Kurt Angle appears on Howard Stern with a musical performer who is now involved with TNA, says wrestling is harder than MMA, says he would rather not do business with Vince McMahon again but won't rule it out either
Nov 3, 2008 - 09:27 AM


The following report of Kurt Angle's appearance on the Howard Stern Sirius satellite radio show was filed by Dot Net reader Jagger K.

This was one of the better Stern episodes since he came to Sirius because of the first time visit of Eric The Midget in studio. The way Kurt Angle got on the show was he delivered American Idol's Diana DeGarmo, who is now involved with TNA. DiGarmo was always the object of affection from Eric The Midget, including Eric being known to call her mother at home requesting dates. Diana said she cannot say what her involvement is with TNA, but she will be appearing with them.

Kurt then came out and seemed very nervous at first but loosened up. He discussed his separation from Karen (who he offered jokingly to Eric) and said that it wasn't due to cheating but things were good until he got her involved with TNA. He discussed how he likes black women and said he wanted Robin, but Robin was showing him no attention. He said he was influenced by Howard's decision to leave FM for Sirius and how he made that company bigger and decided to to the same by leaving WWE and going to TNA, where he said they were getting bigger and better.

Kurt said that he quit WWE because Vince overworked him and he needed time off to go to rehab for his 100 pain killer a day addiction but Vince told him to work through it. Howard brought up Kurt wanting to box and Kurt said it was MMA not boxing, and he is in discussions with several companies but his priority was TNA. Howard discussed how hard MMA is and Kurt's broken neck. Kurt said, "Wrestling is a lot harder than MMA is," and discussed being body slammed on plywood is harder on the body than MMA. Kurt said he rather not do business with Vince again but wouldn't rule it out but it would just be business.

Kurt then joined in on trying to get Eric The Midget to ask Diana DiGarmo out and she said she would get him back in TNA for putting her in this situation. Kurt then said Diana was blowing Eric off but since Eric was a big fan he would make him an honorary member of Main Event Mafia and allow ETM to ... "f--- him," but Eric said no because Kurt was a "guy."

They had a full studio with real press covering the event (Newsday and others), Natalie Maines from The Dixie Chicks, girls from The Bunny Ranch, and other onlookers.
Kurt came off like a boxer who has been hit too much, but he received laughs, and his appearance was short with what would be a huge segment with the focus on Eric.
 
The show will be one of the biggest routed Stern shows and a big HowardTV hit because of Eric The Midget and a brilliant way to get Kurt/TNA involved by delivering Eric's dream girl in DeGarmo.
