One of my personal favorites, because it was so funny, was the time (during a tag match) Angle fell face-first into HHH's lap. HHH looked absolutely disgusted, pushed Angle away and shivered as he tagged in his partner. Priceless!
A friend in need is a friend indeed, but a friend with weed is MUCH better!
1) His "interview" with the Rock before he beat the Rock for the title late in 2000. I cant remember the PPV, though. It was classic heel Angle spliced in with a couple of old Rock interviews. Funny as hell.
2) Him drinking beer with the Acolytes late in 2001. One of his few good moments as a face.
3) His "i tear my quadricep all the time" remark. I was rolling.
4) Any of his skits with Austin last summer. Some of the funniest stuff Ive seen on WWF tv.
Lyrically Im supposed to represent, Im not only a client Im the player-president.....
This is it folks. I laughed at this till i was crying. From CRZ's recap:
LILIAN GARCIA stands with Kurt Angle and asks for reaction to the Triple Threat decision. "Oh, I was expecting it. I wasn't surprised at all. In fact, I thought, why stop there? Why not add the Big Show, or Chris Jericho, or the whole state of Nebraska for that matter? And don't you think a wrestling ring is a little old school, Lilian? Why not put the match in a shark tank, with real live sharks? Hungry sharks! And the only way to beat your opponent is to stuff him down a shark's throat, and pin the shark. Wouldn't that be a hoot? But the way I see it, nothing would surprise me. Because it's quite obvious that that the WWF, and its mostly ignorant fans, would stop at nothing to see me lose this title. But guess what, Lilian? When it's all over with, the Rock, the Brahma Bull, the Great One; and Triple H, the Game, will be leaving this arena just like the people who came to see them...depressed, disappointed, and most of all losers, and that is true."
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I love it.

Updating Ohio State's basketball record could get to be a chore. Just remember, Michigan sucks.
Geez, I was going to talk about the "Shark Match" but mskj beat me to the punch. That and The Showster were probably the two funniest WWF moments ever for me. The great thing about the Shark Match joke is that he was absolutely right - matches were getting out-of-control gimmicky around that time. The "dangerous dork" quote and Angle's celebration of his first year in the WWF also stand out for me.

I just found out about and logged into this forum? My favourite moment was when Angle tried to get Kane to go after UT by saying that UT and his family didn`t invite him to Thanksgiving but you could come over to my house for Xmas, or do you celebrate Hannukah?
I consider myself a "smart" fan but I am a KAYFABE MANIAC!!! Kurt Angle is friggin' great!
I'm sure much of what he's done has already been covered, but I have two things of note I'd like to mention, although there are far too many to pick from:
-Kurt Angle's premiere at Survivor Series '99 was great when, during his match with Shawn Stasiak, with little provocation, he steps out, grabs the house mic and tells the fans, "You DO NOT boo an olympic hero!" I laughed throughout the whole match after that, and I knew Angle was going to be a big star.
-Like it or hate it, "WHAT?!" is here to stay, at least for a while, and if there's been anybody who's helped (or is to blame) for this phenomenon, it's Kurt! His reaction to the fans during his promos to this phrase is so classic! In a day and age where, apart from a handful of WWF superstars, most wrestlers in the WWF don't react directly to the crowd, Angle does, and it's very apparent when he gets pissed about the crowd chanting, "WHAT?!"
DVD, I second all that you say except I think that Nowinski needs some more painful looking moves, especially in the finisher department, to be a credible main event guy. Otherwise, it's great to see some optimism on the board.
