WWE: The real reason why Kurt Angle looks set to reject WWE contract

Published 6 Comments

Football News

It was only a couple of weeks ago that Kurt Angle was seemingly seeking an audience with any WWE member he could find in a bid to convince them of his worth as a WWE superstar.

Meetings with Triple H and Vince McMahon reportedly ended in failure for Angle, with rumors even circulating that HHH was incensed with his former rival in the ring after Angle went above his head to speak to McMahon directly.

At that point it seemed like the WWE hierarchy were at pains to prevent Angle from making a comeback to the company with which he made his name, but there has since been some major movement in negotiations.

It now seems the tables have turned with PWInsider reporting that Kurt Angle looks set to turn down a contract offer from the WWE due to it's full time stipulations.

Kurt's demands

Despite making it fairly obvious that a return to WWE would be the ideal scenario going forward, TNA stalwart Kurt Angle appears to have been put off by the WWE insisting that he commits to a full-time schedule.

Angle is keen to work only as a part time wrestler so as to be able to pursue opportunities outside of the ring, with acting believed to be top of that list.

As has been seen with Batista in recent times, Superstars being lured by the bright lights of Hollywood is becoming a growing issue for the WWE hierarchy as they seek to keep their biggest talent without relinquishing total power to the wrestler.

As such it does not look like the WWE is willing to budge on this one and the contract, put on the table by Triple H himself, is likely to be the only one offered to Angle in the near future.

Angle's future

With a return to the WWE, an organization Angle rose to the top of during his 00s heyday, put on ice for the time being it is widely expected that the wrestler re-signs for TNA on a part-time deal for at least the next twelve months.

The wrestling community is still waiting for the official announcement (from any party) of course, but for now at least it looks like the return of one WWE legend will have to wait a little while longer.
