Vince McMahon Told Kurt Angle Not To Thank Him Or WWE In Hall Of Fame Speech

No mention of McMahon or WWE

Kurt Angle has revealed Vince McMahon edited the Olympic Gold Medallist's WWE Hall Of Fame speech.

Angle was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2017 and he was originally going to thank Vince McMahon and the company within his speech, but the chairman of the board ordered him to take the line out.

"I had, 'I want to thank Vince McMahon for everything he did for me,' and he said, 'Kurt, take that out.' He said, 'I don't want anybody thanking me, I do not want a thank you. I don't even want you to thank the company. I want you to thank the fans and whoever else you want, but do not thank me or the company. Leave my name out of it.' That's how Vince is, he never wants the credit for anything," Angle revealed on The Kurt Angle Show.

Vince McMahon famously doesn't allow his name to be mentioned during the WWE Hall Of Fame Ceremony and former WWE writer RD Evans, who produced the Hart Foundation's induction speech, actually quit the company in 2019 after Bret Hart mentioned the boss.
