Kurt Angle isn’t limiting his return for one last match ato WWE Superstars. He is ready to wrestle anybody, provided he gets the ten million!

“I’ll wrestle Kenny for ten million. I’ll get my a** kicked.”

However, he explained that more than convincing a company to pay him ten million, it would be harder to convince Mrs. Angle to let him wrestle one last time. In fact, he would lie about a business trip and apologize when he returned with a check and bandages.
