On a recent episode of Smack Talk, Wrestling Legend Dutch Mantell (fka WWF Manager Uncle Zebekiah, WWE Manager Zeb Colter) said that he wants Kurt Angle to return to WWE and put over current United States Champion Austin Theory, just like John Cena did at this year’s WrestleMania.
Here’s what Mantell had to say about Kurt coming back to feud with Theory:
“I don’t think it could hurt. If they’re able to get what Cena said out of people’s minds or if they’re even still thinking about that, I’m sure it’s in the back of their heads.
But I think him and Angle could have some great skits, some great backstage stuff, stuff in the ring. It’s gonna be kinda not funny but cute, smarta$$ and Kurt was great with that stuff.
So just an idea, I think it’ll help Theory a lot.”
Kurt Angle wrestled his last professional wrestling match at the WWE WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view on April 7th 2019, which he lost to Baron Corbin.
The former 13-time World Heavyweight Champion (2x WWF Champion, 2x WWE Champion, 1x WCW World Heavyweight Champion in the WWF, 1x World Heavyweight Champion in WWE, 6x TNA World Champion, 1x IWGP Heavyweight Champion) has been officially retired ever since.
However, Angle has teased coming out of retirement multiple times since then.
