Kurt Angle Reveals Details Of Multiple Contract Offers From AEW
Angle retired in 2019
Kurt Angle has revealed that All Elite Wrestling have made three different contract offers to him, which the WWE Hall Of Famer turned down.
Angle noted a year ago that a move to AEW was 'off the table' for him after retiring from in-ring competition at WWE WrestleMania 35. The Olympic Gold Medallist was released from his producer role with WWE at the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The 52-year-old has now offered up more details, indicating that AEW initially wanted him to wrestle multiple times before their last offer consisted of just being an on-screen character.
Speaking to the Wrestling Inc. Daily, Angle revealed: "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.
“The first offer, they wanted me to have many matches. The next offer, I think, was three matches, and then one was just an on-camera personality, no wrestling.”
