Rumours have surfaced this week that Kurt Angle’s current storyline is going to result in a match-up between Kurt Angle and Triple H somewhere down the line.
While from a storyline point of view, this definitely makes the most sense, the rumour has been met with a mixed response from the WWE audience. Fans have dreamed of an Angle return for years and a match with Triple H was never near the top of their wish-list.
Angle’s return to the ring is really a case of if and not when, but fans would much rather see him do battle with a younger star or a more active one at the very least. With that in mind, let’s take a look at 5 potential opponents for Kurt Angle who would be a better option than Triple H.
Okay, so I know that Brock is no spring chicken himself these days and that this match has been seen plenty of times before in the WWE. The last time these two wrestled, though, things were very different. Both stars have changed a lot since their last match and the two could no doubt produce something just as special as their old matches but still manage to add something new and exciting to it.
The two also share an amazing chemistry in the ring, the kind that only really comes around once in a generation. Having the two square off would also prove to be box office gold for the company, with both men being household names around the world.
In terms of setting this up- a feud between a GM desperate to keep his job, and a champion who just refuses to perform really shouldn’t be too difficult to get off the ground- add in the pair’s history and this one pretty much writes itself.
