WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle spoke on the latest episode of The Wrestling Inc. Daily podcast. Among various topics of discussion, he talked about his current condition during the COVID-19 pandemic. He revealed that he is currently preoccupied with several opportunities that have come his way.
“It’s just pound the pavement, doing a lot of meetings, a lot of virtual meetings and doing endorsements, some movies that I’ve been talking to agencies and my manager [about], just getting into the acting industry and doing more with that. My Physically Fit nutrition company, that’s my first priority,” Angle noted. “That’s the reason why I didn’t take the job at WWE because I wanted to work more on my supplement company and make sure it succeeds.
“It’s called Physically Fit nutrition. We have chicken snacks, which is a kind of like a Chex Mix texture where we flavor them. They’re made out of chicken. We also have a plant protein, but they’re really good. They taste really good. They’re very healthy, and I’m excited to see how this does. We have a private label contract with Amazon. We’re also selling them in stores and online, so it’s going pretty well.”
During Kurt Angle’s final storyline in WWE, he was the referee in The Fight Pit where Timothy Thatcher was victorious over Matt Riddle. He then talked about the match and what he thought of it.
“I thought it was cool. I think it was a great way for Matt to leave NXT and to give Thatcher a little bit of a rub, so it worked out well,” Angle said. “It was a great match. I thought they did a great job for what they had. I think that it was a win-win for everybody.”
He proceeded to talk about or something similar where he revealed he was offered offered the role of Matt Riddle’s manager, which he subsequently turned down. He revealed he was also offered a job coaching as well as a Legends deal. However, they never came to be, but he is still on good terms with the company.
“Managing my Riddle, that was a few months ago. They offered me another job coaching,” Angle disclosed. “They also offered me a Legends deal. We weren’t able to get a contract done, but I’m cool with WWE. We’re in good terms. There’s no bad blood. Every once in a while, they call me to use me for something. I did a couple 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.”
Finally, Angle explained the coaching deal he received where he would have to work with the Performance Center recruits through meetings online. He would assess their in-ring and mic skills. Unfortunately, this deal did not end up transpiring as planned.
“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 there technique [and] talking to them about promos. So it was a pretty easy schedule for me,” Angle revealed. “Nothing came to fruition, but that’s OK. They brought up the idea a few months ago, and it kind of got lost, but it’s OK. I’m good where I am, and if they want to continue to use me here and there, that’s fine.”
