The announcement of Kurt Angle coming back to the ring kind of came out of nowhere like a perfectly timed RKO. Only it will be an Angle Slam and that’s even better.
It’s awful this booking decision had to come as a result of Roman Reigns’ unfortunate illness, but nobody really knows what to expect in WWE now do they? After all, we thought the upcoming TLC pay-per-view event would be a show based on the return of The Shield, and now it turns out there’s going to be another kind of return and it’s on a Hall Of Fame level. I just wonder how much of the roster needs to get sick before they call Shawn Michaels.
But since WWE approved Kurt Angle to return to work at TLC, it’s only logical he’ll be ready for a future event as well. Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet sent out a very interesting social media message saying he’s heard since Angle is cleared to wrestle now it makes it “very possible” The Olympic Hero be working one of the big four PPVs as well.
In all reality, Angle should work more shows if he’s been cleared to compete. It also makes me wonder when he was actually medically cleared in the first place.
Whoever thought the breakout of a viral infection would cause such awesome possibilities for the future of WWE? Let’s hope Kurt Angle is able to have a good showing in Minneapolis so it might encourage WWE to book him more often. Also, seeing how it’s a TLC match let’s hope everyone is able to stay safe because Raw has enough people out of action already.
What a wild day.
The Shield reunion being pushed back obviously changes future plans and I’m hearing Kurt Angle being cleared means it’s very possible he wrestles at one of the big 4 events now. pic.twitter.com/LReltRDBLY
