It’s being speculated that WWE might end up booking Angle into a match sooner than previously expected.
Angle revealed earlier this week that he had not been tested by the WWE for in-ring participation yet. With SummerSlam around the corner WWE might end up using Angle to boost up their ratings and provide a spectacular main event for the biggest party of the Summer. Also, rumors of Angle’s current storyline setting up his feud with Triple H did go viral a few weeks ago so there might be some relevance to them.
While speaking to Esquire Middle East, Angle talked about the chances that he will compete in a WWE ring again.
“Well right now I’m just concentrating on my behind-the-scenes role as General Manager. I haven’t even had a physical yet and I don’t expect I will have one until they [the WWE] have some more detail of what they want me to do down the line. But is there a possibility? Yeah, there is a definite possibility! I think it’s more than likely it will happen. I don’t know if it has to do with this new story line that’s going on right now, but I’m sure that it will happen eventually. I still haven’t taken a physical though so I’m not going to get my hopes up until I do that.”
“My main aim would just be to contribute and wrestle some of the younger guys. There’s a lot of great talent right now and I’d love to be able to mix it up with them. I would also imagine that, being who I am, I’d get a pretty high profile match at Wrestlemania if I did wrestle again. And yeah, I think everybody wants a title-run. I’m 48 years old – I’m still in great shape, I can still go pretty hard in the ring, but then again there are other talents out there that need the title more than I do. Don’t get me wrong it would be a lot of fun if I did get a title run, but at the same time as long as I’m contributing and helping out the company I’d be happy with that.”
