“It Was So Nerve Racking,” Kurt Angle Remembers Kissing Stephanie McMahon In WWE

Kurt Angle was one of those luckiest guys from the non-PG era of the WWE who got to feature in romantic angles with one of his bosses. Back in the days, Stephanie McMahon used to be an eye-candy diva just like the other female talents of the WWE locker room. Mostly, they were used for love angles, valet reasons, or skin show-off purposes.

Stephanie McMahon was no different despite the fact that she used to be Vince McMahon’s daughter. Kurt Angle had an amazing first year in WWE as he competed against several top Superstars, including Triple H. Back then, Hunter has just begun to bloom her relationship with Steph and WWE took the opportunity to book them in a love triangle in 2000 alongside the Olympic Gold Medalist.

During one of the segments from that ongoing storyline, Kurt Angle had to kiss Stephanie McMahon in a backstage segment. While speaking on his podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer talked about how it felt to kiss the Billion Dollar Princess. It could have been exciting for him but then again it was Vince McMahon, himself in charge of directing the scene. Hence the veteran superstar ended up having a terrifying experience on that night.

Vince McMahon made things awkward for Kurt Angle

“It was so nerve racking. Not only that, the director was Vince McMahon. He was three feet away in a chair. I’m kissing Vince McMahon’s daughter right in front of him, of course I didn’t want to slip her the tongue,” the host of The Kurt Angle Show podcast noted.

“I didn’t know what to do, I was so nervous about it because Vince McMahon is just standing there looking and he’s wide eyed like ‘I want to see this.’ I was like ‘holy crap, this is so weird.’ It was a great moment for me because it did so much for me but it was really uncomfortable.”

Kurt Angle started working as a backstage producer in the WWE once his wrestling career was over at Wrestlemania 35 in 2019 after coming up short in a match against Baron Corbin. But then he was furloughed from his job amid the COVID-19 budgets cuts within the WWE.

Then WWE proceeded to offer him a role and that’s to manage Riddle who made his main roster debut, last year. But Kurt Angle has been focused on expanding his own business and hence he decided to stay away from signing with WWE or AEW.

Roman Reigns Reveals Stephanie McMahon Was Unhappy On Getting Speared At WWE Wrestlemania 32

WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is on top of the WWE, at this point who often claims to be in charge of the company. He was present on a recent episode of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast with Jimmy Traina where he discussed having more creative freedom in his promos. This was the reason he was allowed to talk missionary position during a SmackDown promo.

Roman Reigns’ current heel character has many fans wondering whether this will eventually lead into a match with his cousin Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at an upcoming edition of WrestleMania. While it’s not impossible to see Reigns mentioned that there’s a lot of factors attached to the planning so that the match could actually become a reality.

Moving further in an interview, the Tribal Chief was reminded of an off-topic. In the main event of WrestleMania 32 in 2016, Roman Reigns defeated Triple H to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. On his way to the win, Reigns hit Stephanie McMahon with a Spear inside the ring.

Traina and his niece wondered whether the Billion Dollar Princess was happy about digesting that spear and what the backstage dynamic could have looked like. Roman Reigns was all praise about one of his bosses in the WWE offering a sporting attitude on that Grandest Stage of Them All to make his crowning moment look even sweeter.

Roman Reigns discussed his spear on Stephanie McMahon

“She took it like a champ. She did a great job, and I didn’t really pull any of the physicality out. She took a full-on spear, and that’s how you should do it in the main event of WrestleMania.

She was obviously a little bit sore and not very happy about that, but I think everybody after a main event of a WrestleMania is ecstatic of going through that process, and the adrenaline rush of the performance and then also celebrating a phenomenal moment with the live audience, everybody watching at home,” Roman Reigns added.

I’ll say she wasn’t ecstatic, but I think she was happy with the moment, to be a part of that.”

Stephanie McMahon was a big part of the storyline process between Triple H and Roman Reigns, heading into that WrestleMania match. Hence, her digesting that spear has a great pay-off to the angle.

Apart from that Roman Reigns’ spear, Stephanie McMahon took another bump at WrestleMania 2017, the very next year when her husband Triple H competed in a match against Seth Rollins. The former Shield member shoved The Game into Stephanie, forcing her to go through a table. All in all, someway Steph got to be key parts of those mega Mania matches, creating some memorable moments.

WWE Legend Thinks People Are Jealous Of Triple H For Marrying Stephanie McMahon

Triple H is the innovator of NXT shtick in the WWE which is said to be the future investment to save the WWE programming for good. At a time, when Vince McMahon’s business-oriented decisions are becoming negative from fans’ perspective, the black-and-yellow brand is retaining the old-school perspective to a certain extent and thereby the attention of the fans.

