Kurt Angle reveals he was exempt from 90-day non-compete from WWE

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer and Olympic Gold Medallist Kurt Angle recently revealed that he was exempt from the usual 90-day non-compete clause when he was released from WWE back in 2006.

Speaking on the Kurt Angle Show podcast, the former WWE Champion revealed that Vince McMahon allowed him out of his contract with no questions asked.

”I was free to go that day I signed (the release), with no strings attached” Angle began. “Vince McMahon released me that day and I was free to do whatever I wanted.

“You know I was very grateful for that because not that I was planning on going anywhere else when I signed the release, I just wanted to get out and wanted a break” Angle concluded.

Kurt Angle would of course go on to sign for TNA and have a lengthy run for the company in 2006, before eventually returning to WWE to round out his career.
