Kurt Angle, a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, recently announced that he would demand $10 million to rejoin the organization for one last match against Shane McMahon.
Angle and Shane O’Mac occasionally shared the ring between 2000 and 2018. Their Street Fight match at King of the Ring in June 2001, however, was their most enduring contest. McMahon lost the fight. Later that year on Monday Night RAW, he lost to the six-time world champion in another match.
Kurt Angle wants $10 million to return
On the most recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show, the Olympic gold medalist talked about the prospect of participating in one more fight for the Stamford-based organization. He said that given the perfect circumstances, he would be willing to compete against Shane McMahon at WrestleMania.
“Oh man, that’s tough. It would have to be a lot of money man. I’m talking like $10 million [laughs]. WWE could afford it so,” he said.
Angle regrets never facing Bret Hart
The Stamford-based business hired Bret Hart in 1984. Before quitting in 1997 as a result of the infamous Montreal Screwjob event at Survivor Series, he was there for around 13 years. After almost a year, Kurt Angle joined WWE. Three years after Angle left, in 2009, Hart was once again promoted. The Hitman was unable to compete with the Olympic gold medallist when he made a comeback in 2017.
The 53-year-old superstar admitted during a K&S WrestleFest interview that he once advocated for a WrestleMania match between him and Hart. The Hitman’s health problems, though, made it impossible.
“I wanted to get him at ‘Mania, but by then with his stroke and him getting a concussion and everything it just wasn’t going to work,” Angle said.
