WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle has not returned to pro wrestling since his release, but that didn’t stop WWE from offering him role. He is certainly one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever graced the squared circle. He had a tremendous career in WWE, spanning multiple World Title runs and incredible matches.
He has squared off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer and accomplished a lot. Angle retired from in-ring competition after WrestleMania 35, where he lost to Baron Corbin.
While speaking on his podcast, The Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle revealed that he was set to return for a three-week storyline before WrestleMania 38. However, WWE ultimately cancelled the storyline.
“I went to the Royal Rumble. The WWE wanted me to do a short program that they ended up canceling at the the very last moment, but we went to the Rumble, my wife and I. I also did some documentary interviews the day before, a photo op with the fans, but I want to make it clear I am in no waysigned to WWE. They were going to sign me anyway. It was going to be a three-week program. It got canceled, but you know, my obligation is to do the show, the Kurt Angle Show, and that’s it.”
Angle was released from his role as WWE producer back in 2020 as part of the COVID-19 budget cuts. It remains to be seen whether he will ever return to WWE as it seems unlikely at this point in time.
