WWE legend Kurt Angle talks about the possibility of another match

Kurt Angle’s last match was a loss to Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35, and some fans are still hoping he’ll step inside the squared circle again, but that appears to be a long way off at this time.

Speaking with legendary wrestling journalist Bill Apter in an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, the former champ admitted that he is not the wrestler he used to be and is proud of what he has accomplished during his career.

“I don’t think so. I had a knee replacement five months ago. I’m fine. I think I’ve had a good enough career that I’m very proud of. If that happens, it will be. It’s probably a tag match like Ric Flair so it won’t be revealed.” I hate to say it, but I’m not exactly the same wrestler I used to be. But if I decide to have a wrestling match, it’s against guys who can hold me. And I’ll make sure it’s a tag match, so I wasn’t exposed,” Angle said. (from 02:35 to 03:05)
