At the end of this week's show, Russo said that Kurt Angle direct messaged him on Twitter allowing Russo to announce that he will be going back to TNA.   

Angle on the Sting match and Hogan situation: "I don't have much to say about that day. I love Terry. I love Hulk. I think he was trying to help. Sting and I know where we want to go. If Sting and I are going to put out a five star match that everyone expected us to, I don't think Hogan needed to say anything. I know the company put him in charge. The company put him in charge. I can't blame Hogan for that. I think Hogan should have said 'What do you want to do'. He didn't, but I love Hogan. I don't have anything bad to say about him. Russo felt Sting/Angle were disrespected as they sat around and waited all day for Hogan to come in so he can chime in.  

Angle on what he's looking for that would lean him towards a wrestling company (whether he is going to WWE or TNA): "Most importantly: the right interests. At this point in my career, I can't really do a full-time schedule. I need to look at how they want to take care of me, what they want to do with me, what's important to them should be important to me and everything I do has meaning. Most important is the invested interest. Secondly, making sure I keep my life straight and that I spend time with my family. Thirdly is basically financial situation. It's not that I'm in dire need of money. Thank god I made a lot in this business. At the same time, the amount of money speaks volumes with what they want to do with you and how they want to utilize you. is the money important for a financial standpoint? No. Is it important on how important you are to the company? Yes. I want to make sure it's a best suit for me."   

Angle on Dixie Carter: "I think Dixie makes decisions, but I think it takes her a while to be an expert in the business. She's been in entertainment for a long time but not necessary wrestling. She may not know the business as well as the people she brings in. She has a big heart; perhaps too big. The way she has treated me has been nothing short of incredible. She has made some mistakes with some things she has done, with people she hired and the direction they wanted to go. It's definitely been a learning experience for her. I don't know, Vince. You made a lot of good points."  

Angle on CM Punk, McMahon and Dixie: "Dixie has the motherly love. With Vince [McMahon], he treated me like I was kind of a son. Whether he cared about me or not, he took care of me. I was the first one he called every New Year's Eve. He was always there for me. I never had a problem with him. I listened to the CM Punk interview. I don't know who's telling the truth or not. I don't know if CM Punk went over the top or not. I haven't had that type of relationship with Vince that Punk did. Dixie is not Vince. Vince knows the business like anyone else. I don't think anyone can be like Vince. Of course Vince will treat you better if you're making him money. I always had a great experience with both of them. Dixie has always treated me good. I think she has sometimes put people in charge that hasn't treated me well. I don't think it was her fault. She's the boss. With McMahon, you have to be a work horse to work in the WWE. Vince didn't put me in that situation. I put myself in the situation. I put the responsibility on me for not speaking up for three years..."  

Angle on Triple H rumors preventing his WWE comeback: "I thought about it. I've never had a problem with Triple H. When I was there, he treated me well. We did business the right way. I've seen and heard rumors about that. When I talked to WWE, Vince and I buried the hatchet from years ago and we don't have a problem with each other. I haven't heard anything about Triple H saying and doing anything that blocked me. So, even though I don't know for sure, from my experiences talking to WWE, I don't think it's a problem. I think a lot of it is rumor. But I don't know for sure. I wouldn't know. There's no way to possibly know unless he went and told me himself. I've read things but I can't believe what I read because most of what we read is bullcrap. Triple H hasn't been a problem and I don't have any problem with Triple H, WWE or Vince at all. The good thing about this the past year is Vince and I were able to be on speaking terms again and we haven't been in eight years."  

Angle on possibly being an agent in the future when his days in the ring are winding down: "My days are winding down. There's no doubt about it. I probably won't be able to go more than a year or two. I'm so good on what I do. Whether it would be in WWE or TNA, I think I have a future as an agent or in coaching/teaching. I'm actually better at coaching than as an actual wrestler. At the same time, I'm good at coaching/teaching amateur wrestling than I was as an Olympic gold medalist. I am torn on whether to go back to my amateur roots or pro wrestling. I have had offers on both sides."

Upcoming guests include: baseball player Sean Casey, King Kong Bundy, Marc Mero, Shane Douglas.
