Kurt Angle Finally Reveals Plans After TNA

(Michael Tran/FilmMagic)

It seems like this always happens this time of year, Kurt Angle’s contract is ending with Total Nonstop Action and speculations of what he will do next always arise. Will he finally make his long awaited return to the WWE? Or will he continue his long tenure with TNA? Well the answer for now is neither.

Ringside news has found out the latest:

We reported awhile back that Kurt Angle will not be re-signing with TNA Wrestling once his contract expires in January. Instead Kurt will be taking a break from professional wrestling, but does not intending on retiring from it.

Angle recently mentioned on his website in a new blog entry that he has a college degree in education and wants to put that to use by teaching others. This has been something Angle has been wanting to do for some time now.

Here is an excerpt from Angle’s entry:

“My ‘long shot’ dream was to be an Olympic Champion. Winning gold was my lifelong dream. I also had another passion, to be a teacher…to teach our youth. I have a college degree in education. I accomplished my ultimate dream, winning gold in the 1996 Olympics, but now that I’ve accomplished it, I want to use my college education to help others and to teach others.”

Angle has been in TNA now for just under a decade and when he left the WWE in 2006 he was their highest paid athlete at the time. Kurt has won the top honor in the promotion of TNA 6 times and 5 times in the WWE. He’s also received the honor of “Wrestler of the Decade” by the Wrestling Observer Publication.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
