On the latest episode of The Kurt Angle Show, it was revealed by Kurt Angle himself that Brock Lesnar had reached out to him to try to get in the door at TNA back when Angle was in the company.
"Okay, Brock calls me. He's not in WWE. He says, 'Listen, man, can you get me in TNA? —' I probably shouldn't even be saying this, but you know what, Brock doesn't care. So he said, 'Hey, what are you making?' I told him what I was making and he said, 'If you can get me that, I'll come.'
"I approached TNA, and they said, ‘No, we’re not going to give him that kind of money. It was amazing because, I think that TNA at the time, I think they were at the top of their budget, where they couldn’t really give any more money out. I was making a lot of money. Sting was making a good bit of money, and then you had a bunch of guys on the roster. TNA, the Carter family funded it for a long time, and then TNA started making their own money, but it just wasn’t enough to bring in another guy for seven figures a year. I don’t think they were capable of doing that.”
