Kurt Angle wanted a successful run like Goldberg after WWE return

WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle retired at WrestleMania 35 against Baron Corbin, in a match that was largely panned by fans and Superstars alike.



The WWE Hall Of Famer spoke on his Kurt Angle Show podcast, where he discussed his WrestleMania 35 match. Prior to the aforementioned match, Angle squared off against several opponents. However, it seems he was not happy with his in-ring ability in the matches.

“I didn’t do a lot in that match, and I, you know, my body was shutting down, I had gained weight, I just looked different. I performed differently. A small part of me was still excited to be at WrestleMania, but I couldn’t wait for it to be over because I knew it wasn’t a Kurt Angle performance that the fans expect to see.”

Angle then revealed that he desired to have a WWE return on the same level as Goldberg, winning WWE World Titles.

“It’s disappointing because I wanted to perform at that level. I came back to WWE with the mindset that I was going to kicka** and take names and win world titles, you know, a good example is Goldberg. He comes back and, you know, wins world titles and is in the main event at WrestleMania. I was hoping that the same would be for me but it just didn’t happen.”
