Kurt Angle says the door is open for him to work at the WWE Performance Center.
Kurt Angle is one of the most prolific wrestlers of all time and after his 2019 retirement at WWE WrestleMania 35, it appeared he would stay under the WWE umbrella for the remainder of his time in wrestling. Unfortunately, after the start of the global pandemic, Kurt Angle was released by WWE on Wednesday, April 15, 2020.
Naturally, a performer with Kurt Angle's resume would be of value in many different capacities to a wrestling promotion. While WWE had him performing producer duties, Kurt Angle would also be a likely candidate to be a trainer at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
Currently, with names like Matt Bloom, Shawn Michaels, Sara Del Rey, and more helping groom the next era of WWE performers, Kurt Angle could have added a wealth of experience on a main event professional wrestling level and offered fundamental help due to his time as an Olympic Athlete and amateur wrestler.
Speaking on the latest version of his podcast, which was a Q&A special, Kurt Angle revealed that he was offered to come to the WWE Performance Center by Triple H and while his schedule doesn't currently allow for it, Angle says he would be open to the idea of working there in the future, should an opportunity to work together arise, because Angle feels that he is a good trainer.
“I would consider doing it. It's something that I enjoy doing. Triple H offered me a job, I believe, to train wrestlers. He wanted me to come down once a month to NXT. Nothing transpired from it but maybe in the future, there might be a possibility. I like training people. I just don't have a lot of time, believe it or not, including in this pandemic. I'm good at training people, I'm good at teaching stuff.”
Triple H is also openly trying to get the Undertaker to become a regular fixture at the WWE Performance Center. Learn more about that at this link.
