Kurt Angle Talks Being In WWE Rehab, If He Thinks Hulk Will Return, Dixie's Heel Turn, Brock Lesnar
A WWE return or UFC appearance: "I am happy where I am. I dabbled with UFC, talked to Dana White a couple different times. Came up with contracts but couldn't agree on a starting date. Now it's too late for me, I'm 44, I'm turning 45 in December, I would have loved to have done it. It just wasn't in the cards. I love Dana White, and we were able to reach an agreement. The starting times were just too early for me."
An acting career: "I'm interested in doing that. I have a good agency. It's really hard when you are wrestling year-round. It's starting to open up for me so yeah I have done about 6 movies and I plan on doing more. My focus is helping Impact Wrestling and doing the best I can."
Hulk Hogan and Dixie Carter: "I love the heel turn Dixie has made, it has helped a lot. Obviously we have had a few bumps in the road the last few months. We've been able to iron it out. Hogan is not under contract right now, but I have a feeling he will be back. I don't know when. He's an icon, he's a guy that has done so much for wrestling you always want him under contract, even if he can't wrestle anymore."
TNA's support through his rehab: "They have been awesome. I had to take some time out and clear my head and physically get better. TNA has been awesome. They have been 100% supportive. Dixie Carter has been amazing. The WWE Rehabilitation program has been awesome for me. My road to recovery is great. I'm really happy to be where I am right now."
Wrestling Brock Lesnar: "Oh me, he knows that. I wouldn't wanna get in a cage with him! He's a rare breed, you only find an individual like him once in ten lifetimes."
A possible WWE Hall of Fame induction: "You have to be. I am very honored to be in the TNA Wrestling Hall of Fame, but any hall of fame especially the WWE Hall Of Fame you wanna be a part of it. That's where I started. I have to give them credit on my character development. Teaching me my skills. You always want to be apart of their Hall of Fame. It's legendary."
His favorite WWE moment: "I had the opportunity to wrestle Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 21 and it was like magic. It was definitely one of my favorite matches. It might be one of the top 5 greatest matches of all time and I have to give a lot of credit to that to Shawn. He's amazing."
