There is a lot of curiosity about the future of Kurt Angle, included among the most relevant names among those that WWE had fired in April and that somewhat surprisingly reappeared twice in the Stamford rings during this week: he did it at NXT, as special referee of the clash between Timothy Thatcher and Matt Riddle, and then at SmackDown to weave the latter's praise.
A double appearance that sparked a flood of rumours and inferences about the future of the Olympic Hero. The question that all fans are asking is whether his return is destined to be definitive (as happened for example with Drew Gulak) or whether it is destined to last only a few weeks (as has been said for a long time regarding Drake Maverick).
Kurt Angle's WWE future
The authoritative 'Wrestling Observer' had dealt with the matter a few hours ago, who actually seemed to favour the second hypothesis, but in the meantime, something seems to have changed.
At least as reported by Paul Davis of 'WrestlingNews.co': "I have been told that everyone in WWE expects Kurt Angle to return. He is currently held 90 days off after his WWE deal ends, but if they haven't already offered him a renewal they will soon.
Surely Vince McMahon doesn't want to lose him with the risk that he will go to AEW, I learned from an internal WWE source," said the reporter. The double appearance of Kurt Angle was therefore not a coincidence, and we must expect at this point to see him more and more often on the screens of WWE shows.
Angle is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. Former opponent and industry veteran John Cena said of Kurt Angle's legacy within WWE: "He is, without question, the most gifted all-around performer we have ever had step into a ring. There will never be another like him."
