WWE Corridor of Famer Kurt Angle, on the age of 52, stays a person in demand.
Chatting with Wrestling Inc not too long ago, the 1996 Olympic gold medallist revealed that AEW has made him a number of gives to affix since their inception, however he has declined all of them up to now.
“Sure, they provided me a few totally different contracts,” Angle revealed.
“I turned it down for private causes, however Tony Khan’s been very nice to me, very beneficiant, and I actually admire his curiosity in having me there. However at this specific time, I can’t do it.”
“The primary provide, they needed me to have many matches,” Angle added. “The following provide, I believe, was three matches, after which one was simply an on-camera character, no wrestling.”
Angle has talked concerning the fixed ache he’s in following his skilled wrestling profession, so asking him to do a collection of matches, or any, looks as if a longshot.
Nonetheless, the on-camera character position in AEW may very well be interesting when the time is correct. Names like Tazz, Jake ‘The Snake’ Robers, Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard have all proven it may be carried out successfully.
Angle was provided the same position with WWE not too long ago. The corporate needed him to handle former UFC star and present RAW Tag Staff champion Riddle, however once more, Angle declined.
“Two causes – one was my firm I began wanted my consideration 100 per cent,” he added.
“Particularly with the virus factor and I needed to simply be there for the corporate and the opposite factor was the cash, it simply…it wasn’t sufficient.
“I wasn’t going to handle someone for the sum of money they needed to provide me.”
As Angle notes in his clarification, he has his personal complement firm that he’s very fingers on with. He additionally has a podcast with Conrad Thompson which has been an prompt hit.
He doesn’t must return to skilled wrestling and given the quantity of upkeep his physique requires, it in all probability isn’t a good suggestion that he does. Nonetheless, given Angle’s identify worth, it appears a foregone conclusion he’ll be concerned once more at some point.
A match although? That’s unlikely.
