In an interview with Mark Madden on 105.9 The X in Pittsburgh, TNA Wrestling superstar Kurt Angle commented on the potential of a WWE return, if his body would be able to work the full-time WWE schedule, his recovery from ACL surgery and more.

Thanks to for the highlights of the interview below:

On his ACL surgery and recovery: “I’m actually doing really well, I’m far ahead of schedule, but I still have a few months before I get back in the ring.”

On having the time off because of his injury: “I didn’t take any time off in almost 15 years, so it felt really good, I needed the rest, that was part of the reason why I even had the ACL surgery. It was a partial tear, but I would’ve had it eventually but I figured this would give me some rest time while I have it repaired before it gets worse.”

On potentially joining the WWE when his TNA contract expires: “I’m still in the process. My contract’s up September 21st. I will say this, TNA has been really loyal to me and there is an obligation there, but at the same time, I have to do what’s best for me. I haven’t quite decided yet, it wouldn’t be a surprise either way, it’s just that I’m going to have to bear down right now and by the end of September, I’ll have my decision.”

On whether the door is actually open for a WWE return: “I think it’s always an open door, it’s really about what you can give, what they want from you and what you want from them. At the end of the day, you have to agree on all terms, so it really comes down to how much they want to use me and how much I want to be used.”

On whether his body could work a full-time WWE schedule: “No, not at all, I wouldn’t expect it to. You know, 15 years of hard pro wrestling and I went a lot of full-time in TNA until the last 2 and a half years. I would hope they wouldn’t expect me to do it. I know TNA does not expect me to do that either, so where ever I end up, it’s going to be part-time.”

On TNA Wrestling’s TV deal: “It all depends, right now the deal is not done, it all depends on how much TNA wants to stay and how much Spike wants to pay them. I don’t think it’s ever been an issue that Spike no longer wanted TNA, I think TNA is probably asking for more money and Spike wants to give them what they did before. I believe that it has a lot to do with the agency that TNA signed with, UTA, as they’re showing that TNA has value and that they are worth more. Other networks have been considered, so I think TNA would like to stay on Spike and it’s just a matter of where they can meet in the middle to make it happen.”
