Angle spoke at the end of April about transitioning into this new role. He mentioned that he had signed a five year deal with the company that could include some on-camera work, managing wrestlers, and production.
“I signed a five-year deal with WWE. I’m going to do some part-time, if they need me in front of the TV, maybe managerial, where I would be managing some wrestlers, but the most important thing is I’m going to be a producer. I’m going to help the wrestlers with their technique. I’m going to help them structure their matches. It’s something I’m very good at. I thought I’d be able to contributor the company.”
