According to an interview posted at Movieline.com, Kurt Angle announced yesterday that he just signed a new three year deal with iMPACT Wrestling. Some of you may remember a similar story from just a few months ago, where Kurt Angle announced via Twitter that he signed a three and a half year deal with the promotion. So, it appears that yesterday’s revelation by Kurt Angle isn’t really a revelation at all, but rather a continuance of an existing agreement that he had with the company.
Here is the portion of the interview text where Angle reveals that he signed a new three year contract with iMPACT Wrestling:
How much were you acting before beginning your wrestling career with the WWE?
I was taking classes and I was getting very serious about it. I was also sportscasting — I was a sportscaster in Pittsburgh for Fox, just trying to get in front of the camera a little bit. Then pro wrestling came around and I took a shot at that, and I didn’t realize I was going to become that good. I made a lot of money, thank God, and I stuck with it, but every time I had a movie where my name would come up for some reason, I wasn’t allowed to do it due to scheduling reasons in the WWE. So with TNA, they give me the opportunity to go ahead and do movies and if it conflicts with the schedule they work around it. It’s a much better situation for me. So I actually signed a new three-year deal today with TNA. I’m going to stick with TNA.
The interview is actually pretty good so I recommend heading over to Movieline.com to give it a read. Enjoy!
