• WWF Legend Pitched The Idea Of Facing Seth Rollins
When WWF Legend Kurt Angle returned to the company in 2017, fans had high hopes for the legendary superstar, hoping to see him face the top WWE stars of the current generation.
However, Angle’s in-ring run during his return was lacklustre.
During his podcast, Angle noted that he pitched the idea of facing former WWE Champion Seth Rollins, but WWE didn’t book it.
Here’s what he said:
“Yeah, we discussed it, but it never came to fruition. You know, there are a lot of people I talked to that I wanted to wrestle with. It never came to fruition either, so, you know, I don’t think WWE had a lot of plans for me to wrestle big names, and I get it.
I’m sure there are liability reasons, you know, with my painkiller addiction problems I had in the past and my injuries, and so they pretty much protected me when I came back, and I didn’t do a lot of wrestling.”
