Kurt Angle says he will return to WWE, he just doesn’t know when

Kurt Angle

The Rumor Roundup on the site today makes note of the fact that Kurt Angle told Mark Madden in a recent interview that he’ll be making his return to WWE. Now, via PW Torch, we have a transcription of what was said.

“I did talk Triple H about six weeks. it was a good conversation. We’re on good terms. Will I return? Yes. I don’t know when. They have not contacted me about the brand split. I’m not expecting anything. So, if they do contact me, great. If they don’t, that’s fine as well. As far as bringing me back, I don’t know when. I don’t think it’s going to be during the brand split. At least, they haven’t called me yet. There are a lot of rumors going around, but nobody has contacted me about coming back for the brand split. ... What they want to do and what they told me is they are trying to push the younger guys to make bigger names. They weren’t necessarily looking for older guys, and then all of a sudden the brand split occurred. I can still go. If you’re going to bring someone back, it should be guys who can still go."

Angle has been talking about returning to WWE for some time now but reports have always indicated the company simply isn’t interested. Apparently that changed, at least if we can believe what he’s saying here.

Do you want to see him back?
