– Kurt Angle discussed the differences between the Main Event Mafia faction and the NWO during an interview with the Long Island Press. “What I think is that the NWO became so popular that people wanted to see them, but they rarely ever went to the house shows,” Angle said. “They rarely ever did matches on TV. They basically walked out, kind of [did promos saying] that they were really cool, people liked them, but they didn’t really work that hard.
“The MEM, the Main Event Mafia, all of our guys are willing to go out there every night and work our asses off. We show up at the house shows, we show up at TV, we have matches, we have great angles and matches set up, thank God. So it’s completely different because our guys—I’m the head of the Main Event Mafia, and if they don’t want to work, I’ll kick them out.” To read the full interview, visit LongIslandPress.com.
