In recent weeks the WWE creative team has had discussions regarding TNA wrestler Kurt Angle’s possible return to the company. However, the discussions are more like “what if?” scenarios as opposed to any concrete plans should he return to WWE next year. Angle’s three-year contract with TNA expires next September. He did a shoot interview with RF Video back in September and spoke highly of his former company, Vince McMahon, and even Triple H.
Those interested in an Angle return are pushing the idea of having him a work light schedule similar to that of Shawn Michaels, who does television tapings and pay-per-view events, and a few house show events, but not a full schedule. They feel Angle wouldn’t hold up to a full-time schedule due all his injuries, not to mention that he’d almost be 41 years old by the time he could return.
Both Shane McMahon and SmackDown creative team writer Michael Hayes have already pitched ideas for Kurt Angle’s possible return to World Wrestling Entertainment. On the other hand, some people in the company are critically thinking why even discuss the subject of bringing him back after his controversial departure two years ago and the “time bomb” state he was in back in 2005.
