Below are some highlights from a recent Q&A with Kurt Angle on Facebook:
Q: How do you stay in such good shape?
“I’m on a strict diet and I train every single day. I’m not happy with how I look right now, but I’ve been pretty inactive as a wrestler the past couple of years. The more I wrestle, the better shape I get into. We will see. BUT remember that diet is 90% of it. High protein low carbs low fat.”
Q: Thoughts on the success of All In?
“I think that overall it’s good for wrestling. I don’t consider it any type of detriment to WWE. It’s got some legs though. Could get even more popular.”
Q: How do you feel about Shane McMahon winning the World Cup?
“Shane has proven himself to be a great sports entertainer. I would have preferred him to earn the World Cup Title by wrestling in the tournament though.”
Q: If you had to choose to wrestle someone from NJPW who would it be and why?
“Kenny Omega. He’s got talent. Love the guy. Never met him though.”
Q: What’s next for you are you going to be back as general manager?
“I don’t know. I do want to wrestle more. I just started wrestling again so it’s going to take a few matches before I get the kinks out, especially being older now. I’m hoping I get a little bit more consistent wrestling in the future. Either way, I love contributing. We will see.”
Q: Who on the NXT roster do you want a match with?
“I met Velveteen Dream on an Indy circuit 4 or 5 years ago. I’m amazed at his progress. I’d love to have a match with him before I retire.”
