TNA star Kurt Angle was recently interviewed by ChicagoNow.com to promote Thursday's live edition of Impact Wrestling from the Windy City. Here are some highlights of what Angle said about:
Where TNA Will Be In 5 Years: It continues to grow no doubt worldwide. We are on the road for good and we are taking little steps to improve the overall product. I believe in 5 years if things are done right we could be competing with the monster (WWE). They have amazing programming and Vince McMahon has done wonders for his product. I have been in Impact Wrestling for 7 years and I thought by now we would be up in the ratings. I believe that’s going to take a little more time.
Retirement: I might be involved in some way but not in the ring. I might have a part time schedule where I do some selected shows, which I can handle. If I decide to do that I won’t announce my retirement. But I’m going to give TNA the next 3 years of my absolute best and see what happens.
He also spoke about the International Olympic Committee's decision to pull wrestling from the 2020 Olympic games, the Attitude Era and more.
