According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Triple H and Kurt Angle met last weekend while both men were at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio. Angle was there to be inducted into the International Sports Hall of Fame while Triple H was filming footage for the WWE.
No one knows what was talked about, and Angle isn’t expected to be on RAW tonight from his hometown of Pittsburgh, but the fact that both men were talking after it seemed like the WWE wasn’t interested is an encouraging sign.
JC’s Take: I will still be surprised if Kurt Angle ever wrestles again for the WWE. With the way they handle their Wellness Policy nowadays, I’d be surprised if Angle could even pass one of those. There’s always been the rumor that Vince McMahon doesn’t want a former Olympian dying in his ring as well.
I have no doubt that Angle will one day be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. I could easily see him headlining a class in the coming years. I also think he’d be a great trainer at NXT or even a manager for someone the WWE wants to push. But Angle seems interested in having one more match in the WWE. The problem is, I don’t think anyone in the WWE wants that to happen at the moment.
