Former Olympic gold medalist and professional wrestler Kurt Angle parted ways with TNA wrestling earlier this year and has made it clear that his ultimate goal is to return to the WWE to wrestle in the near future.
The former world champion is no longer taking independent bookings and has been telling everyone that he will be in the WWE by April 2017.
Kurt Angle still has one match booked with Alberto Del Rio and another match with Cody Rhodes before he finishes up his dates on the independent scene.
WWE backstage rumors have Kurt Angle returning as a surprise entrance in the WWE Royal Rumble but we all know when rumors like this leak Vince McMahon does his best to throw the fans off and move the expected dates of a wrestlers debut. However, there is a lot of smoke to the rumor of a Royal Rumble return so consider it extremely likely.
