Kurt Angle recently sat down with Sports Illustrated, where the legendary superstar spoke about being released from WWE, a possible return to wrestling, and much more.

Check out some of the highlights below:

On release from WWE:

It was almost a blessing in disguise that WWE released me, [Physically Fit Nutrition] started picking up orders, and we’re at a point where I really need to be here. We have chicken snacks called Chxn Snx, and they will be a number one seller. This will not only be available on Amazon, but also in convenience stores, health food stores, groceries, and bulk stores like Costco and Sam’s Club.

On a potential return to wrestling:

Right now, I can’t, Could my mind be changed? Yes, for two reasons. I’m working on my business, and I’ve been doing a lot of rehab on my body, trying to get myself back to where I’m able to live a healthy lifestyle. I’d been so banged up—my neck, my back, and my neck—but I’m making improvements. If I get to the point where I feel I can do it, then I’ll probably do it. But right now, I have to focus on my body.
