Kurt Angle says WWE contacted him about returning to TV 'for the next month or so'

Angle was brought to St. Louis for the Royal Rumble but didn't appear on the PPV.

On the latest episode of his podcast, Kurt Angle said that WWE recently contacted him about returning to television "for the next month or so."

Angle revealed the news when "The Kurt Angle Show" co-host Paul Bromwell asked him about a call he had gotten the past week.

"Yes, I did [receive a phone call], from the WWE" Angle said. "And they want me to be involved in the show for the next month or so. And I'm really excited about it. So, we'll see what's in store for me."

The podcast episode was released on Sunday but was recorded before the Royal Rumble.

WWE brought Angle to St. Louis for the Royal Rumble, though he wasn't in the men's Royal Rumble match and didn't appear on the pay-per-view. PWInsider reports that Angle did film content for Peacock/WWE Network, including an episode of Table for Three.

Angle retired from in-ring competition with his match against Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. He was released from his behind-the-scenes position with WWE during the company's April 2020 releases, but he's made multiple on-screen appearances for WWE since then.
