“You know, Crash here working these women, he gets his butt kicked by I think, Jackie. I think she stuffed them pretty good too. She was amazing. Jackie was wrestling like a guy before women were doing that. In other words, now women, they’re actually just as good if not better than the guys. Back then, they were tested as sex effects and they would have bikini matches, wet t-shirt contests. Jackie was a wrestler. She was a badass and she proved it in the ring. She wrestled like a man back then when they weren’t doing that.”

In the same conversation, Kurt Angle discussed the time when he was working with Torrie Wilson. Angle explained that her great personality made it extremely fun and easy to work with her.
