WWE Pull Kurt Angle From Wrestling Convention Appearance Due To AEW Link

Angle had his last WWE match at WrestleMania 35...

Earlier this week, Kurt Angle revealed that he has signed a new five-year contract with WWE that will see him act as a backstage producer and occasional on-screen talent.

It appears this new contract means that Angle is exclusive to WWE in all aspects of professional wrestling, as promoter Tracy Myers and Yes! Weekly have revealed the Olympic gold medalist has been pulled from a scheduled appearance at the WrestleCade 2019 convention in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

WWE are supposed to have pulled Kurt from the event themselves and haven't offered a replacement. A report from Wrestling Inc states: "WrestleCade Weekend co-owner Brian Hawks was told that Angle could not appear because they are associated with All Elite Wrestling. WrestleCade says it is not officially connected to any other wrestling promotion, including AEW.

"The deposit for Angle's appearance was returned immediately but WWE did not offer a replacement for Angle, according to John Pollock on Twitter."

This is the second time Angle has been pulled from a high profile appearance outside of WWE recently, as along with The Undertaker, the former Raw General Manager was pulled from an outing at Starrcast II.
