With the speculation of Kurt Angle returning to the WWE ring flaming up, it won’t be coming up as a surprise if we see the olympic gold medalist back in the WWE ring for his final run with the company. After retiring from TNA, Kurt Angle always has been willing to return to WWE and with the World Wrestling Entertainment looking to make Royal Rumble into one of the biggest of all times, it looks quite certain that they will try their level best to throw in some big names, to which Kurt Angle fits the bill perfectly. It has also been speculated that WWE is trying to contact other big names for an appearance at Royal Rumble 2017 even if it is for a one-off appearance. Angle recently said during a Facebook Q&A with fans that he wants to fight Brock Lesnar again. Moreover, he also said that he would not fight in the independent wrestling circuits from March next year. Kurt Angle has again and again hinted his return to the place from where he left in 2006 citing health reasons. In a recent interview he said “For me to go back it’d have to be the right match, the right program, and also you have to have interest from Triple H and Vince McMahon. I spoke with them a few months ago, they do have interest. They just don’t know what they want to do, and they don’t know when.”
Kurt Angle has also shown keen interest to face Daniel Bryan but with that being almost next to impossible, Seth Rollins hits the bull’s eye. Seth Rollins is currently been speculated to face Triple H at Wrestlemania 33. With that being said the next guy who looks legit is the anti-american Rusev. Rusev has never found any proper opponent who has pushed him up the list but facing the american hero kurt Angle will uplift his wrestling career. Guess we have to wait till Royal Rumble 2017 which takes place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on 29 January.
