On a recent edition of his “1 Of A Kind” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam recalled the Kurt Angle milk bath angle from WWE RAW in 2001.
Milk-O-Mania ran wild that night as Angle dealt with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and The Alliance by dousing them with milk.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On the Kurt Angle milk bath: “When we’re talking about Kurt Angle’s comedy, the fans loved it, but for me, the last thing I wanted to do was be in the ring getting sprayed with a hose full of milk. It wasn’t fun for me. Looking at the big picture now, I can see why it was entertaining — all these big wrestlers slipping and falling. But for me, I was just like, ‘Oh my god, this is why I didn’t want to come to WWE.’ That’s exactly how I felt at the time.”
On the Royal Rumble 2005 promo in the style of West Side Story: “That was so not like me. I felt so uncomfortable and like I was hating my life.”
