Kurt Angle spoke with The Big J Show earlier this morning if he’d rather do a UFC appearance or a WWE return.

“I am happy where I am. I dabbled with UFC, talked to Dana White a couple different times. Came up with contracts but couldn’t agree on a starting date. Now it’s too late for me, I’m 44, I’m turning 45 in December, I would have loved to have done it. It just wasn’t in the cards. I love Dana White, and we were able to reach an agreement. The starting times were just too early for me.”

Angle commented on the support from TNA through his recent rehab stint.

“They have been awesome. I had to take some time out and clear my head and physically get better. TNA has been awesome. They have been 100% supportive. Dixie Carter has been amazing. The WWE Rehabilitation program has been awesome for me. My road to recovery is great. I’m really happy to be where I am right now.”

Angle almost discussed being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

“You have to be. I am very honored to be in the TNA Wrestling Hall of Fame, but any hall of fame especially the WWE Hall Of Fame you wanna be a part of it. That’s where I started. I have to give them credit on my character development. Teaching me my skills. You always want to be apart of their Hall of Fame. It’s legendary.”