But it appears Triple H fails to receive the needed acknowledgment that he deserves. The fact that he is married to The Boss’ daughter works in a negative way for him. WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is a veteran in the pro wrestling world who made a name for himself being a commentator in WWE and delivering some of the most iconic moments in the company’s history.

JR has worked with several big names in WWE who is also the man behind many of their gimmicks. Thus, he obviously knows a lot about Triple H who was seen as a controversial figure back in the day for different reasons. While speaking on Grilling JR Podcast, Jim Ross discussed The Game has to deal with disrespect, mainly due to the fact that he has married Stephanie McMahon.

Triple H doesn’t get the credits for his spouse?

Ross also stated that the head-honcho doesn’t get his due credits over the fact that he’s married to Stephanie McMahon,

“People get pissed at Triple H because they’re jealous and because of who he married. Maybe they believe that he would not have been such a success if he had not married the boss’s daughter. I totally disagree with that. You can’t tell me the wedding vows made him a great worker, he made himself a great worker but he’s not given enough credit for it because of the jealousy thing and the anti-McMahon backlash at times. He’s never given credit sometimes for his hard work and his dedication to the business.” (Quotes courtesy Wrestling INC)

Despite what some people or fans think of Triple H, he will continue to remain an integral part of WWE television. He is also the front-runner to take things over when Vince McMahon will be forced to step down from the Chairman’s position, down the road.

As for Stephanie McMahon, she is also one of the head-honchos of the WWE who has the official post of Chief Brand Officer. In most of the international media calls or company representations, she is the one to talk on behalf of the brand. Plus, she also is one of the prime shareholders of the WWE.

Stephanie McMahon looked forward to fans returning to shows as she noted that WWE has been missing their “soundtrack, missing the shared experience, missing the visceral and emotional reaction that makes every bump and bruise worth it.” This is what her message, dedicated to WWE Universe, was,

“For over a year and a half, WWE has been missing the lifeblood of our shows, our fans. No matter how hard we tried, never going off the air and continuing to produce our live content; investing in new technologies and bringing nearly one million people around the world into our shows virtually, it just wasn’t the same. We were missing our soundtrack, missing the shared experience, missing the visceral and emotional reaction that makes every bump and bruise worth it.”

Stephanie McMahon Meets WWE TV Partners For New Contents

Stephanie McMahon acts as a global face on behalf of WWE whenever the company requires her to. As reported earlier, the company is recently dealing with low TV ratings for both Raw and Smackdown. Raw scored the lowest viewership ever while Smackdown drew the second-lowest viewership since moving to FOX in October 2019. Now, WWE is prepping up to pull things back.

WWE needs to figure out how to pull up their viewerships and ratings, in a big way. Stephanie McMahon is apparently getting involved in the process as the company is currently listening to their network partners for suggestions. This is definitely not the first time that the network heads are getting involved in the creative process as they want to keep viewership steady, all the time.

In the latest, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon is reportedly scheduled to meet with one of WWE’s TV partners by the end of this month, according to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Wrestling Podcast. The meeting is being held so that the network can pitch ideas for newer WWE content.

Stephanie McMahon will be meeting either FOX/USA Network officials

It wasn’t clarified whether Stephanie McMahon will be meeting USA Network officials for Raw or FOX officials from Smackdown. But the discussions will be held regarding more productive content,

“I don’t know which network it was but somebody told me that Steph has a meeting with one of the networks at the end of the month for pitched ideas from the network. I don’t know if this is a common thing that they do or if this is a regular thing but I know that the networks are pitching ideas.”

Networks like FOX and USA/NBC Universal have pitched various ideas over the years, including the introduction of WWE 24/7 Title and RAW Dark, but it appears that the pitches are becoming more common. More on the newer pitches should be available when Stephanie McMahon is done with the meeting.

In recent times, reports have surfaced mentioning that WWE had plans for more specially-themed TV shows over the next several months. Ideas such as King of the Ring and Old School RAW, Raw Roulettes were considered. Both FOX and USA/NBCU were a big part of the push for more themed shows.

WWE Wrestlemania 38 Reportedly Becoming A Two-Night Event?

