WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has not returned to pro wrestling since his release, but that didn’t stop WWE from offering him a role. Angle also revealed the exorbitant amount of money he’d need to wrestle one more match. It seems Angle didn’t find being fired by Vince McMahon surprising.
Kurt Angle had a tremendous career in WWE, spanning multiple World Title runs and incredible matches. This is because he faced off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer.
Angle also worked as a producer in WWE but he was released last year in April, in what was the company’s biggest mass exodus so far. Angle wasn’t able to work as a producer for too long.
While speaking on the Talk Is Jericho podcast, Kurt Angle admitted that he was not very good at his job of being a producer. This is why Angle wasn’t surprised when Vince McMahon fired him last year.
“I took the job as a producer/agent. I did it for a year, I wasn’t very good at it. The thing is, I don’t like computers and you have to use a damn computer all the time. Vince is like, ‘Kurt, open up your computer.’ I don’t even know how to do this thing. I was good at giving the guys ideas for the matches but I wasn’t really a quality producer. So when the pandemic hit I was one of the first ones let go and I don’t blame Vince for that.”
Vince McMahon also made Angle memorize a 3-page script in 10 minutes. Kurt Angle is enjoying his life in retirement after WrestleMania 35. We certainly wonder if he will make his return to pro wrestling one way or the other.
