• Tony Khan Offered Multiple Different Contracts To Retired WWF Legend
During a recent interview with Wrestlinginc, Old School WWF Legend Kurt Angle revealed that AEW President Tony Khan offered him multiple different contracts, but he had to turn them down.
Here’s what Angle said:
“Yes, they offered me a couple of different contracts. I turned it down for personal reasons, but Tony Khan’s been really nice to me, very generous, and I really appreciate his interest in having me there. But at this particular time, I can’t do it.”
“Well, I had AEW, TNA, they’ve offered, but I can’t do it. I wish I could. My body’s too banged up, I’m 52 years old, just trying to live my life now and try to live it in less pain. And I’m in a lot of pain right now, so I’m suffering from the career that I’ve had, but I don’t regret it.
AEW, I think it was like a 7-match deal. TNA I think they were just gonna do one match, but I just felt like my final matches in WWE, I knew that I’d lost a step, I wasn’t the same as I was in my prime, and I didn’t like the person I was, the performer I was.
So if I can’t perform at that level that I was in my prime, I’m not gonna do it anymore. And that’s why I turned down the offers from AEW and TNA.”
Angle lost his final match at WrestleMania 35 to Baron Corbin, which made a lot of fans angry, who were hoping for a better ending to the great pro-wrestling career of the Olympic Gold Medalist.
