A WWE Hall of Famer isn’t getting back in the ring. Are they?

Kurt Angle hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. Since then the legend has undergone multiple surgeries aimed at improving his quality of life and undoing the damage his career did to his body.

While Angle famously broke his neck on multiple occasions during his amateur and professional wrestling careers, he’s also had knee replacement surgery and spinal surgery since retiring.

After some “extreme muscle therapy” with Dr. Beau Hightower on his YouTube channel, Angle joked that he felt so good he could get back in the ring. While the line is something of a throwaway comment, since retiring, Angle has repeatedly hinted at a comeback only to reiterate his retirement.

“I’m feeling good, I’m feeling loose I might even go back to the WWE and do a couple of matches.”

After hanging up his boots, Angle turned his attention to continuing with WWE backstage. As with many former stars, Angle transitioned into a producer role, but it wasn’t something he ever really enjoyed.

Speaking on a recent episode of his podcast, Kurt Angle admitted he “didn’t put that much in” to the job, and wasn’t surprised he was released when the company began making cuts in 2020
