Matt Riddle addresses Kurt Angle as his manager story Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/06/2020 at 07:34 AM
In an interview with Vicente Beltrán of ViBe & Wrestling, Matt Riddle addressed the story that Kurt Angle turned down an offer to manage him in WWE:
“To be honest I didn’t know anything because I’m always a bit in the dark every time I go to work. No one told me but Kurt and I did talk and I analyzed it and he also said that he could not do it because now he has another company on his hands, he is working outside the company and it will be like that for a while because he does not want to fail and he wants to have his mind only on that.
Anyways that wouldn’t hurt, you know … he is Kurt Angle, he is a stallion but if you ask me if I need a manager or a mouth piece or someone like that who speaks for me I would say no. I think I know myself well enough and I can handle it and speak for myself.
If you tell me down the line… maybe a manager is a good idea and I wouldn’t say no, of course, it’s Kurt Angle, but now I don’t think I need anyone, I think for the moment being myself and getting the people to know me like that is what I want and I don’t think I need a manager.” (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
