Brett Buchanan of Alternative Nation is featuring an interview with Kurt Angle where he discusses a variety of topics including why he won’t be revealing his next move until January with his TNA deal recently expiring and details on his recent talks with WWE.
On his next move after his TNA deal expiring:
“I can’t really say who I’m going with yet or what company I’m going to sign with. I am going to sign, but I’m going to just sign for 1 year, and that’s that. I think I’m pretty much done, I’m just going to have the best year I can have. Hopefully it’ll be my best year, then I’m going to retire. I don’t plan on doing anything until January, so pretty much my contract will expire, and the next one will start in January. My knee has a lot to do with it, with my rehabilitation I won’t be cleared to wrestle until January.”
Confirming he has signed a deal already:
“Yes, the agreement has been made; it’s just that our attorneys have to complete all of the bullcrap that goes with it. Both sides have agreed to it, we’re just waiting for the attorneys to dot the I’s, and cross the T’s. I went with the company that was going to really emphasize what I wanted, and that was a limited wrestling schedule. I would say no more than 40 dates a year, that’s what I wanted, that’s where I feel I am at in my career right now. That’s a lot of the reason, like I said, the company that I’m signing with is a company that really wanted to take care of me, both from a wrestling standpoint and a financial standpoint, and I’m very happy with it.”
Details on his recent talks with WWE:
“The only person that I really spoke my piece with, that I had a lot to do with in the past, and the problems I had and the way I left the company, I was able to speak my piece with Vince, and I’m happy with that. As long as Vince and I don’t have any issues, I’m okay with that. What I found out is that Triple H is pretty much running the show now. I didn’t know that, I really believed that Vince would always run the show until the day he died, but now they’re in a position as a publicly traded company where you’re not only answering to Vince and Triple H, you’re also answering to the shareholders. The most important thing is that I got to speak to Vince, and speak my peace with him, and I’m happy with that.”
