Kurt Angle comments on potentially returning to the ring.
Angle is a Hall of Famer in both WWE and TNA (IMPACT Wrestling), and he had a legendary career with both companies. He won the WWE Championship four times and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship six times. Angle retired from the ring following his loss to Baron Corbin at WWE WrestleMania 35 in 2019. He has stated that AEW offered him a 10-match deal, but he didn't accept it.
In an interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Angle was asked whether he has one more match in him. He responded by stating that he didn't think so, given his recent double knee replacement surgery. Angle noted that he's not in the shape he used to be in, but he could potentially do a tag team match. He used Ric Flair's return to the ring as an example.
“I don’t think so. I had knee replacements five months ago. I’m good. I think I had a good enough career that I’m very proud of. If it does come to be, it’ll probably be a tag match like Ric Flair did so that I don’t get exposed. I hate to say it, but I’m not exactly the same wrestler I used to be. If I did decide to have a wrestling match, it would be against younger guys that could carry me, and I would make sure it’d be a tag match so I wasn’t exposed. It’s hard to say this right now because I’m basically telling the fans, ‘Hey, I can’t really wrestle anymore, but watch me in my next match.’ But I’m just telling the truth. I’m an honest person. I’m just saying, I’m not like I used to be and never will be, but you know what, maybe down the road, I might do a tag match," Angle said.
Angle recently stated that Bryan Danielson was one of his dream opponents. Check out his comments here.
