Since his return to the company, fans are still waiting on Kurt Angle wrestling again.
Ever since it was announced that the former WWE Champion would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, fans started speculating that he would wrestle again in the biggest sports entertainment company in the world. Angle even believes that as he has stated his beliefs in various interviews.
However, instead of WWE booking him into a program right away, the company decided to go into a different direction with him as they fired fellow WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley as the general manager of Monday Night Raw and replaced him with Angle.
Some people believed that this was a way in order for Angle to pass his medical tests in order to get cleared to step back into the squared circle. Leading up to the event, there were even rumors that Angle would return to the ring at SummerSlam against Triple H. Obviously, that match didn’t happen.
By looking back at the angle, the belief was that WWE was doing his scandal storyline involving the WWE Hall of Famer in order to bring back Stephanie McMahon to television and lead to a rivalry with Triple H. However, that is not the case. Instead, WWE had Angle reveal that Jason Jordan was his illegitimate son.
According to CageSide Seats, Angle has yet to take a physical to wrestle for WWE, but there's plenty of talk his wrestling return will start or begin being teased around Royal Rumble in January.
WWE 2K18 is set to be released on October 17th on Xbox One and PS4. It’s well known by now that Seth Rollins is featured on the cover of the game while the Raw General Manager will be the pre-order bonus character.
Angle took to his Instagram account and teased having a match with Rollins last month. Rollins has also gone on record by saying that he would like to wrestle the WWE Hall of Famer. It’s possible that WWE books a match between them at Royal Rumble or at WrestleMania. The chances of Angle actually wrestling in the Royal Rumble match is slim due to the fact that it makes no sense for his first match back to be in that.
