Former WWE and TNA star Kurt Angle issued the following statement via his official Facebook page late Friday night. Angle appears to be responding to a report by Dave Meltzer that stated he would not be returning to the company (WWE officials reportedly confirmed on Thursday) after a recent radio appearance in Pittsburgh.
We reported on Angle’s comments earlier this week during Mark Madden’s radio show in Pittsburgh where he stated he had a “good conversation” six weeks ago about a possible return to WWE with COO Paul “Triple H” Levesque.
Angle, 47, opted to not re-sign with TNA and had his final series of matches with the company back in March airing on Pop TV. He has remained active on the independent wrestling scene working select dates.
