• Kurt Angle Willing To Return For His Son Jason Jordan
During a recent interview with Wrestlinginc, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle talked about facing Baron Corbin in his final match, if he’s done with wrestling & more.
Below are the highlights:
On if Baron Corbin was the right opponent for his final match:
“I don’t think it’s the match that I hoped for, I think it was the match that should have happened. Baron and I had been doing a program for a year now. I decided that I wanted to retire at WrestleMania, so I kind of put Vince McMahon in a position. What does he do? Does he go with Baron Corbin — who I was supposed to go with — or do we change it up to John Cena, AJ Styles, or whoever else. It wasn’t really anyone’s fault, it was just the timing was Baron Corbin and it was the right decision.”
On if he’s done with Wrestling:
“I don’t plan on wrestling again. 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.”
