– During a recent interview with NBC Sports Boston’s Steve Fall for The Ten Count, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle shared more details about the contract he was offered by AEW and company President Tony Khan. Below are some highlights (via Fightful):

Kurt Angle on the offer he received from AEW and Tony Khan: “They actually wanted me to wrestle, in particular. Tony Khan gave me a call, wanted me to wrestle, they offered me a pretty good deal, but I just can’t do it anymore. I wish I could, but it’s just not possible. They did offer me two different times. They did want me to do on-camera personality as well, a non-wrestling role, I actually turned that down as well. I wanted to start up my supplement company and put more time into that and didn’t want to leave the company at this particular time, so I decided not to do it.”

On what his AEW schedule would’ve looked like: “They wanted me to have big special matches. They gave me a contract for ten matches, they didn’t say how long it would be. It might not have been for a year, it might have been for three years and I would have wrestled three matches a year. I decided not to do it because of my supplement company, and the fact that, I’m not the same that I used to be. If I’m gonna go in there and wrestle, I want to be the old Kurt Angle and I know I can’t be that anymore.”

Angle has previously mentioned being offered different types of contracts from AEW before, including one that would’ve been a non-wrestling, on-camera talent contract.
