Backstage news on Kurt Angle’s in ring return

Kurt Angle TLC

As seen this past Sunday Night, Kurt Angle made his in-ring return for WWE after almost 11 years during the TLC PPV as a replacement for Roman Reigns.

According to reports from Pwinsider, the person behind Kurt’s in-ring return was none other than the boss, Vince McMahon, as it was his idea to have Angle replace Reigns.

The idea was reportedly proposed on Thursday before the PPV, and once everybody agreed to it they scheduled a physical for Kurt the next day.

According to the site, WWE announced the news of Kurt’s return within minutes of Angle passing the physical to get back into the ring.

Regarding the possibilities of Kurt Angle having another match, it’s been said that currently there are no plans for him but since he has passed the physical, the door for more matches is open.

    wish they would let bryan wrestle. bryan vs angle in the ultimate raw vs smackdown match at mania would be the best main event in years.

    Really depends on how long Kurt can go. I mean, he had to sit out most of the match at TLC to protect him, so a one on one match at this moment would not be particularly long or spectacular.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    They are building Kurt Angle vs The Miz for WM 34. I believe that was the original plan for Kurt Angle in ring return. I believe they will keep building it up.

  • MrDr3w

    I was thinking the same thing, but if they can do it right, that’s more of a Mania match in my eyes.

    Shane vs. Kurt at Survivor Series would be interesting…
