It's been widely speculated for months but ever since Kurt Angle left TNA, everyone has been wondering when the Olympic champion will finally return to WWE after a more than decade long absence. The latest murmurs, according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, is that it's possible Angle could return in April of next year, just after WrestleMania.
"For whatever this is worth, and keep in mind this wouldn’t be the first time this has been said, but Kurt Angle has told promoters he’s doing no more indie dates except one match with Alberto [El Patron] and another with Cody Rhodes, and then going to WWE in April. Keep in mind his people have claimed that for some time and WWE sources have denied it. There are all kinds of rumors regarding Angle and WWE, and there would be, since WWE has in recent years changed its position on people who would “never” be back like Warrior and Goldberg.
Angle was always a Vince McMahon call, as ever since he left TNA early this past year, he’s made it clear he wants to go back and things like being the new character in the video game and going into the Hall of Fame make sense as there is a very short list for the former and a fairly short list for guys who can be in the top two or three spots for the latter and he checks both off. As far as wrestling goes, it would have to be a Goldberg/Lesnar thing of only a few matches."
Too early to start getting excited?
