5. Kurt Angle Reveals Why ‘You Suck’ Line Was Taken Out Of His Theme
On a recent episode of The Kurt Angle Podcast, Angle spoke about why the infamous ‘You Suck’ part of his WWE theme song was removed when he turned face.
Angle revealed that he didn’t actually want to take the part out, but Vince McMahon wanted it removed due to the possibility of it creating confusion among fans about whether or not he was a good guy or a bad guy.
Angle stated “I actually never wanted WWE to take the ‘You suck’ chants out of my ‘You Suck’ song. I loved them, as a babyface and as a heel. It was Vince McMahon that didn’t like it. He didn’t want fans chanting, ‘You suck’, when I was a babyface, when I was the wrestling machine. Vince wanted to deter them from doing it, so he decided to take the ‘You suck’ chants out of my song.
I loved them. I always liked it. I never had a problem with it, whether I was a heel or a baby. I knew when I was a heel, it was disrespectful, and as a baby, it was out of respect. It was something that the fans related to me, and it stuck for the rest of my career.” (H/T WrestlingNews.Co)
