Kurt Angle is a bona fide WWE legend for what he did in the ring during his time in the organization between 1998-2006.
But in reality, and perhaps surprisingly, the former Olympic champion has now actually spent longer wrestling in rival promotion TNA, nine years and counting, than he did under Vince McMahon's authority.
That partnership won't be continuing much longer however, after Angle confirmed today that he will be leaving TNA when his contract expires. The wrestling veteran also hinting at what is next.

The move will bring to an end a stunningly successful time in the promotion, with Angle having been crowned TNA Heavyweight World Champion on six separate occasions and holding the title as recently as this July. It may also signal the end of his career altogether.
Indeed, as reported by F4WOnline.com, the former WWE Superstar explained that he plans to take a break from the wrestling business altogether at the end of his current deal.
Over the past year or so there has been some speculation that Angle could make a sensational return to the WWE, the wrestler himself admitting back in April that meetings had been held to discuss the possibility.
But, whilst his confirmation that TNA does not lie in his future will likely once again spark the rumors, it looks like Kurt Angle, now approaching his 47th birthday, is looking to wind down his career.
