Kurt Angle Could Wrestle One More Match “Like Ric Flair”

Kurt Angle could be open to wrestle one more match, after seeing Ric Flair’s last match earlier this year. The legendary Nature Boy wrestled on final match this year at the age of 73, when he tagged with Andrade to face Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal. The match did huge numbers and gave the two time hall of famer a huge moment to go out on (please retire Ric).

Kurt Angle himself had a disappointing final match. He wrestled Baron Corbin at Wrestlemania 35 in a lower-card match that he revealed “does hurt”. Most wanted him to go out against John Cena but he understood the story needing to be told and accepted the final bout with The Lone Wolf.

However, during a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Kurt Angle revealed he would be open to a tag team match for him to come out of retirement for a Ric Flair-esque match. He wants the match to be “ against younger guys that could carry me” and that he would make it a tag match so he wouldn’t be exposed for being out of ring shape.

When asked about wrestling one more match, Kurt Angle very candidly said;

“I don’t think so. I had a knee replacement five months ago. I’m good. I think I’ve had a good enough career that I’m very proud of. If it does come to be, then it will probably be a tag match like Ric Flair did so that I don’t get exposed. I hate to say it, but I’m not exactly the same wrestler I used to be. But if I did decide to have a wrestling match, it would be against younger guys that could carry me. And I’d make sure that it was a tag match, so I was not exposed.”

“It’s hard to say this right now because I’m basically telling the fans, ‘Hey, I can’t really wrestle anymore but watch me in my next match!’ But I’m just telling the truth. I’m an honest person, and I’m just saying I’m not like I used to be and never will be. But you know what, maybe down the road, I might do a tag match.”

Kurt Angle was offered a contract to wrestle for AEW but turned it down to remain in retirement.
