11. Big Update On Who Kurt Angle Is Scheduled To Face In His WWE Return Match, Old School WWF Veteran Asked About Sylverster Stallone
– As we noted before, WWE Hall of Famer and current Raw General Manager Kurt Angle’s “ruin me” storyline on Raw will eventually result in the return of Stephanie McMahon to WWE programming.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, this will result in Triple H somehow getting involved and eventually the storyline will end up featuring Kurt Angle’s WWE in-ring return, possibly against Triple H.
With The Undertaker retiring this year at WrestleMania 33, there’s a pretty good chance that WWE books Angle’s in-ring return at next year’s WrestleMania 34. Speaking of Angle vs. HHH, you can watch their steel cage match from an episode of Raw in 2002 below:
