During the latest edition of his “The Kurt Angle Show” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle commented on the controversial storyline back in 2018 where it was revealed that he had a “son” in Jason Jordan.

Jordan wound up suffering a neck injury and retired from in-ring competition, so the storyline was dropped. Jordan now works as one of the top backstage producers in WWE.

Kurt Angle says the storyline was a racially motivated rib from Vince McMahon after he found out that Angle had dated several African-American women in the past.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the storyline being a rib by Vince McMahon: “Vince McMahon caught wind that I dated a couple of African-American women in my past. About 17 years ago, he had me do a program with Booker T and Sharmell, where I was stalking Sharmell, Booker T’s wife. And now it’s Jason Jordan. Vince likes to take ribs and turn them into storylines. He just has this crazy weird personality. And he just wanted to kind of rub it in my face, like, ‘Hey, I know what was going on in your life, and we’re going to make it into a storyline.’ He wasn’t going to let this thing die. It was going to keep going.”

On how he and Jordan really treated each other like father and son: “To be honest with you, we treated each other like father and son. It’s crazy. He was calling me ‘dad,’ I was calling him ‘son.’ We were half-joking, but we were half-serious, too. It was like I was his dad in the WWE, for real … He never disrespected me. He was always a good kid. And here I am talking to you like he was my son. It was just crazy because that’s how we treated it.”
