Kurt Angle has revealed that he would be open to wrestling again, despite retiring back in 2019.
Speaking on a recent episode of his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, the WWE Hall of Famer looked back at the career of The Undertaker. The Deadman finally brought down the curtain on his own career in a cinematic Boneyard March at WrestleMania 36 against AJ Styles.
Looking at that match specifically, Angle praised the work both men put in.
“What I loved about it is it was pre-recorded. I think that those guys — the sky was the limit with what they could do because every spot could have been filmed at different times. I think that was brilliant because, at the time, Undertaker was coming back, and he’s getting older… I think they did the right thing,”
When asked if he would consider taking part in a cinematic match, Angle said that he would be open to it.
“I could do that. I’d be game for that. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to do it every year, but if I’m going to do a match, I would want to pre-record it, and I would want each spot to come whenever I was ready to do it.
There’s nothing wrong with doing matches like that, especially if you’re going to put them on TV. I mean, having a match, where you just do it all in the ring, and you do it live in front of people. That’s one thing that’s really impressive.
That’s the most impressive match you can have, but having a match where you have spot after spot, taped at different times you put it all together. It’s still a wrestling match. Now don’t get me wrong, you’re cheating a little bit, but it’s still going to come across incredibly well. That Undertaker/AJ match was awesome.”
Kurt Angle Previously Hinted He Could Be Tempted Back
Speaking back in January Angle admitted that he would jump at the chance to wrestle again if he was offered the right amount of money. It has been reported that Shawn Michaels earned $3 million for ending his own retirement to feature at Crown Jewel in 2018. Angle said that if offered a similar amount, he’d be back in the ring regardless of his physical condition.
