The documentary rights were acquired by WWE. 

Back in the summer of 2022, Kurt Angle revealed that WWE acquired the rights to a documentary that is centered around his life. Angle said WWE changed it up and made it a bit more pro wrestling orientated. 

On the most recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show, the WWE Hall of Famer said the documentary is going to be released this summer. 

All I know is it’s gonna be in the summer and that’s all I know (documentary that WWE acquired from Angle). I don’t know anything else. That’s what Alex Perry, the producer and director of it told me and hopefully, it’ll be on by June.

Elsewhere during the podcast, the idea of Angle coming back to the ring to form a heel tag team with Chad Gable was brought up. 

Angle said he’d love to work with Gable but does not know if he could play the heel role at this stage of his life and career. He added that as talents get older, they usually gain more sympathy from the audience. 

I would love to be a heel with Chad Gable. He’s so entertaining. The two of us together would be unstoppable. But, I’m sorry to say — if I ever came back to wrestle, I don’t know if I’d be a heel. It’d be really difficult for me because of the career I have and the age I am. When you get older, people start having sympathy for you and they wanna cheer you on, they want you to win and it’s really hard to turn heel later on in your career. Like Undertaker, look at him. He has so much respect. He’s been in the company for 30 years and all his accomplishments. You know how hard it would be for Undertaker to be a heel right now? It’s almost impossible and I think I’m comparable to that.

Earlier this year, Kurt Angle was featured in a D-Generation X segment at WWE Raw 30 and he refereed a six-man tag on the show
