Kurt Angle is a WWE Hall of Famer, and rightfully so. He retired from in-ring competition, but you can never say never in pro wrestling.
During his podcast on AdFreeShows, Kurt Angle alluded to getting back in the squared circle. The Olympic Hero has been through a lot, but we are in a day when anything can happen in the pro wrestling landscape. Retirements aren’t forever, as long as there’s a good enough reason to make a comeback.
Kurt Angle opened up about his knees and the fact that he needed to get them replaced. Then he teased the idea that he might have some more time in the ring in store for the future.
“I’m not gonna lie to you. [The thought of a return] comes across my mind here and there every once in a while but I just had knee replacements. I’m in no position to think about wrestling right now. It’s been two and a half months since I had my knees replaced. Both at the same time. It’s a little rough doing both of them at the same time. But you know what I’m not gonna count out anything.”
“I’ve told so many reporters and people from the news that I was done but there is a chance that I might end up coming back. I don’t know when, but it’ll probably be for one last match. I guess I’m putting it out there tonight. I didn’t wanna do that until my knees got better but I’m not gonna lie to you. I think about it all the time. I possibly could [return], yes.”
We’ll have to see if Kurt Angle really returns. Crazier things have happened, and he did win two Olympic gold medals with a broken freaking neck, so we know he has what it takes to make anything happen that he puts his mind to.
