Cornette said, “All right, I got a correction. But it was an innocent assumption that I made. Apparently when we talked about the rivals show between Triple H and Batista I said unfortunately, I said the young lady named Angie that he was married to (while) he’s time he was here at OVW, she had cancer, and as I said she had passed away. She’s still alive.”

It wasn’t intentional of Cornette to say this, as he wasn’t aware of the same. Angie is a fitness trainer now and is a cancer survivor. The former WWE Champion and Angie married for around years and separated in 2006.

He added, “So no, you know, is it didn’t work out apparently. She has been a 16-year cancer survivor. And just they got divorced. So she’s still around so I regret that error. I hadn’t, you know, obviously kept up closely with situation but it made me feel better to know that she wasn’t dead.”
