Kurt Angle did not get the job he wanted in WWE, but he says the company offered a few other options while he was there.

Kurt Angle spoke with Chris Jericho further Talk Is Jericho (recorded on Chris Jericho’s Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager at Sea: Triple Whammy) about his career, which included a return to WWE in 2017. Angle originally talked about how he returned as RAW General Manager before detailing some of his work behind the scenes. Angle worked briefly as an agent, saying he was not very good in that role, but understood why he was eventually released.

“That’s what I ended up with, after I retired, I took the job as a producer / agent. I did it for a year, I was not very good at it. The thing is, I do not like computers and you have to use a damn computer all the time. Vince says, ‘Kurt opens your computer!’ and I do not even know how to do this. I was good at giving the guys ideas for the fights, but I was not a quality producer, “Angle said,” so when the pandemic occurred, I was one of the first to let go, and I do not blame Vince for that.

Asked by Jericho why he did not blame Vince, Angle said he was not a full producer and felt he was not doing his job to the highest level. Angle then said he would have liked to have been a WWE ambassador and travel for the company, but he was not offered such a job. Angle, however, explained that he was offered a few other roles and told Jericho why they ultimately did not strike out.

“However, they offered me a couple of jobs. They wanted me to coach at NXT. Then they wanted me to manage Matt Riddle, which I was very interested in, and I thought it would be really entertaining, but the money was awful. I’m sorry, but when we talk about money, “Angle explained,” at least it must be worth it if we want to do it. This amount was not worth it, even to all of you. I do not compare, I’m just telling you. ”

Jericho then said that Angle told him what the offer was outside the camera and it was really not worth it.

“He told me what it was, it was not worth it,” Jericho said. “Let me put it this way – I think I was able to convince him to get on this cruise when I said I could afford more than that.”
