After his Farewell tour, legendary TNA Impact Wrestling star Kurt Angle plans on taking time off, but he doesn’t rule out the possibilities of fighting inside the cage.
Angle was part of the recent Legends of Wrestling event in Miami, where he made a cameo during the event.
He spoke to The Roman Show about any possibility of fighting inside the Bellator cage. He recently signed to commentate for the promotion.
“My next date is February in Houston,” he said. “The main event is Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock. I’ll be commentating some on that night. They are having me get my feet wet. Maybe later down the road, if I do decide to fight, the chances are one percent that I fight and 99 that I don’t. I don’t plan on fighting, but if I feel good, my body is going well I might consider it down the road. But right now I’ll say no. But I do enjoy being part of Bellator. They have their own theory with what they want to do. They take chances, and I love it. They are different.”
He also discussed who could be a potential opponent.
“When it comes down to it, look, I am 47-years-old. Kenny and Gracie are in their early 50’s, Dan Severn is in his early mid-50s. Of course, I am not going to wrestle or fight someone in his prime. It’s not going to happen. It will be one of the older guys. But it will be a hell of fight whether its Kimbo Slice, Ken Shamrock, Dan Severn or whoever it is or even Rocye Gracie. But if I do decide to do it, it will be with a Hall of Famer, not someone in their prime.”
He also spoke about training in martial arts.
“I’ve done jiu-jitsu,” he said. “I’ve done it a couple of years. I was getting the hang of it. It’s hard as an Olympic wrestler with the technique. But once you get the hang of it, it flows.”
Angle is on his farewell tour from professional wrestling and has his plans set.
“I think down the road. I am going to take a year off. I am going to have fun with Bellator. I signed with an agency in Hollywood. I’ll get into some acting. I want to take some time off and spend time with my family. I’ll see where it’ll take me.”
