TNA wrestler and former WWE Superstar Kurt Angle talked to Wrestlezone’s own Mark Madden on 105.9 the X. The super-genius and the Olympic gold medalist hyped Impact Wrestling’s return to Washington, PA on August 16th.
Madden asked Angle what his current relationship with WWE is like, and if the door is ever open for a return:
Angle also mentioned that he couldn’t work a full-time WWE schedule after 15 years of hard pro wrestling, stating “wherever I end up it’s going to be part time.” He estimates he could work up to eight days in a month, but it could be as low as one or two. His current deal with TNA is 40 dates per year.
Since the interview, Madden has learned from sources that Kurt Angle has spoken with Paul Levesque (aka Triple H), but found out the company isn’t interested in bringing him back right now. He then contacted Vince McMahon, who deferred to Levesque as the executive handling personnel decisions. It’s being said that Triple H was not happy about Angle trying to go over his head to Vince, and that certainly did not help his situation any.
Additionally, WWE is said to be concerned with Angle’s dependence problems. But Madden noted Angle was perfectly coherent during the interview. Angle is a Pittsburgh resident, so reports/rumors tend to fly locally when he’s at low ebb, but Madden says he’s heard nothing negative about Angle in quite some time.
