Kurt Angle shares an incident with Vince McMahon suspending a wrestler over rules

Ronda Rousey recently appeared on The Kurt Angle Show, to discuss her life and career with the Olympic Gold Medalist. During the podcast, the current SmackDown Women’s Champion opened up on her transition from MMA to professional wrestling. 

Rousey shared details of her early training days with former WWE Star, Brian Kendrick. However, it was when she admitted she is yet to understand some of the rules and etiquette of pro-wrestling.

Kurt Angle recalled a moment in which Vince McMahon suspended a superstar for breaking a universal pro-wrestling rule.

The 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist said, “When you say thank you, and the person says You’re welcome. That’s usually the proper way to say it. But in pro wrestling, when you say thank you, the other person is supposed to say thank you back. So it’s like, Thank you. No, thank you.”

He added, “I was told one time a wrestler told Vince. Vince said, ‘Hey, thank you for the match tonight.’ He said ‘you’re welcome.’ Vince actually took him off the roster for about a month. Basically suspended him for a month because he didn’t say thank you (to him), he said, ‘You’re welcome.”

Who did Ronda Rousey initially train with in pro wrestling?

The recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show was all about Ronda Rousey. The ‘Baddest Woman on the Planet’ joined the show to discuss some of her favorite and memorable moments in her WWE career so far. 

Unlike most WWE Superstars, Ronda Rousey did not train at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. In fact, she trained with former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Brian Kendrick in California.

Rousey gave Brian Kendrick complete credit for her impressive in-ring work. Although Ronda Rousey has an extensive background in Judo, MMA and BJJ, pro-wrestling is a different ballgame altogether. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

However, the former UFC champ has proved to the world that she’s no ordinary woman. She can do and achieve whatever she puts her heart and mind to.
