• Surprise Return Expected This Saturday At WWE Super Show-Down
We have noted before how some people backstage in WWE want Rey Mysterio to make a surprise return this Saturday at WWE Super Show-Down event, but PWInsider noted that Mysterio will now return straight at SmackDown 1000.
However, that doesn’t mean there’ll be no surprise return to WWE Super Show-Down.
According to the No Holds Barred podcast, Kurt Angle is set to make a surprise return to WWE programming this Saturday at WWE Super Show-Down.
Angle was written off WWE programming a few weeks back when Stephanie McMahon sent him on a ‘vacation’ and named Baron Corbin as the Acting RAW General Manager.
We’ll keep you updated regarding Angle’s status.
