Kurt Angle: I Buried The Hatchet With Triple H

August 29, 2016 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– Kurt Angle recently appeared on The Ric Flair Show (transcript via wrestlinginc.com), here are the highlights…

On Talking With Triple H and a Possible WWE Return: “Well, I’m not sitting at home waiting around. I’m doing my own thing.” Angle added, “but if I went back to WWE, most likely it would be next year or the year after. I did talk to Triple H a few months ago, a very loose conversation. They have interest. I have interest. They don’t know what to do with me yet. It was more of a loose conversation. Put it this way: I wouldn’t be surprised if I go back next year, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I don’t go back at all. But it was kind of cool to talk to Triple H and just bury the hatchet from the past and we’re both on good terms with each other. I reach out to Vince [McMahon] every once in a while via text and it’s just good to be able to let the past go behind you. And if it does happen, at least I’ll be able to end my career there, if I do. If not, that’s okay.”

His Thoughts on American Alpha: “Oh, I think those kids are great. They’re both very talented. They have everything it takes to be a successful pro wrestler. I’d say within a year, they’ll be in the main event match. They just have that ability and it’s fun watching them wrestle. They remind me of me a little bit. [Gable] was a 2012 Olympian. I don’t know if he placed. I don’t know what he placed. Yeah, yeah, being an Olympian, that’s big news. I mean, there are very few that have gone to WWE, so he’s one of the very few. I love Jordan too. He’s a wonderful talent. It’s so funny because I think Gable reminds me of me and I think Jordan reminds me of Shelton Benjamin. And we’ll see how that goes for them. I know they brought Sheldon back, I think, specifically for them, and something happened to Shelton. He had to have surgery or something. So I just know they’ll have a good future. I’m excited for them.”
