WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle‘s career in pro wrestling is legendary, as his meteoric rise in WWE is something no one has been able to replicate. Following his first WWE stint, Angle went to TNA and accomplished a lot there over a decade. There were also rumors that he took control of TNA creative, and Angle finally decided to lay those to rest.
Kurt Angle was arguably on the best run of his WWE career in 2005 to 2006. He was simply known as the ‘wrestling machine’ and had tremendous matches with almost any WWE Superstar at that time. All that changed when his personal demons came to light.
The Olympic Gold Medalist eventually made his shocking debut in TNA Wrestling back in 2006 and had an amazing career there. While speaking during the latest episode of his Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle addressed the rumors that he tried to take control of TNA Creative. Angle made it clear that the rumors were completely untrue and unfounded.
“No, I could tell you this, there are rumors sometimes and there’s the truth. That’s a complete rumor. I didn’t even know about that. Vince and I had no intention of taking anything from anybody. Maybe Vince did, I don’t know. I don’t know if Vince did this, I don’t think he did. He probably said ‘hey, Kurt and I want to take over Dixie, and we want to take Jeff out. Vince Russo got along with Jeff (Jarrett), too. So, I just don’t see how that came to be.”
Angle eventually left TNA and made his way back to WWE in 2017 and finally retired in 2019. Kurt Angle celebrated his 54th birthday last week on Friday Night Smackdown, and it was truly a nostalgia trip for many fans. Angle then made it clear he is back to retirement following the appearance. Fans certainly love Kurt Angle, and that’s all that matters now.
