Kurt Angle Says WWE Canceled His Comeback Plans

Angle was apparently due to return soon

A week ago, Kurt Angle announced on his Kurt Angle Show podcast that WWE had contacted him about a return to TV, to take part in a several-week angle.

At the time, Angle told co-host Paul Bromwell, "Yes, I did [get a call], from the WWE. And they want me to be involved in the show for the next month or so. And I'm really excited about it. So, we'll see what's in store for me."

However, Angle stated on the most recent edition of his show that those plans are now off.

"I went to the Royal Rumble. WWE wanted me to do a short program that they ended up canceling at the last second," he says. "I want to make it clear, I'm not signed with the WWE. They weren't going to sign me anyway, it was going to be a three week program. It got canceled."

Angle did not elaborate on what the brief angle would have entailed.

Angle had his retirement match against Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. A year later, Angle was released from his WWE contract, though he had made appearances since.
