On the latest episode of The Kurt Angle Show podcast, the Olympic gold medalist reacted to the rumor that Shawn Michaels was paid $3 million for his participation in the main event of WWE Crown Jewel 2018, where he teamed with Triple H one final time against the Undertaker and Kane, the Brothers of Destruction.

Kurt Angle says that Shawn Michaels is a WWE lifer and believes the company paid him well due to his loyalty throughout the years.

"Well, you know what, I'm not a WWE lifer. Shawn is. his loyalty is still with the WWE, and they paid him very well for it," said Kurt.

Asked if he would take the same payoff for another match, he responded, "What are you talking about? I would do it in a second. Good knees or bad knees, I would do it in a second."
