Following up on yesterday’s news that WWE wants CM Punk to return, it would appear that they are not the only one! In a recent Facebook Q&A session, the question was put to Kurt Angle regarding a potential Punk return. His response was an emphatic yes. “I hope he comes back,” Angle stated. “I think his MMA career is over. He needs to go back to what he does best.”
Kurt Angle himself is no stranger to being on bad terms with WWE, and his comments add further fuel to the fire that a return for Punk may soon be on the cards. Angle recently returned to the WWE, first to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania 33 in Orlando, Florida.
Angle then followed this up when he was announced to be the next Raw General Manager, and has returned to WWE’s flagship and weekly wrestling show. Angle has also commented on his return, and believes that his current role is a test by WWE officials to prove that he is clean and sober after years of substance abuse. Angle is currently engaged in a storyline which should come to fruition tonight, as the person behind the recent telephone calls and texts is due to appear on tonight’s Raw.
In recent years, Angle has been wrestling both on the independent circuit and also mainly for Impact Wrestling (formerly TNA Wrestling). If Angle were to return to the ring, could we potentially see a dream match between the Olympic Hero and the Best in the World?
