For this match, of course, Steve Austin trained and worked out a lot. So naturally, The Texas Rattlesnake was in great shape ahead of his battle against Kevin Owens.

On the latest episode of the Wives of Wrestling podcast, Giovanna Angle described the Olympic Gold Medalist’s reaction to approaching Stone Cold.

Kurt Angle’s wife mentioned, “He [Kurt Angle] felt weird about that for a second because he said he was getting flashbacks. You don’t go up to people while they’re getting ready for their match. But he felt like, ‘Damn, am I being disrespectful that I didn’t go up to him?’ He didn’t want that. So, he went up to him, and Kurt came back, and I was like, ‘Oh, how did it go?’ He was like, ‘Steve was Steve.”

Even the co-host of the show and Randy Orton’s wife, Kim Orton, saw Steve Austin pacing throughout WrestleMania backstage. Since many people were coming back and forth to meet The Texas Rattlesnake, Kurt did not understand if he should walk up to him.

What was Kurt Angle’s reaction when he met The Texas Rattlesnake?

The Olympic Gold Medalist finally gathered his courage and eventually strolled up to Steve Austin. The Texas Rattlesnake took his timeout to greet Kurt Angle as the two old pals shook hands. According to Giovanna Angle, this was almost the happiest moment of Kurt Angle’s life.

“He said something like, ‘Steve was happy to see me, and he knows he’s the man.’ Kurt was like, ‘I dig it. That’s the Steve Austin I know. God, he looks so good, and he’s going to knock the crowd out.’ Whenever I came back to Kurt, he was in a golf cart. He’s like, ‘ [Stone Cold Steve Austin] is a wrestling god, and he will always be one,’” Giovanna Angle added.
