Kurt Angle may be back with the WWE, but his in-ring return is still up in the air.
Angle returned to the company after being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame earlier this year before WrestleMania 33. He was later revealed to be the new General Manager of Monday Night RAW after the Superstar Shakeup.
While fans love seeing Angle back on WWE TV on a weekly basis once again, they still want to see one more match from the former Olympic Gold Medalist.
Angle recently did an interview withWrestle Zone to discuss the possibility of wrestling in the WWE ring again, and he said he believes the WWE is currently monitoring his recovery from drug addiction before allowing him to wrestle again:
"They haven’t talked to me about it. I’m sure they won’t until the last second (laughs). That’s ok with me. I think what they are doing right now is, this is just my own opinion, they’re monitoring to see how I am doing.
"They want to see, “Is this kid really in recovery? Does he really have his life together? Is he coming here clean? Is he doing ok? Is his health ok?”
"They see me working out at the gym. They see me every RAW doing what I have to do. They’re saying,
“Prove to us that you are ok and we can give you what you want.” I’m cool with that. I understand that. I understand they are going to drug test me continuously."
Angle believes that he will wrestle for the WWE again, and stresses that it's not a matter of if, but when the company gives him the green light to get back to work inside the ring:
"It’s one of those things where they are going to monitor me and see how I do. I don’t think it’s an issue of “if” they are going to I think it’s “when”.
"That’s my opinion but I will be wrestling down the road at some point. It might not be this year, it might be next year, I don’t know.
"They haven’t said a word but my guess is I will wrestle again in WWE. I just don’t know when."
So again, Angle continues to stick to his guns and believes that an in-ring return in the WWE will happen. If the WWE does decide to wait until next year for Angle's return it would most likely take place at WrestleMania 34.
Who would you like to see Angle wrestle if he does return at WrestleMania?
