Kurt Angle wants to continue to work with WWE.

Angle returned to WWE television on the August 29 episode of WWE Raw in his hometown of Pittsburgh. Angle hasn't wrestled since WrestleMania 35, but did have offers from AEW at one point in his retirement.

Speaking on the Wrassingh Show, Angle was asked if taking a deal with AEW would jeopardize his relationship with WWE.

"Yes, I do," he said. "It's natural to think that. I have a contract with WWE, it's a nostalgia contract. It's more of a merchandise contract. I always try to keep a good relationship with them, ever since I left them for TNA and came back to WWE. I don't want to do that again. I don't want to jump ship because WWE has always been good to me. They keep me active now. I was just on the show two weeks ago. They're talking about maybe me doing something at WrestleMania. They are always reaching out to me to help do media and stuff like that, kind of be an ambassador for the company. I like doing that. I don't mind because I can't wrestle anymore."

When asked to clarify potential WrestleMania plans, Angle said, "It's just an idea. It won't be in a wrestling capacity at all. There is nothing there yet."

During his WWE Raw appearance, Angle did an in-ring segment with Chad Gable & Otis, drank milk with the Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) and recalled a 2002 segment with Edge.