WWE has confirmed that Wrestlemania 38 will take place in Texas. Next year, the grandest event goes even bigger when it returns to the AT&T Stadium after six years. The company has remained tight-lipped about the format of the show that is whether it will be a two-night event or not. This tradition was introduced after WWE was forced to do WrestleMania 36 at the Performance Center in front of 0 fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This format was retained for the 37th edition, earlier this year as speculations continue around Wrestlemania 38. The two-night format brings some sort of specialty to the show that is acceptable to the fans. In 2021, the fans were in attendance at the Raymond James Stadium in Orlando, Florida to make it a grand success. It seems like the same thing will go down, next year, too.

According to a report from Fightful Select, two-night ‘Mania has been a super-hit among the backstage staff and wrestlers alongside the fans. The fans don’t get tired by the time the main event arrives which is a good thing.

Also, many believe that the reason WWE didn’t announce a date for WrestleMania 38 is that they are still nurturing the idea of doing a two-night event, again,

“It was also speculated among talent that WWE avoiding the announcement of a certain date for 2022 WrestleMania has the company considering continuing the two night method.”

WWE intends to pull a huge number of fans for both the nights of WrestleMania (which would be more than 70-80,000 at the AT&T Stadium). So they don’t really have any reason to go back to doing one-night WrestleManias again since they can simply double the ticket sales with the two-night event option.

In contrary to these reports, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon recently told Scott Fishman of TV Insider that Wrestlemania 38 will be going back to the original format,

“We want to maximize the value. The two nights are unique to the times [pandemic]. We have plans to go back to one night for future WrestleMania events, but of course we will see what happens this year,” said Stephanie.

“We want to deliver the best possible value we can for our fans who are hopefully able to attend and for those watching all around the world.”

The ‘Stephanie McMahon Slap, She Means It,’ Says Former WWE Commentator

Stephanie McMahon has an illustrious history of losing her temper while being on TV. Over the years, we have seen how obnoxious of a character she could be when it comes to TV. Most of the time she reflects frustration by slapping the one who would be standing next to her. Several WWE Superstar and even his parents have gone through with those legit shots in the middle of the ring.

Former WWE commentator Tom Phillips worked in the company from 2012 up until his release in May. His work ethic received praise from both fans and Superstars. Phillips also possesses some memories from working in the biggest professional wrestling promotion of the world and it definitely includes the time when he was slapped by Stephanie McMahon.

This incident took place on the December 21, 2015, episode of Monday Night RAW, Slammy Award Night which ended with Dean Ambrose defeating Sheamus in a Steel Cage Match. At that point, Vince and Stephanie McMahon were in the middle of a feud against Roman Reigns and his former Shield brethren Ambrose following the annual TLC pay-per-view event.

The week before Roman Reigns won the WWE Championship from Sheamus and Stephanie McMahon was irate about the fact. The Big Dog then interfered with Ambrose vs. Sheamus steel cage match, helping Ambrose to win. The Billion Dollar Princess was fully in character who took out frustrations by slapping Tom Phillips a few times.

While speaking on the Sports Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch, Phillips was asked if he was ever involved in any physical incidents during his WWE tenure. The former WWE employee was quick to mention the time he was legitimately slapped by Stephanie McMahon. For him, the WWE head-honcho tried to get it done for real rather than a scripted instance.

The 'Stephanie McMahon Slap, She Means It,' Says Former WWE Commentator 81

“I never took a conventional bump in the ring but there was one. I think it was before Christmas in 2015, I think it was the Slammys, which was also coinciding with RAW, and Stephanie McMahon just slapped me, for lack of a better term. But yeah, knew about it and everything. It was so much fun.

It seems weird but Corey Graves [Phillips’ fellow commentator] standing right off-camera at the time and just staring at me like a big brother being like, ‘Yeah, this is gonna be fun.’ It’s a rite of passage. It was great.

That was full contact. Stephanie is a wonderful human being. I have had nothing but great interactions with her, but if you ask anybody that’s taken the Stephanie McMahon slap, she means it. And that’s a good thing because it’s live, it better not look improvised.”

Stephanie McMahon continues to be an on-screen talent in the WWE who may just continue to slap more such names in the future. As for Tom Phillips, he certainly had a good run with the WWE who would now look forward to his future after getting released by the company.

Is WWE Really Prepping Up To Sell The Company?

Vince McMahon is keen to operate WWE in a way that would always be the ‘best for business.’ This is the reason why the idea of giant companies like Disney or Warner Bros was in the conversation to take over the biggest professional wrestling brand in the world. Those were fuelled up in a bigger way after the cost-cutting process across the board continued in recent times that included some top names within the company.

Overall 60 people were released from their duties. Several departments have merged together which will now be under one division, WWE Media, overseen by Kevin Dunn. The President of the company, Nick Khan also gained control in the process while the company cut a number of international heads which Khan will now take over.

