Kurt Angle was recently interviewed by Sporting News and had a few interesting things to say about a potential return to the ring in WWE, including that Vince McMahon told him that they have “some wonderful plans” for him.

On meeting Vince McMahon:

“We met and the first thing he did was embrace me,” said Angle, who will headline the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame . “He hugged me like I was his son. It got really emotional. We didn’t leave on the best terms. It wasn’t bad terms, but there were some angry remarks, especially from my side and Vince was frustrated with me, with everything going on at that point in time.

“To be able to come back and Vince say just let it go, let everything in the past go. We’re here now, there’s nothing you need to worry about that occurred in the past. Just worry about right now and the future. We have some wonderful plans for you in the future.”

On a potential return to the ring:

“I’ll sit down and talk to Triple H and Vince McMahon and see what direction they want to go,” Angle said. “I know, for sure, they want me to work in the company, most likely in a non-wrestling capacity. They know I’ve been active and they know that I can still go just as well as I’ve ever gone.

“We haven’t talked about it but, I’m sure, in the back of their minds they’re thinking we’re going to release Kurt Angle on some of these talents in the future. It’s not guaranteed and I have not talked to them about it at all. Seeing people like Sting and Goldberg come back to do some programs, it’s promising that Kurt Angle will get a shot.”
