Kurt Angle On Retirement – ‘I Could Retire A Happy Man!’, More


Kurt Angle spoke with Burton Mail to promote his upcoming Q&A shows in the U.K. Check out some highlights:

On touring the UK: “I have always had a fabulous time in the UK. The fans are very respectful and intelligent when it comes to wrestling. I have never done anything like this before, but I spoke to Ric Flair (who recently took part in a similar event at the iPro Stadium, in Derby) and he said he had a fabulous time. I am really looking forward to coming over and being interviewed with the fans as I know they will have some really well thought of questions for me. I am also pleased that my last international tour for my current tour will be in the UK with TNA in January. Wrestling fans in the UK love what we do, respect what we do, and they are some of the best fans to perform in front of.”

On his plans once he takes a break from wrestling early next year: “When I have finished up with wrestling I have several things in the pipeline. I will be getting back into my acting and I will be looking at doing something in terms of podcasting. I will also enjoy being a fan of wrestling and will be watching from home. Most importantly, after a run of 15 years, I will be giving some time back to my family because it is their time now. But I am going to miss it and this might not be the end. I could come back, but if I was to never wrestle again I could walk away a happy man.”

On the standout moment of his career: “Anything around Wrestlemania is always special. I also have loved working for TNA and coming in to a small company and being a part of it growing over the years. But If I had to boil it down to one moment it would have to be when I faced Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania. We just clicked, it took very little work to put together the match and it was a great match and very special.”

On his expectations for the tour: “I really am looking forward to coming over and cannot wait to meet all the fans. I am sure they will be well prepared for my speaking tour and I am ready to answer any questions they throw at me.”
