Kurt Angle: I don’t know if WWE will ever want me to wrestle for them again

Kurt Angle was interested in returning to WWE in September of 2014 and wanted to have a meeting with Vince McMahon, but that meeting reportedly did not happen. He did talk with Triple H, but it was reported at the time that Triple H told him that WWE had no interest in bringing Angle back to the company as a wrestler.

Angle explained in a recent interview with that he has no interest in talking with WWE right now. Angle will be a free agent at the end of this month. Here is what he said:

“As far as WWE, I’m not going to talk to them,” said Angle. “But I know my ability is just as good as it ever was. If WWE thinks I’m too old, or my body isn’t durable or that I have a problem with medication–which I obviously don’t, I’ve been clean and sober for two years and nine months–but the issue has nothing to do with my talent.

“There is a reason they passed on me last time. You’ve got to remember WWE is a publicly traded company, and they have people to answer to, and you have a person who was pretty reckless from 2008 to 2013. I got hit with four DUIs. That’s pretty irresponsible. You have to look at a company that is publicly traded, like WWE, and the reputation they have to uphold, so you really have to be careful who you hire. And TNA is the reason why I’m clean and sober, so I have to give them credit, too. They allowed me time off to go to rehab and get my life together. So it’s one of those things where I’m not going to expect anything. Is it possible I go back to WWE somewhere along the lines? Of course. I think I’ll end up in the Hall of Fame, but I just don’t know if WWE will ever want me to wrestle again. It’s up to them, and it’s up to me. I don’t know what I’m going to do. But if I do decide to do it, it would be nice. A lot of people would like to see it, so we’ll see what happens.”
