• Former WWF Champion Wants To Return For One Last Match
During a Q&A on AdFreeShows, former WWF Champion Kurt Angle was asked if he thinks about coming out of retirement for one more match.
Below is what the 2017 WWE Hall Of Famer said:
“I’m not gonna lie to you. [The thought of a return] comes across my mind here and there every once in a while but I just had knee replacements.
I’m in no position to think about wrestling right now. It’s been two and a half months since I had my knees replaced. Both at the same time. It’s a little rough doing both of them at the same time. But you know what I’m not gonna count out anything.
I’ve told so many reporters and people from the news that I was done but there is a chance that I might end up coming back. I don’t know when, but it’ll probably be for one last match. I guess I’m putting it out there tonight.
I didn’t wanna do that until my knees got better but I’m not gonna lie to you. I think about it all the time. I possibly could [return], yes.”
Angle’s last match took place at WrestleMania 35 in 2019, where he lost to Baron Corbin.

• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 84th birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend “The Masked Assassin” Jody Hamilton (Real name: Joseph Hamilton).
Jody Hamilton wrestled for several territories during the 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s, before a back injury forced him to retire from active professional wrestling in 1988.
As Assassin #1 he was one half of the famous old school Tag Team The Assassins aka The Masked Assassins, but over the years Jody had several partners under the mask of Assassin #2, such as Roger Smith, Tom Renesto, “Moondog Rex” Randy Colley and even Hercules Hernandez.
In 1993, Hamilton worked for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as a heel manager for Pretty Wonderful (Paul Orndorff & Paul Roma).
In 1994, he was inducted into the short-lived WCW Hall of Fame, but he has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which – if it actually happens – is most likely going to happen as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
August 28, 1938 – August 3, 2021
