WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has not returned to pro wrestling since his release and is unlikely to ever will. He is certainly one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever graced the squared circle.
Kurt Angle made his return during this past week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. He had hilarious promo segment with The Alpha Academy. Not only that, Angle had a memorable throwback segment with Edge.
While speaking on his podcast on AdFreeShows.com, the WWE Hall Of Famer talked out his RAW appearance. He also revealed that the hilarious segment with Edge was his idea.
“They had a limo pick me up at my house which was really cool to take me down there to the event. We immediately went to rehearsal. Triple H was the head of rehearsals. He was telling me what to do, how to do it, and what to say. There were also other producers. (Rockstar) Spud was also one of the producers. The writer was Ryan Ward, and I thought he did a great job.
I haven’t seen him in so long, and to see him in his new position, he’s doing really well with it. It’s very comfortable. He hired a big team underneath him to take care of everything that he needs taken care of, kind of like the way Vince did it because Vince ran everything, but he had people reporting to him. Triple H had to set up his own team the same way Vince did who he was comfortable with. Obviously, he hired Road Dog, part of D-Generation X. Shawn Michaels took a step up in the company, so you know, he’s got his boys there, and I think that’s great because they all have great chemistry together.
Seeing Edge and Rey, especially those two, I mean guys that I was in the company with back in 2000, 2005, it was a lot of fun to reminisce about the past and what we were doing that night. I did a really cool funny pre-tape with Edge and Rey Mysterio where Edge got me again with the poster boards on the back that said, ‘You still suck.’ It was a lot of fun. You know, we reenacted that from 2002, 20 years later. It was actually Edge’s idea, and it was a great idea.”
Kurt Angle proved that he still has pro wrestling in his veins no matter what. We will have to wait and see whether the WWE Hall of Famer will make his return to WWE television somewhere down the line or not.
