While speaking to Chris Jericho on Talk Is Jericho, Angle revealed that WWE offered him two roles after he was released. He was offered the role of NXT coach, as well as the on-screen manager of Matt Riddle. He rejected the latter role as the money was not worth it:

“They did offer me a few jobs, though. They wanted me to be a coach at NXT. Then they wanted me to manage Matt Riddle, which I was very interested in and I thought that would be really entertaining. But, the money was horrible (laughs). I’m sorry, but when we talk about money, it better be at least worth it if we were going to do it. This amount was not worth it,” Angle said.

Jericho later agreed with Angle and said the money was not good enough for the role that WWE wanted Angle to do:

“He told me what it was, it wasn’t worth it,” said Jericho. Angle later stated that he would have been interested in an ambassadorial role with WWE. But unfortunately, the company did not offer him that job.
