Kurt Angle talks about his future projects

Several WWE Superstars have featured in A&E documents, including Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Randy Savage, Steve Austin, Booker T, Mick Foley and The Ultimate Warrior. After all these great WWE Hall of Famers, another legend like Kurt Angle will also be in a documentary of this kind, the announcement during an exclusive episode of "The Kurt Angle Show"

On his future plans and his first book, Kurt Angle stated: "I have a documentary coming out, it will be on A&E on August 28. After that documentary, I will start my book, my second book. I probably shouldn't have done it at that particular moment my second.

book. The reason I did it is that no one else wanted to do it. Stone Cold, The Undertaker, The Rock, none of them wanted to do a book at the time and Vince McMahon came up to me and said 'Hey, I know you are starting to wrestle and work here but you can also write about your Olympic career.'

I replied, 'I shouldn't have to wait a few years to have a career in wrestling a little longer before I start telling all about a book.' And he said 'No, it's just about your Olympic career and what you've done up to that point.'


What's next for Kurt Angle?

Kurt Angle's first book came out in 2001 but wasn't very successful in professional wrestling. At that time, Angle had only been fighting in WWE for a year and his book only highlighted his career in amateur wrestling and his path to becoming an Olympic gold medalist.

Although his documentary is not confirmed whether it will be part of A&E's 'Biography: WWE Legends' series, the other 35 episodes of the series are currently in production, with the first one expected to highlight The Iron Sheik's career.

He was also teased during an episode with Billy Gunn, the latter confirmed having given interviews for a project in conversation with Wrestling Inc editor-in-chief Nick Hausman. In addition, even Cody Rhodes has confirmed that his father Dusty will have a documentary dedicated to him on A&E and will be produced by The American Nightmare.

On the latest episode of his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, the former WWE Superstar recalled how he almost quit wrestling to pursue a career as a professional football player in NFL. Angle had lost confidence in his chances as an amateur wrestler and decided to try out for his hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"It was 1994 and I wasn't having really good luck in making the Olympic team and the World team. So they have Olympic teams and World teams tryouts, and the first two years in 1993 and 1994 I didn't make the team."
