Kurt Angle, an Olympic medalist who is considered as one of the greatest in-ring tacticians in the history of the WWE, is reportedly going back to Vince McMahon's company once his deal with TNA expires.
According to F4W Newsletter as reported by Bleacher Report, the belief in the WWE is that Angle will eventually find his way back to the company. The report says: " For whatever it's worth, the belief within WWE is that Kurt Angle will return to WWE when his TNA deal is up, but it's very unlikely he'll ever be able to pass the company physical. The word is that he'll likely end up as a trainer for NXT."
Angle debuted in the WWE in 1999, winning the King of the Ring tournament a few months later and the capturing the WWE title in his first year. He was in the main event of Wrestlemania 19, losing the WWE title to Brock Lesnar in a memorable match. Through the years, he had some epic encounters with legends like The Rock, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin and the late Eddie Guerrero. During his stint, he won the WWE title four times.
But he left the company in 2006 to sign with TNA. He has been a TNA heavyweight champion and currently has a feud with Bobby Roode. It is believed that with his chronic neck problems, Angle will not return to the WWE as a wrestler and instead be used as a character. It could also pave the way for his potential inclusion in the WWE Hall of Fame.
