In 2005, Kurt Angle and King of the Ring, Booker T had a feud to follow for WWE. The storyline had the Olympic Gold Medalist as a “deranged human being”. On the other hand, Booker T and Sharmell were shown as on-screen lovers. During his podcast The Kurt Angle Show in November 2021, Kurt Angle expressed his disdain for the storyline and said Vince McMahon had dreamt up the idea and ran with it.

“I have no idea where the idea came from. Vince 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.”

During the podcast, Kurt Angle revealed that he had respect for Booker T and Sharmell and it was the worst storyline that he has ever done. He also revealed that former WWE CEO Vince McMahon thought “it would be a funny program”. 

“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.”
