Update on Kurt Angle's current role with WWE Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/01/2019 at 12:47 PM
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Kurt Angle commented on his current role with WWE:
"I'm producing, I'm behind the scenes, I started last month," Angle explained. "I'm slowly settling into a producer role. It's kinda cool, I never thought I would like it, I always thought I would step away from the business and be done. But I actually like helping guys out and it has given me a better understanding of the business. There is a lot more to it than what we do, going out there in the ring, you have to be creative. I never thought I would enjoy it, but I do."
Angle also commented on Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff becoming Executive Directors for WWE and potential challenges:
"The ratings have been pretty stagnant," Angle stated. "It just sounds like they want to give something a try and I do not blame them. The WWE right now, they are a publicly traded company that makes more money now, than they ever did before, that includes the Attitude Era."
"They (WWE) are making more money now because of TV deals, and these shows (international specials), WWE Network, merchandise, endorsements, the money just keeps coming in," Angle said. "They have shareholders, they want to make sure it's a family program and geared towards kids. The writing gets to be a little more difficult when you're trying to write PG all the time."