This corporate restructuring witnessed the firing of several executive vice presidents as the company is eliminating “redundancies” and strengthening its bottom line. In the future, some bigger plans could be following up.

It was also noted that WWE is moving into a new headquarters from the existing one in Connecticut as they cut the workforce after looking over their staff. There are a lot of reasons behind firing so many people while but the reason behind those were mentioned as COVID-19 related “budget cuts.”

Despite the droppings in number for Raw and Smackdown viewership, WWE is raising their profits by producing content worth millions of value in terms of streaming those on Peacock. So they might just want to enter the mainstream market eventually by handing over the brand. As Vince McMahon’s days as the Chairman of the Board are numbered, perhaps the company is putting on extra efforts to secure the future.


WWE Transitioning To Mainstream Entertainment Company Like DC Or Marvel

WWE hasn’t not only got rid of the additional burden of the roster following WrestleMania 37 but also those officials who were growing pains within the company. Apparently, they want to move in a bigger direction in the upcoming months led by Vince McMahon. But President Nick Khan is also being given even more control within the company.

According to PW Insider, the Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon is giving Nick Khan more freedom to re-form the company as he wishes internally. At the end of the day, they are focused on the bigger picture and that’s to spread wings. It is also being reported that WWE is looking forward to becoming a mainstream entertainment property rather than just being a professional wrestling organization.

“We are told by a number of WWE sources that Khan has been given great power and leeway by Vince McMahon to move WWE forward into the future and prepare to bring the company towards a more mainstream entertainment property,” the source informed.

Plus, it was noted that Nick Khan envisions that the World Wrestling Entertainment could eventually become “something to similar to Marvel and DC with lots of potential crossover appeal not just for performers but the characters and WWE brand itself.”

WWE has signed a lucrative deal with Peacock

WWE’s funding has grown bigger with a huge deal with Peacock which is worth $1 billion for their streaming rights inside the United States. These high-dollar contracts might just continue to stay if the company intends to stay in the mainstream direction. Some more big steps may just follow if they want to cement their position in the popular culture landscape.

Ringside News additionally reports that the change in the Talent Relations department of the WWE was expected, for sometimes. A WWE employee said that the new head, John Laurinaitis might import his own team that should probably be a new team. Also, “Vince McMahon wants fresh eyes on the product and on management.” That being said, “most of the management from a previous era” has to be gone since they want new blood.

While “Vince wants new blood in the ranks,” Kevin Dunn is still in his position of power in productions. Bruce Prichard and John Laurinaitis will be the two other men who will hold powerful backstage positions in the foreseeable future.

Stephanie McMahon Eyeing To Bring In Cardi B For WWE Appearance

Being the Chief brand Officer of the WWE, Stephanie McMahon has to act as the brand ambassador of the company, in many ways. Starting from representing the global brand, she has to keep eye on the mainstream perspective of the WWE. Newer recruits from the entertainment industry could certainly bring in more views for the programming and this is something, she doesn’t want to miss out on.

WWE has brought in many high-profile sports and entertainment stars to their TV, in the past in a crossover into pro wrestling. Ronda Rousey was the biggest acquisition of them all who happened to be a regular star. Stephanie McMahon and Triple H had to do a lot behind those appearances.

But she might not be the only huge name that WWE had their eyes on because the Williams sisters from Tennis court could follow her. Rapper Bad Bunny is expected to make a return to the WWE following his successful Wrestlemania appearance as WWE wants to work with him, more. Also, Cardi B is under their radar, it seems.

Stephanie McMahon recently spoke to the Rich Eisen show where the idea of WWE possibly recruiting Venus and Serena Williams came up. The WWE head-honcho praised the legendary tennis-playing sisters. Then she also mentioned Cardi B as someone who would be a good fit for the company.

“From an athlete perspective, I would love to see the Williams sisters [Venus and Serena] either individually or together. There are so many incredible female and male athletes out there that I would love to bring into WWE. From a celebrity standpoint, in addition to the ones we’ve already worked with, I think it could be really cool to work with Cardi B, Stephanie McMahon noted.

She had a tweet she put out not long ago which was in reference to her name on the show. I think she’s so colorful herself and so vivacious and full of life that I think she would even bring it up a notch in WWE. I think she’d be awesome.”

Torrie Wilson namedropped her during the Raw Legends night and as a result, she was trending on Twitter. The rapper then posted a series of tweets opening up on pro-wrestling. Only time will tell whether WWE will be able to grab such a huge mainstream star under their banner.
