Retired WWE Legend Says He'd Wrestle In Saudi Arabia "For $3 Million"

WWE would have to cough up a ton of cash to get this icon back in the ring.

Kurt Angle recently told listeners tuning into his podcast that he'd happily accept a hefty pay check from WWE to wrestle in Saudi Arabia regardless of his physical condition.

The company Hall Of Famer heard a rumour that Shawn Michaels was paid $3m for his comeback match at Crown Jewel 2018. That's when Kurt said he'd take that gig on for similar money "in a second" - the Olympian doesn't even care if his knees are "good or bad" that day.

Angle last wrestled vs. Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 in 2019, but he has made several cameo appearances on WWE TV since. There's been no threat of another proper in-ring showing for the legend though, which he's content with.


Kurt would like to get paid a shedload of cash to work a bout in Saudi, and he isn't ashamed to admit it.

HBK's first match since 2010 was heavily panned by critics. He teamed with old DX pal Triple H to beat The Undertaker and Kane at Crown Jewel just over four years ago, but everyone (including the men involved in it) agreed that it wasn't a good match.
