Could Kurt Angle Be in the WWE Title Hunt When He Returns?
Since the announcement of Kurt Angle's induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, there has be A LOT of speculation and rumor about a possible in ring return to for the company. Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer reported last week that Angle will be returning to the ring following Mania if he can pass a physical. And it sounds like Kurt is behind that and a WHOLE lot more.
During an appearance on the Ring Rust Radio Podcast, Angle opened up about his possible return to the ring and what that could entail:
It does give me a lot of hope. I wouldn’t doubt once we get past the Hall of Fame, I take the physical and pass it—which most likely they are going to want me to do—I wouldn’t doubt that I would be in the title hunt. When you have big names like that you have to use them the right way. You don’t put them on an opening card match and not promote that. When you have a name like Goldberg or Brock Lesnar come back, or the Undertaker comes back when he’s been gone for 10 months, or a Kurt Angle that hasn’t been there in 12 years, you’re going to want to put them in a pretty high profile spot.
And if you're wondering if Angle could still go like he could 12 years ago, just watch this recent match with Cody Rhodes and tell me.
