Kurt Angle was offered a contract by WWE chairman Vince McMahon after the 1996 Olympics. But Angle wanted a proviso: If I sign this contract, I can never lose.

After all, he had just won the freestyle wrestling gold medal, and how could a gold medalist be beaten?

“He looked at me like I was crazy,” Angle said. “I took the contract home and waited for Vince to call me and he never called me. He thought, this kid doesn’t get it.”

Raw General Manager Kurt Angle revealed Seth Rollins’ fate

The short version is that Seth Rollins is staying on Raw, but he might regret it in the long term. After a week of wringing his hands over whether or not The Kingslayer would remain on Team Red, the former WWE Champion essentially proclaimed that he had no intention of running to SmackDown LIVE, and if still-absent Commissioner Stephanie McMahon wanted him gone as revenge for his WrestleMania win over Triple H, she’d need an army to do it.

Instead, new General Manager Kurt Angle greeted The Architect and proclaimed that, despite Stephanie having made it clear she wanted Rollins off Monday Night Raw, The Olympic Hero had decided to retain Rollins to reward his efforts at The Show of Shows.

The implication of that decision was soon apparent, however, as Samoa Joe appeared in the ring and attacked. While Rollins managed to fend off The Destroyer this time, it was clear that as long as The Architect stays on Raw, the target will remain on his back as well.

As Mr. McMahon said this past Monday night, “it’s time to shake things up around here,” and on Raw, emanating from the new Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Long Island, N.Y., a Superstar Shake-up will begin that will allow representatives from both Raw and SmackDown LIVE to make trades, deals and other moves to bolster their respective rosters. WWE Hall of Famer and newly instated Raw General Manager Kurt Angle has already been in discussion with Team Blue General Manager Daniel Bryan regarding potential Superstar movement. We’ll find out how the “shake-up” affects Team Red on Monday night, with more changes coming to light on Tuesday night during SmackDown LIVE.

Will champions change their brand allegiance? Might Raw newcomers The Revival bring their no-nonsense offense to SmackDown LIVE? Will the returning Emma soon pursue Naomi’s SmackDown Women’s Championship? Could AJ Styles make Raw even more “Phenomenal”? Witness all the chaos unfold Monday night, when The Chairman’s Superstar Shake-up kicks off.

Angle, who returned to the WWE early this month after an 11-year absence, was recently named the General Manager of WWE’s flagship program, Monday Night RAW. Angle’s film credits include Pain & Gain, Warrior, and Beyond The Mat. On the television side, he recently guest starred on Those Who Can’t for TruTV.

A 1995 Olympic Style World Champion, 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist, and six-time U.S. National Champion, Angle is the only wrestler in history to win every individual title in his first year as a WWE professional wrestler. In 2008, after many years with the WWE, Angle joined TNA/Impact Wrestling where he competed until late last year.
Angle is also repped by Traverse Media, and personal manager David Hawk.
