August 28th. After that documentary, I’m going to start my book again.”
On working with Hulk Hogan in 2002:
“I’m not going to lie to you. The guy was awesome,” Kurt shared.
“At that time, he was like 55 or 56 years of age. He was up there and he was still going strong. I mean, he was a little slower than he usually was in his prime of his career, but he still had it. We had some great matches, especially that match where I wore the headgear and the wig. I think it was King of the Ring in 2002.”
“I had a great match with Hulk Hogan. I actually loved working with him.”
