"No," Angle replied. "Impact Wrestling has treated me very well. They gave me time off when I needed it, and they paid me a lot of money to come here.
"Do I miss the Wrestlemania crowds and the Royal Rumble crowds? Yes, I do. It was hard to walk away from that. I felt, for my family and for my health at the time, I had to seek a reduced schedule. I had a painkiller problem, and problems with my marriage, and I kind of took it out on Vince McMahon [WWE owner]. He was trying to make me the guy, before John Cena came along. I just didn't do the right things. I blame myself for that. You live and you learn, and I'm happy with TNA."
