Kurt Angle Name Booker T & Sharmell Stalker Angle As "The Worst Storyline I've Ever Done"

The uncomfortable angle ran in 2005

Kurt Angle has named his WWE rivalry with Booker T and his wife, Sharmell, as the 'worst storyline I've ever done' in wrestling. 

The 2005 storyline called for Angle to become obsessed with Sharmell, with the Olympic Gold Medallist sexually harassing Booker T's wife. One match even called for Angle to pin Sharmell in a sexually provocative position, although Booker T would eventually win the feud.

Reflecting on the uncomfortable storyline, Angle believes the idea was a sot of rib from WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, but notes he considers it the worst thing he's ever done in wrestling.

Speaking during a recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show, Angle said: "I have no idea where the idea came from. Vince (McMahon) is kind of a ribber. He’ll do stuff to mess with you a little bit and shove it in your face. I think that he thought I had this fetish for black women. I like all women, white, black, Hispanic, it doesn’t matter. My wife is half Hispanic and half Italian. I think Vince thought I had this fetish for black women and he thought it would be a funny program.

"I was not comfortable by any means. I had so much respect for Booker T and Sharmell. To do that and pretend I was stalking his wife, it was the worst angle I have ever done. It was the worst storyline I’ve ever done. I did it anyway because I’ve always been a team player, but I was not comfortable doing it."

Despite his disdain for the storyline, Angle had nothing but praise for Booker T and Sharmell. 

He added: "They were incredible. Very entertaining. Sharmell never missed a spot. She was on all the time. She had great timing. Booker T is one of the best wrestlers I’ve ever got in the ring with. Those two together are unstoppable."
