Jon Alba asked The Hall Of Famer about his induction and career on his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show.

To this, Kurt smiled and answered, “It was so much fun, and I got to relive my past, you know, doing the milk segment with two half-gallons of milk and throwing them back and the cowboy hat. Also, singing Sexy Kurt.”

Angle revealed that he changed his speech minutes before going on stage because WWE writers asked him to make it entertaining.

Because of this push from writers, Kurt Angle came up with the milk-drinking skit and Sexy Kurt within five minutes.

Kurt was pleased with his speech and credited the writers for helping it become memorable. He said, “If those writers didn’t come in and told me that five minutes before, my speech wouldn’t have been entertaining at all.

The host of the Q&A, Jon Alba, asked Kurt if Vince McMahon said anything to him after the speech. Angle replied, “He said it was one of the most entertaining speeches he’s ever heard. That makes me feel good because there have been a lot of good speeches.”
