During the latest episode of The Kurt Angle Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle discussed WWE’s interest in having him manage Matt Riddle. Angle revealed that WWE approached him with the idea but ultimately turned it down due to financial considerations.

Angle explained that the offer made by WWE was not financially appealing to him. He expressed his desire to manage Matt Riddle but felt that the compensation offered was insufficient for him to take on the role.

“The money was not good,” Angle said. “They didn’t want to give me that much money and it was like, ‘Okay. I would love to manage Matt, but you got to give me a little bit more money than that.'”

While Angle didn’t elaborate further on the specifics of the offer, it’s clear that financial considerations played a significant role in his decision not to manage Matt Riddle in WWE.
