Report: Kurt Angle Returning To WWE This Summer?



TNA star Kurt Angle appeared on Canada’s The Fight Show on Thursday afternoon and revealed that his current deal with TNA expires in August.

This is consistent with Kevin Nash’s recent comments on ESPN radio earlier this week. Nash was asked whether he and Booker T returning to WWE could result in a new incarnation of the Main Event Mafia. Nash joked we could see it happen this summer, since Kurt Angle could be a free agent by then.

At this point, there have been no indications that WWE is interested in bringing Kurt Angle back. Angle has had favorable things to say about WWE in recent months, but he was having trouble keeping up with the WWE lifestyle back when he left several years ago and that would likely still be a big concern.

Here are a few Angle quotes from @thefightshow on Twitter:

“My contract (with TNA) is up in August. I will keep my options open”

“I have no plans of leaving, but I don’t think Booker T and Kevin Nash did either.”

“Up until 2-3 days before the Rumble, Booker and Kev were signed with TNA. They asked for their release”
