On a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, our Olympic Hero revealed that WWE asked him to appear during their recent Draft, but he turned them down.
Other Wrestling Legends like Rob Van Dam, Shawn Michaels, JBL, Michael Hayes, The Road Dogg, Teddy Long, Triple H, Eric Bischoff and Molly Holly appeared for the new roster split segments.
Here’s what Kurt Angle had to say:
“I was asked to do it, and I couldn’t, unfortunately. I wish I could have.
I would have loved to be there and announce a Draft pick, but unfortunately, I was busy that day and I couldn’t do it.
I’ve partnered with Project #1 Nutrition and we have this amazing protein that we came out with called American Dream Cookies and Cream Protein.
Obviously, I’m a cookies and milk kind of guy, so we wanted to do that theme and we did cookies and cream. It’s actually the best tasting protein I’ve ever had.
We did a deal with GNC. We have worldwide distribution. We launched it. We have a commemorative box set collector’s edition.
The first 500 customers that purchase it, it’s on my Instagram page, the link on my Instagram page, you order that, the first 500 gets a free autographed signed photo from me.
In the box, you have the cookies and cream protein. You have a Kurt Angle shaker bottle, Kurt Angle T-shirt, Kurt Angle sticker set, and obviously the Kurt Angle cookies and cream protein.
It’s a great deal and that’s how we started off with the promotion and we’re really excited about getting this started.”
Kurt Angle wrestled his final professional wrestling match at the WWE WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view on April 7th 2019, which he lost to Baron Corbin.
The former 13 time World Heavyweight Champion (2x WWF Champion, 2x WWE Champion, 1x WCW World Heavyweight Champion in the WWF, 1x World Heavyweight Champion in WWE, 6x TNA World Champion, 1x IWGP Heavyweight Champion) has been officially retired ever since.
