Angle made his first appearance at a professional wrestling event in 1996 with his in-ring debut following in 1998. He signed a contract with the WWE that same year and participated in his first televised storyline in March 1999.
During this interview, Angle was asked about potentially wrestling again which is when he noted that he doesn’t plan on it but did joke about coming out of retirement to team up with his son in storyline Jason Jordan.
“I don’t plan on wrestling again,” Angle admitted. “If something comes about, maybe my son, Jason Jordan, comes back and wants me to tag with him, maybe. But for the most part, I’m good. My body, I put it through hell the last twenty years. I know how I feel now and I know I want to have a quality of life after wrestling. Want to be able to play with my kids and hold them. I’m 50 years old, I’ve been wrestling amateur and pro for the last 45 years, so it’s time for me to step down.”
As seen at the WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium on the WWE Network, Angle lost to Baron Corbin in his farewell match.
