Kurt Angle ‘Negotiated’ Return Match With Big Name

WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle remains one of the most technically-gifted pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He had arguably the best rookie year in WWE history as he won the WWE Championship within a year and competed at the highest level for many years after that.



Angle would leave WWE in 2006 and made his way to TNA Wrestling, where he spent a decade in the company, surpassing the seven years he stayed in WWE. He also had instant classics in TNA, including matches against the likes of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuiness and many more.

Angle would make his return to WWE back in 2017 and also had a short run as an in-ring competitor, before returning for good at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. He lost his final match against Baron Corbin, in a move that Angle truly regrets till this date.

According to a report by PWInsider, it was revealed that Impact Wrestling opened negotiations with Kurt Angle last year about the idea of Angle returning to face off against Ken Shamrock.

When we interviewed him last year, he didn’t rule the idea of special appearances out.  Impact Wrestling opened negotiations with him last year with the idea of Angle returning to wrestle Ken Shamrock but they didn’t come to terms as we are told Angle opted out of the discussions.  So, it’s possible we haven’t seen the last of him in the ring but as a full-time performer, it’s not happening.
