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.

The Olympic Hero has competed against the best of the best that the professional wrestling world has to offer. This is especially true during his time on Smackdown in the early 2000s as well.

His match against Rey Mysterio at SummerSlam 2002 is regarded as an all-time great. While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Angle admitted that he was nervous about facing Mysterio before the match.

I know [on if he regrets not having more matches with Rey Mysterio]. You know what? I’m really surprised by how well we worked together. I’m not surprised; I’m just surprised that I was able to adapt to his style. I was really nervous about the first time I wrestled him at SummerSlam, but it worked extremely well, and the more we worked together, the better we got.


Kurt Angle proved that he still has pro wrestling in his veins no matter what after returning to RAW earlier this month. 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.
