WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle took to Twitter after it was announced that he was one of several people released by the company due to coronavirus-related budget cuts.
Angle took to his official Twitter account where he gave his first comments about the release. He wrote the following:
“I wanted 2 say thank you to the WWE for the time I spent there.I made many new friends and had the opportunity to work with so many talented people. To the Superstars, continue to entertain the WWE Universe as well as you possibly can. They’re the best fans in the world. #itstrue.”
After returning to the company a few years ago, the legendary pro wrestler was booked as the Raw General Manager before being moved into a semi-active in-ring performer.
The WWE Hall of Famer lost to Baron Corbin in his farewell match at the WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium on the WWE Network. Angle then transitioned into being a backstage producer to help talent with their matches on the Raw brand.
It should be noted that some producers and talent are being released while some are being furloughed, which means they could be brought back in the future by the company. For the latest list of released producers, click here.
