Kurt Angle has opened up about the possibility of returning to WWE TV for an on-screen pairing with Chad Gable. The two wrestlers have been compared to each other due to their similar Olympic wrestling backgrounds and comedic personalities.

During his latest edition of The Kurt Angle Show Podcast, Angle spoke highly of Gable and expressed his desire to team up with him as a heel duo. However, Angle cast doubt on his ability to play a heel role at this stage in his career.

“I would love to be a heel with Chad Gable. He’s so entertaining. The two of us together would be unstoppable. But, I’m sorry to say — if I ever came back to wrestle, I don’t know if I’d be a heel.”

Angle explained that it would be difficult for him to play a heel later on in his career because people tend to have sympathy for older wrestlers and want to cheer them on. He compared himself to Undertaker, who has so much respect from fans that it would be almost impossible for him to turn heel at this point.


“It’d be really difficult for me because of the career I have and the age I am. When you get older, people start having sympathy for you and they wanna cheer you on, they want you to win and it’s really hard to turn heel later on in your career.”

“Like Undertaker, look at him. He has so much respect. He’s been in the company for 30 years and all his accomplishments. You know how hard it would be for Undertaker to be a heel right now? It’s almost impossible and I think I’m comparable to that.”

Angle’s last appearance in WWE came at the RAW 30th anniversary show in January, where he appeared in a segment with DX and refereed a six-man tag match. He recently announced his need to undergo neck surgery in the future.

While it remains unclear if Angle will return to WWE TV in the future, his influence on the wrestling industry is undeniable. His contribution to WWE’s Attitude Era and his in-ring skills have inspired generations of wrestlers, including Chad Gable.
