Kurt Angle Net Worth $30 Million
Kurt Angle was extremely passionate about wrestling from his childhood, and began attending amateur wrestling lessons when he was seven years old. Angle really advanced his amateur wrestling career in college, enrolling at Clarion University of Pennsylvania, and graduating with a degree in education in 1993. He won the National Collegiate Athletic Association(NCAA) championship twice. In 1996, Kurt Angle took part in the Olympic Games in Atlanta, and even though he suffered various injuries, he managed to win the gold medal in the heavyweight division.
Kurt’s prospects for a professional career were very good, but he initially turned down a deal with the World Wrestling Federation(WWF) but was subsequently convinced to attend the Extreme Championship Wrestling as a guest commentator. Kurt Angle eventually began his professional wrestling career in 1998, when he signed a contract with WWF. Originally portrayed as a “good guy”, Kurt Angle took a twist on his ring personality and turned himself into an arrogant villain who was strongly hated by the audience. This, however, did not prevent him from winning both European Championship as well as an Intercontinental Championship in 2000. Later that year, Angle competed against the famous wrestler The Rock and secured himself a win for the WWF Championship title. Kurt Angle was the first wrestler to hold the Olympic Gold medal, as well as the WWF title at the same time. This historic moment could be considered a peak in Angle’s long wrestling career, and certainly boosted his net worth.
Kurt Angle once again proved himself in 2002 by winning the WWE Grand Slam Championship. Throughout his wrestling career in the WWF/E, Kurt has now been a world champion six times, Intercontinental, as well as European champion, and a WWE Tag Team champion.
When he moved to Total Non-stop Action Wrestling (TNA), Angle continued his successful winning streak by securing the TNA World Heavyweight title, as well as the TNA World Tag Team Championship title. Besides TNA and WWF/E, Kurt has been taking part in the New Japan Pro Wrestling league, Asistencia Asesoría y Administración, and desired to appear in the mixed martial arts sport (MMA) but failed the health requirements, which perhaps prompted at least a partial retirement.
Often referred to as “The Wrestling Machine” and “The Cyborg”, Kurt Angle has been working as an Executive Director of Wrestling Operations in the TNA league since 2014.
Although mostly known as a professional wrestler, Kurt has been making appearances on television screens as well. Angle’s acting career includes such movies as “End Game”, the horror film “River of Darkness” in which he co-stars with fellow wrestler Kevin Nash, Gavin O’Connor’s “Warrior”, and a 2014 movie portraying a security guard and entitled “Not Cool”. Kurt Angle has also appeared in several television series, including “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and “The Big Breakfast”, all adding to his net worth.
In his personal life, Kurt Angle was married to Karen Jarrett (1998–2008), and since 2012 has been married to Giovanna Yannotti. Angle is a Christian, and is still based in Pittsburgh.
