When speaking to Andy Malnoske of Wrestling Inc, Angle would reveal that his new contract in WWE will last half a decade and that he’s open to doing whatever they want throughout his new deal with the company behind the scenes and on television.
“I signed a five-year deal with WWE,” Angle said “I’m going to do some part-time – if they need me in front of the TV, maybe managerial, where I would be managing some wrestlers. “
Angle would make it clear that most importantly, his new deal would allow him to be a producer and help the wrestlers of the present and future to ensure the best product possible.
“But the most important thing is I’m going to be a producer. I’m going to help the wrestlers with their technique. I’m going to help them structure their matches. It’s something I’m very good at. I thought I’d be able to contributor the company [in that role].”
This is great news as Angle truly is one of the greatest to ever do it and has the pedigree necessary to help the current Superstars reach their true potential. Small things like technique and match structure really do make all the difference and Angle will get a chance to work behind the scenes while staying in the industry he loves the most.
angle would also talk about his role as Raw General Manager, saying it was harder than being a wrestler more often than not.
“Being a General Manager is harder than wrestling, it really is,” Angle said. “You’re involved in every storyline and there’s so much to remember, it just gets confusing. I carried that role as good as I could, I thought I did okay at it.”
Angle’s return to WWE had most fans feeling nostalgic and happy to see him get one last ride with the company. Thanks to this new contract, though, we likely haven’t seen anywhere close to the last of Angle.
