WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is certainly one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever been a part of the professional wrestling world. The Olympic Gold Medalist has accomplished many things in his career and remains a beloved legend. He also had a long run in TNA, but it seems he was always happy about his run there.

Kurt Angle made his way to TNA in 2006 and had a tremendous run in Impact Wrestling. He faced off against numerous top talent and legends there and cemented himself as a top star there.

While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle talked about his time in TNA. He discussed his losses and even inactivity in 2012 there. Angle stated that he believes the company wasted money by not booking him to win more.

“I felt like the new guys coming in, these big stars came in, Eric Bischoff, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and not that any of them I had a problem with, I didn’t have a problem with any of ’em, but I think they got together, especially Hogan and Bischoff, and decided that it was time to make the young guys,” Angle said. “There were times where I wasn’t even booked on the show. I didn’t even have a pre-tape, or a promo, or any match. I was not even on the show, and when I did I was losing quite a bit.


I didn’t mind putting younger guys over but I think TNA was wasting money by not giving me more wins.

Kurt Angle is also almost fully recovered after his double knee surgery. Angle then revealed that he is going back into retirement after his appearance on Smackdown. We’ll have to see what Angle does next in his legendary career.
