WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle remains one of the most technically-gifted pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He had arguably the best rookie year in WWE history as he won the WWE Championship within a year and competed at the highest level for many years after that.
Angle would leave WWE in 2006 and made his way to TNA Wrestling, where he spent a decade in the company, surpassing the seven years he stayed in WWE. He also had instant classics in TNA, including matches against the likes of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuiness and many more.
Kurt Angle recently spoke on Talk Is Jericho, where the Olympic Gold Medalist revealed that he was offered the job of being an NXT coach and that of Matt Riddle’s manager. While Angle was interested in being Matt Riddle’s manager, he ultimately rejected the role because the pay was horrible.
“They did offer me a few jobs, though. They wanted me to be a coach at NXT. After that WWE also wanted me to manage Matt Riddle, which I was very interested in and I thought would be a great role. Unfortunately, the money was pretty bad. I am sorry, but when we talk about money, it better be at least worth it if we were going to do it. This amount was not worth it at all.”
