Kurt Angle reveals Vince McMahon did not have plans for him

On a recent episode of Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, Kurt Angle revealed how he wasn’t happy with his second run:

“No, not at all. I went back to WWE. It wasn’t a big welcome home. It was more of a, “We’re going to show you what you did when you left us’. I didn’t have any hard feelings about it, but Vince McMahon just didn’t have any plans for me. 

After years of working with TNA, Angle returned but didn’t receive the same welcome and admiration as he did during his first run with the company. The legend spoke about why he thought Vince McMahon had no plans for his return:

“I was doing more jobs than I was winning. I don’t blame him for that. I left the company high and dry in 2006, and coming back, I think he felt that I was a little bit of a liability because of my broken necks. I had four broken necks in WWE back in the 2000s. I also had a painkiller problem that I got myself out of, but I think that he thought I was a little bit of a liability so he didn’t want to utilise me the way he should have”

Angle returned to join the WWE Hall of Fame and became the RAW General Manager for a few months. After teaming up and feuding with fresh faces, he retired at WrestleMania 35 after losing to Baron Corbin.
