WWE Offered Kurt Angle A Coaching Role At The Performance Center Following His Release
The Olympic Gold Medallist could have returned to the company...
Back in June, WWE tried to re-sign Kurt Angle as Matt Riddle's manager. The Wrestling Machine turned down the offer, however, because he is busy trying to grow his business, Physically Fit Nutrition.
During a recent appearance on the WrestlingInc. Daily podcast, Angle revealed WWE has since offered him other roles with the company, including working as a coach at the Performance Center.
The former WWE Champion said: "Managing Matt Riddle, that was a few months ago. They offered me another job coaching. They also offered me a Legends deal. We weren't able to get a contract done, but I'm cool with WWE. We're on good terms. There's no bad blood. Every once in a while, they call me to use me for something. I did a couple of appearances on TV in the last few months. Today, they have me do an ad for one of their sponsors, so I did the ad for them. So they still reach out to me. I'm just not under contract, and I kind of like that."
He added: "Yeah, I talked to Triple H about not so much going down there a lot but being on the phone or on a Zoom call with the wrestlers and talking to them, going over film, going over their technique [and] talking to them about promos. So it was a pretty easy schedule for me. Nothing came to fruition, but that's okay. They brought up the idea a few months ago, and it kind of got lost, but it's okay. I'm good where I am, and if they want to continue to use me here and there, that's fine."
