Kurt Angle Clarifies Wrestling Status After New Photo Surfaces

Last updated

Kurt Angle recently posted a shirtless photo of himself on Instagram which attracted fan attention. The former world champion was looking in great shape, making many wonder if he is preparing to get back into the ring sometime soon.

Angle discussed the rumors on his podcast and mentioned how he had gained weight and gotten to 260 pounds during the pandemic. So he decided to get fit again and got himself back down to 210 pounds. Speaking of a wrestling return, the Olympian said that he will probably wrestle in future:

“I’m trying to work myself into pretty good shape. I don’t expect myself to be what I used to be 10 years ago. But I would take 5 years ago over anything. If I’m able to feel as good as I did five years ago, I will probably wrestle. But right now, I don’t plan on it.’

Kurt Angle has not wrestled since his match with Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35. The match was billed as Angle’s retirement match. Many thought John Cena would have been a better opponent for the Attitude Era star, but Vince McMahon made the decision to put Baron Corbin in the spot instead.
