WWE exclusive: Kurt Angle expects Dean Ambrose to return in the future

Kurt Angle has spoken out about Dean Ambrose’s departure from WWE last year.

The Hall of Famer believes that Ambrose, who now wrestles in AEW under the name Jon Moxley, felt like he wasn’t being appreciated and wanted a change. 

“I don’t follow AEW, but I get wind of it,” Angle told GIVEMESPORT. 

“Dean wanted a change and an adjustment. Maybe he felt he wanted to work less and felt that he wasn’t being appreciated. 

“He made the decision for himself and if he feels it’s the right decision I’m happy for him. 

But WWE is the biggest company in the world at it will continue to be. I believe Dean will be back.

It’s certainly interesting that Angle thinks we’ll see Moxley in a WWE ring again. The American Hero also had high praise for The Shield as a whole, naming them as a future Hall of Fame faction. 

“Oh, they’re great. The Shield is a future Hall of Fame faction. To be part of it [in 2017] was a load of fun,” he said. 

“The three of them – Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean, they have all main-evented and won world championships.

“They are the most popular faction of all-time if you don’t count the four horsemen.” 

Angle was part of a Shield storyline when he was General Manager of RAW a couple of years ago.

He was undoubtedly a popular figure in the role but insists he’s happy with his new job off-screen as a backstage producer.

“I’ll do what they need me to do but I don’t have any plans of being on-screen anymore. If the company need me to do it then I will.

“I’ve been as loyal as I can to Vince McMahon and WWE and if there’s an opportunity I’ll take it. If not, I’m happy where I am.”
