Kurt Angle was lucky enough to have a long career in the squared circle, but he officially hung up his boots when he was defeated by Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35.
Sting also officially hung up his boots when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016, but as we all know, retirement in professional wrestling is very rarely forever.
Kurt Angle and Sting certainly aren’t strangers, and some have wondered if Kurt could eventually return to the ring in AEW. However, during a recent episode of the Kurt Angle Show the Hall of Famer explained why a match between himself and Sting just wouldn’t work.
“Well considering I’m 52 and Sting’s a lot older than I am, I’d say the chances are no, slim to none. For many reasons, we’re too old. We’re not too old to wrestle younger guys, you wrestle a younger guy who can spice up the match and make it a little more interesting, you can have some great matches still. When you start losing a step and you’re both older and both lost a step, it’s really hard to make that up.”
“Undertaker vs. Goldberg, they were both up in age but if you put Goldberg with Brock Lesnar or Undertaker with AJ Styles, or switch them around, you’re going to get a great match. The younger guy keeps the match flowing, keeps the match moving. To have two older guys who should most likely be retired but they can still go, it’s going to be a lot more difficult to have a successful match.”
