WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has not returned to pro wrestling since his release, but that didn’t stop WWE from offering him role. Angle also revealed the exorbitant amount of money he’d need to wrestle one more match.

Kurt Angle had a tremendous career in WWE, spanning multiple World Title runs and incredible matches as he faced off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer.

Kurt Angle still follows the current WWE product as much as he can. WWE is moving away from recruiting indie wrestlers, because they are looking for cross-over athletes they can train to be Superstars.

While speaking on a recent episode of The Wrestling Inc. Daily, Kurt Angle talked about WWE moving away from signing indie talents. Angle believes that WWE should tread lightly and be careful in this regard.


“I would tread very lightly on that because there are a lot of incredible independent wrestlers. Wrestlers that never did any real sport but they’re very good at their craft, and I would like to see the percentage. Fortunately, for me, I was a real athlete and won a gold medal at the Olympics. These kids that are trained to be pro wrestlers and working at the independent shows, they’re doing a lot of the work and they’re crafting their skills and their character. I don’t know how much character development occurs down at NXT, but I think a lot of character development occurs in independent shows.”

The company is focused on recruiting attractive people and emphasized color and ethnicity as evident by their Las Vegas tryouts recruits. It remains to be seen what will become of the company in the future.
