Both wrestlers now ply their trade in TNA, and MVP, real name Alvin Burke, claimed that he signed with the company with designs on colliding with the Olympic gold medal winner.
"Kurt's out with knee surgery - I don't know how long he's going to be out, and I'm not really sure at this stage of his life and his career, how much longer he'll be with us - I don't want to speculate.
"I do know if you lace up a pair of boots, Kurt Angle is someone you want to get in the ring with. If that doesn't happen, I will truly feel like this has been a missed opportunity for me - selfishly."
MVP left WWE in 2010.
