Kurt Angle's Facebook message sparks speculation within WWE Universe

Published 7 Comments

Considering Kurt Angle hasn't actually wrestled in the WWE for a decade, his name has come up surprisingly regularly with regards to the organisation in recent times.

Last week it was to leave fans disappointed as a report claimed Vince McMahon was reluctant to re-sign the veteran wrestler due to concerns in and outside of the ring.

In the news

Today, however, it is the actions of Angle himself - specifically a Facebook post that can be seen below - which have led to speculation and anticipation within the WWE Universe.

The four-time WWF/WWE champion, who recently finished up his run in TNA, took to his official Facebook page to issue a rallying call of sorts for the wrestling community as a whole. To many fans, it was something of a 'come-and-get-me' plea:

It read:

"I see so much talent in wrestling today, but I don't believe that wrestling has an identity anymore. The Attitude Era in 1997-2002. And the Ruthless Aggression Era 2003-2009. What makes it special today besides the young array of talent?

"They need something to ignite the wrestling fans - "to ignite the Universe". It's time to lead the charge. STAY TUNED---#itstrue #letsmakewrestlinggreatagain #LMWGA."


Almost inevitably considering his references to the WWE, not to mention his history with the company and his current 'free agent' status, Angle's post has led to hundreds of comments from wrestling fans hoping it is a sign of an impending return to the WWE.

From feuding with John Cena for the US title to becoming the post-brand split GM of SmackDown, several potential comeback storylines have already been touted.

Of course, with Angle currently without a promotion having left TNA in March of this year, his Facebook post could simply be a comment on the state of professional wrestling as a whole.

However, there is no doubt that the WWE seems to be the main focus of the 47-year-old's unprompted statement.

Angle discusses two of the organisation's most successful recent eras - both of which he featured in - as well as making reference to the 'young array of talent' at a time when the WWE has been making obvious efforts to move towards a new, up-and-coming main roster.

Even in discussing the need to "ignite the Universe", it is almost impossible to think the former WWE Superstar isn't talking about the WWE Universe.


Angle himself has never ruled out a return to the WWE, but any comeback would have to be given the green light by Vince McMahon.

Whether he is willing to change his mind on the veteran star in the face of public support from WWE fans remains to be seen.
