• Original Plans For Kurt Angle’s WWE Return In 2022
WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle recently revealed on his podcast that WWE was bringing him back for a short storyline in February.
However, that plan has been canceled now.
Angle gave the following update on his podcast:
“I went to the Royal Rumble. The WWE wanted me to do a short program that they ended up canceling at the the very last moment, but we went to the Rumble, my wife and I.
I also did some documentary interviews the day before, a photo op with the fans, but I want to make it clear I am in no way signed to WWE.
They were going to sign me anyway. It was going to be a 3-week program. It got canceled, but you know, my obligation is to do the show, the Kurt Angle Show, and that’s it.”
According to Fightful Select, there were plans for Angle to be a part of the RAW Tag Team Championship feud:
“Angle was originally figured in to the RK-BRO vs. Alpha Academy plans. There were pitches that the academic challenge would even be the ‘Three Is Challenge’, playing off of Angle’s wrestling days.
There were also discussions regarding Angle serving as a special guest referee in Saudi Arabia at the Elimination Chamber event.”
Angle retired from in-ring competition at WrestleMania 35 in 2019.
