Kurt Angle revealed Vince McMahon never apologized

During the divorce promo, McMahon appeared in the ring himself to address the audience about the accusations made by his wife, Linda. She found him in a compromising position after Torrie Wilson tricked him into believing they would indulge in physical intimacy. Wilson asked her to close his eyes. When he opened them, Linda McMahon was standing in front of him.

“My wife, Linda McMahon, would have you believe that I’m a womanizer, that I’m a philanderer, a skirt chaser, even a letch. And last Monday Night, my wife conspired with WCW Torrie Wilson, and the two of them conspired against me, trying to ruin my reputation. By the way, I wasn’t gonna go that far with Torrie Wilson. I admit I may have a little lust in my heart, I may have thought about her.”

Both Kurt Angle and Paul Bromwell agree that Vince McMahon did not apologize even once, even when he accepted the lust brewing in his heart. As per Kurt, this was classic Vince McMahon.

Angle reminded that even when the odds were against him, Vince McMahon continued claiming this was a conspiracy.
