While the professional wrestling fan base waits for what is expected to be Kurt Angle’s final match inside a WWE ring on Sunday night, there is good news that comes with knowing the WWE Universe won’t get to see one of the greatest ever to wrestle, wrestle anymore. Kurt Angle is not leaving WWE.
Yes, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle will finish his in-ring career when he faces Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 but this won’t be the last time you see him with the company.
In an interview with Sky Sports (h/t Ringside News), Angle said that he has signed a new deal with WWE. That new deal will see him employed in a backstage role but one that will also see him on camera from time to time.
“I signed a contract to help the younger talent behind the scenes,” Angle said. He then explained that he would be on the road helping guys make it on the main roster and that “I’ll probably be an on-camera talent like a manager or maybe a general manager again.”
What could be interesting about his thoughts of being a GM again is that there seems to be no indication by WWE that he would be given his old role of acting Raw GM back.
Still, this is great news for Angle fans. No doubt, his experience and leadership could be a huge asset for a company that is really pushing the progression of young talent.
