Recently, WWE Commissioner Shane McMahon was interviewed on the Cheap Heat podcast. Among other things, McMahon discussed whether he will wrestle again. McMahon talked about his King Of The Ring (2001) match against Kurt Angle. Also, McMahon shared his thoughts on whether he would like to see Angle return to WWE.
"If it's the right scenario, I'm pretty much healed up from WrestleMania, but I'll tell you what. At 46 [years old], it takes a whole lot longer to heal and get ready. But again, if everyone, if they want it, and if it's warranted, then absolutely. I can dust off my stuff again and go after it. It's a thrill."
On the King Of The Ring (2001) street fight between 'Shane-O Mac' and Angle, McMahon said he was very proud of the match and that he always gave his all in his matches.
"I was very proud of the match, first and foremost. [I] got in there with an amazing talent, which was Kurt and we went after it. One of the things that I always try to do is, I always try to go out and give my absolute best and I approach everything that this is my last match and I always did it that way. So, again, growing up in the [professional wrestling] business and seeing so many of the greats and truly witnessing amazing matches, I always hoped in my mind that I'd have an opportunity to even scratch the surface and even attempt to have one of those matches. So that's how I approached every single thing, every match that I've ever done. Some click more than others, but Stan Hansen said at the [WWE] Hall Of Fame you need great opponents. And right story, Kurt and I clicked, and we went after it. And, again, I am very proud of the match."
When asked whether he would like to see Angle finish his professional wrestling career with WWE, McMahon admitted that he was not familiar with Angle's health status. With that said, 'The Boy Wonder' would welcome a rematch versus Angle.
"I don't know enough about Kurt over the last several years. I don't know where his health is or any of those issues. But again, if you rewind the clock and go back to the time we had with Kurt Angle and I at The King Of The Ring. Personally, I'd love to do that again. I'd give that a shot. But again, sometimes the business, as we get older, unfortunately, in the business, the brain will say 'go' and the body will say 'no'. And at some point, there's a time you just have to pick a different path."
