Angle did a Q&A session on his Facebook page and during it, a fan asked him why he didn’t appear. It turns out that the WWE Hall of Famer had a prior engagement that he couldn’t get out of. He wrote the following:

“I had a prior engagement I was committed to. I couldn’t get out of it.”

Angle is no longer under contract with WWE as he was furloughed by the company back last April due to budget cuts related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
