Katie Masson’s Day with the Heart of Gold, Kurt Angle

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 29, 2017

By Brian Kelley

Kurt Angle should have an ego. He is an Olympic freestyle wrestling gold medalist, a multi-time World Heavyweight Champion, a George Tragos/Lou Thesz Hall of Famer, and a WWE Hall of Famer as of this weekend. Yet, when he visited World League Wrestling for a meet-and-greet prior to an event in Troy, Missouri, he was so humble and polite you could tell that he cared for his fans.

Prior to the event, Missouri Wrestling Revival worked with Harley Race, Leland Race, and WLW to welcome Katie Masson to the Race Arena as a special guest to meet Kurt Angle prior to the event. She is diagnosed with cri du chat, also known as 5p- syndrome.  It’s a chromosomal deletion disorder resulting in a wide spectrum of intellectual and developmental abilities.

I took photos for the fans with Kurt Angle.  When Katie and her father Billy Jack Masson came up to meet Angle, I wished I would have video-recorded the encounter. It was a moment that will forever be remembered in the Masson household.

It was a pleasure to meet the Massons that day, and MWR Artist Dartallion Allen Jr. surprised Katie with several exclusive Top Draws of current WWE Superstars for her as a birthday gift.  During the matches, the Massons sat in the front row.  They even got a welcome to the Race Wrestling Arena in front of the crowd by ring announcer Brian Thompson.

The day and night was highlighted for me by great moments that included watching Angle and Harley Race enjoy some one-on-one time, many great matches, and even one of the biggest roar of the crowd I have heard when Angle (as a special guest referee) leveled Jayden Fenix during the Leland Race–Fenix match.

Still, my lasting impression is the sincere moment that Kurt Angle shared with Katie Masson.
