Kurt Angle On His Decision To Leave TNA

Kurt Angle recently appeared on Live Audio Wrestling to talk about his TNA departure and more. Here are the highlights. 

On leaving TNA:

I did this on purpose. I needed a break. I’ve been under contract for the past 17 years and didn’t have much time to spend with my family. I just wanted to do my own thing for a year. I finished up my contract with TNA, I was really happy with my career there, very happy with my career in WWE. I really don’t have much else to prove, I’m not going to be retiring though. I will be coming back to wrestling eventually. I’ve been signing contracts mainly because of the money. Thank god, the money has always been good for me. WWE and TNA, they’ve both treated really well but I just got to the point where I wanted to do my own thing for a little while. I didn’t want to be obligated to going anywhere, I wanted to do my own thing and see how that goes, see where it takes me. I also wanted to start working on my acting career, I signed with an agency, APA in Hollywood. I’ve been doing some reads, just doing my own thing. I like it, it’s good to be off and not have to worry about showing up somewhere every week.

On a possible WWE return:

We’ll see what happens. I haven’t talked to TNA or WWE about doing anything in the future. I want to take this whole year off but I will start talking negotiations in the fall. We’ll see what happens but yes, it does feel good. I heard about Pittsburgh, I didn’t really watch but I heard they were chanting we want Angle. I saw a lot of tweets going out there, I do believe I started trending that night. I’m sure that was quite a surprise to WWE. I know that the fans wants me back, I understand. I had a great career there, it’s where I started and obviously a lot of people want me to finish there.

  • Mean Dean

    Has angle even tried to cash one of dixies phony checks lmao

  • The one and only great one

    If he’s serious about taking a year off, then he’ll probably be a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble next year. Which means he has plenty of time to train and get his body right for the WWE medical exam.

    “I’ve been signing contracts mainly because of the money” kinda exposing his real motive there.
