WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle is happily retired from the squared circle. He isn’t appearing on camera anymore and is content with this new chapter in his life.
In his farewell match at WrestleMania 35, Angle lost clean to Baron Corbin. He made an appearance the following night on RAW after WrestleMania and has been off TV ever since.
While the WWE Universe is under the assumption that Angle isn’t around anymore, it turns out that the Olympic Gold Medalist is more heavily involved than one could possibly imagine.
On Busted Open Radio, Angle talked about his new role in WWE – the 12-time World Champion is slowly transitioning into the role of a backstage producer in the company.
“I’m producing, I’m behind the scenes, I started last month. I’m slowly settling into a producer role. It’s kinda cool, I never thought I would like it, I always thought I would step away from the business and be done. But I actually like helping guys out and it has given me a better understanding of the business. There is a lot more to it than what we do, going out there in the ring, you have to be creative. I never thought I would enjoy it, but I do.”
It appears that Angle is enjoying his new gig. He may never wrestle again but he’s making sure that all his knowledge and experience is put to use behind the scenes.
With Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff now spearheading RAW and SmackDown respectively, it would be exciting to see how much of a difference Angle can make with his producer’s role in WWE.
Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels has already made a great impact by coaching talents in NXT and The Olympic Hero could be making a name for himself off-camera pretty soon.
