WWE Hall of Fame inductee Kurt Angle says he ain’t ruling out a return to wrestling — but he’s adamant the rumors of a surprise appearance at this weekend’s Royal Rumble are simply not true.
Angle recently pulled out of a Jan 28 wrestling event in Scotland — the same weekend as the Rumble — and some people thought it was a clue that Angle was clearing the deck for a Royal surprise.
But TMZ Sports spoke with the former WWE World Heavyweight champ who put it bluntly — “Royal Rumble is not gonna happen.”
“A lot of people are assuming it, a lot of writers are writing about it … I haven’t talked to WWE about anything after WWE Hall of Fame.”
Angle is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in March — and says he’s excited about his future with Vince McMahon‘s company … which could definitely involve a return to action.
There’s more … Angle also thinks Hulk Hogan could get a 2nd chance with the WWE — soooo, old-school rematch???
