Back in those days when kayfabe ran deep within the superstars and the wrestling business, many superstars used to stick to the initial gimmicks they were given when joining the company.

But Kurt Angle’s character developed big time, from debuting as the American Olympic Hero and nagging every superstar for not being a ‘real athlete’ to having goofy backstage segments with wrestlers like ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and Brock Lesnar.

On a recent episode of his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, the ‘Wrestling Machine’ took us down his memory lane with his hilarious backstage segment with the ‘Texas Rattlesnake’, which involved wearing a cowboy hat he further added that it is one of his “fondest” memories in the company.

“I’ve seen it so many times but it’s funny every single time I see it. Steve Austin was in the San Antonio International Airport and he saw this little tiny cowboy hat in the gift shop.”

“He said, ‘Damn, I’ve gotta get that for Kurt. I’m gonna get two bigger cowboy hats for me and Vince and make Kurt look like an idiot.’ That’s what he told me, and he brought them to TV and said, ‘I have this idea’ and he pitched it to Vince. Vince loved it. That was it. We did the cowboy hat segments and the rest is history,” Angle concluded.
