WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle, renowned for his remarkable in-ring career and memorable segments, recently shared his thoughts on future engagements with WWE. Speaking at Steel City Con's Q&A panel, Angle expressed enthusiasm for continued collaborations with WWE, albeit in a non-wrestling role.

This sentiment comes after his impactful appearances on WWE programming, highlighting his enduring connection with the company and its fanbase. At 55, Angle humorously remarked about feeling much older, clearly stating his wrestling days are behind him.

However, his passion for the industry and willingness to participate in promotional activities remains undiminished. Angle fondly recalled a nostalgic segment from WWE SmackDown in December 2022, where he humorously reprised a famous scene from 2001, involving a milk truck and a playful dousing of Chad Gable and Otis.

This segment was a delightful homage to his past antics against Stone Cold Steve Austin, demonstrating WWE's creative use of Angle's legacy.

Moreover, Angle's relationship with WWE is formalized through a contractual agreement, suggesting more collaborative ventures in the future.

He hinted at potential involvement in marquee events like WrestleMania or Royal Rumble, known for surprise appearances and special segments. His willingness to engage in "something crazy" with WWE teases fans with the possibility of unexpected and entertaining appearances.

Angle's most recent appearance on WWE television was a memorable one. On January 23, 2023, during the 30th-anniversary episode of WWE Raw, he joined wrestling legends from DX – Shawn Michaels, Triple H, X-Pac, and Road Dogg.

This segment, initially a nostalgic reunion, quickly escalated into a storyline confrontation with Imperium members GUNTHER, Ludwig Kaiser, and Giovanni Vinci. The twist came when Seth Rollins and The Street Profits arrived, leading to Angle's impromptu offer to be the special guest referee for their six-man tag team match.

Angle's involvement in these segments not only underscores his legendary status but also illustrates his adaptability and charisma in non-wrestling capacities. His ability to entertain and connect with the audience, irrespective of his in-ring status, makes him a valuable asset to WWE's programming.

As WWE continues to evolve, the potential for Kurt Angle's creative and engaging contributions remains a tantalizing prospect for fans worldwide.
